My little girl is 9 months old and she has always been picky with certain nipples. Now that shes 9 months I want to start introducing sippy cups to her. Everytime I take out the sippy cup and hold it up to her mouth.. she turns her head.

Now is a great age to start introducing the sippy cup to her! She may not want it now but keep trying! That way by the time she turns 1 she may be used to the sippy cup and you can easily take her off the bottle. My son did not start drinking out of a sippy cup until now and he's 14 months old. But the only sippy cup I found that he would drink out of is the older tupperware sippy cups. But you will probably end up with a cabinet full of sippy cups until you find the one she wants. But they do have the learning system sippy cups if you wanted to try her on those. I hope that this information helps you and let me know how it goes please!
