I hate sippy cups. I hate washing them. I hate looking for all the parts. I hate when they get old and leak. I hate when they get forgotten in a bag or something are get super smelly and gross.

Six months is young, and sippy cups really aren't necessary. They can be useful in particular situations - some babies who reject bottles will take sippy cups, they can be useful for kids with certain developmental delays or disorders - but babies don't need to learn to use a sippy cup.

I'd say shes way too young to start using one. My eldest who is now 3 didn't start using a sippie cup until she was almost over a year old.

Then she's probably just not ready. Take a break from it for awhile and pick it up in a few weeks and see what happens. Every baby develops at their own rate.

If the sippy cup has rubber or silicone on it, she may not like the feel of it. and if it doesn't have it, she may like it better. Just keep buying sippy cups til she likes one or take them out of the package in the store and let her have it. If she takes it, u found a winner. Good luck.

Give her a lighter sippy cup.

I still hold it once in awhile for my daughter, and she is 13 months. It's just so cute they grow so fast.

My niece had the same problem ... we used the nuby sippy cups they have handles so it's easier for them. She got the hang of it now :)
