If they can drink from it and don't object... yes. I've known of 4 month old babies to reject the bottle when mom had to go back to work, so onto the sippy cup they went. Many babies would prefer a bottle at that age, but there is nothing wrong with using a sippy cup as long as the baby is ok with it and is still getting the right amount of formula/breast milk that they need.

As early as they will take it is fine. If they can learn to get all the milk that they need from the sippy cup.... there is no age that is 'too young'.
