my daughter is 7months and I gave her a sippy cup. she's only used a bottle a couple times when she was about 3 months old. I'm just trying to get to aquainted with it, so hopefully by the time she's ready to wean she'll know how to use it. any tips? how old was your baby when they started using sippy cups?

Yes I have bought 3 different sippy cups and the nuk seems to be the best so far. She likes to suck on it, but when the water (with a little bit of juice in it sometimes) comes out, she gets this grossed out looking face and lets it fall out of her mouth. lol.

Our Daughter was THE SAME :) Its Totally normal... What I did to get her used to it was full the *sippy (Gerber Nuk Soft sippy) about half way with *water and let her experiment with it on her own... She never took the bottle really either and it got frustrating at times but is WORTH it now... She is 15 mos and I wont have to try and ween her off something else in the future :)

*I chose the Gerber Nuk sippies because they seemed like they were "softer" for baby... My daughter didnt get any teeth until she was 12 mos... So I felt more comfortable with her having something more soft on her gums - there are other brans out there that have the soft top too :)

*The reason I put water and only water in the sippy at first is because of the fact that she did not know how to use it yet... I didnt want to waste any of my milk at all and I still do not like my daughter drinking too much juice... Plus if they spit it out or fling the sippy somewhere you have a piece of mind knowing that its only water... My daughter has had the hang of it now for a while and still Water is mine and her fav to drink... :)
Also when she first started the sippy it was more of a teether then anything else, but it was alright because I would put cold water in it and she would go at it AND drink the water :)

Good Luck hope this helps :)

Experiment with different types, different forms of lids... Took us several months before she got the hang of it.
