what age is appropriate for a kid to still drink from a sippy my sons 3 and is going to start first yr preschool this fall twice a week for a few hours anyway he is so obsedded with his sippy he has to have it all the time carrys it with him everywear and cant go to bed with out it water or not . my mom says hes still a baby and iam being mean but i think he's too old. not to mention he has me fill it up all day long. he has twin brothers thats going to be two in a couple of weeks and that makes matters worse bc they are not ready to let it up so i feel like iam punishing him i dont know what to do ive tried the big boy thing and he dont care he says he needs it and just cries if i dont give it to him.

My daughter is 2 and she only drinks from a sippy cup when we go out. At home she only drinks from an open cup. I didn't have any problem taking her sippy cup away. She just wants to drink something any way she can get it. Maybe you should try giving him the cup with a straw and maybe that will help.
