I really like the Playtex brand of sippy cups. I have had many different brands, but I prefer the type of stopper that the Playtex brand has. It is easy to get in and out and wash, and it does a good job of leakage prevention. Plus they have a nice assortment to choose from and my kids have always loved them.

We used Nuby sippy cups with my daughter when we transitioned from bottle to sippy.

They are great because you can get ones with softer tops so it isn't such a drastic change. They're fairly leak-proof too (unless they shake it repeatedly upside down, lol).

Alot of my friends had great luck with the Nuby sippy cups also (

Avent have got to be the best for bottle or breast fed babies... they really dont leak and you can get different/replacement teats as they grow through stages too, i used them with both my children and will do with my next xx

I brest feed, so I started mine on the avent ones, they are rubber, and I usually put her rice cereal, bananas and water, sometimes applesauce too, food pross. it and she gets a smoothie in the mornings, sometimes it is to thick so you have to add a little more water or formula, whichever, I have a chuncky baby so the doctor told me to do 4 ounce of water a day, but she doesn't like water.

We use the playtex ones.. On the package it says 4+months so it would be great for your LO

I wuld recommend buying one that leaks first if she wasn't bottle fed. My son had some troubles figuring out how to use a sippy cup cause he'd never taken a bottle. There;s a great one out by nuby that is awesome, and they can hold on their own at that stage. As she gets the hang of it though, switch over to one with a valve and handles like playtex, but like others have said, bpa free. It'll be harder for her to chew through the spout on that one.

I started my daughter at 5 1/2months on the 5oz take and toss and she took to it really well they are flower shaped so it make it easier to hold for little hands two weeks later shes grabing the cup and drinking all by her self

tommee tippee has been great for my daughter from 6 months - she is now 12 months and still uses them so they are hard wearing. I bought a cheaper Boots own brand but she has managed to chew on the spout and ruined it. most of my mummy friends use tommee tippee with their babies too. its is also a free flow cup which is recomended by oral health.

We used the Avent sippies. They have two different kinds of spouts that are pretty decent in length; white for non-teethers and green if they chew on everything. Come in a couple of different volumes and lots of colors. They have a sport bottle like one too. All of their products work together. Oh yea, minimal leakage too.

i just use the playtex ones. the top doesnt come off easy, the spout is kind of soft, and there are handles.

i started my son off with the nuk brand however after using them & a few moms i know used i don't recommend them b/c they leak & the tops will pop out or get sucked in. try to find one with a longer spout.
