How long should I wait before giving my son a cup?

My son is almost 10 months old and is already acting like he wants to drink out of a cup, but he won' t take a cup. There will be times when he tries to drink from his sippy cup, but then realizes its not his bottles and throws the cup. What should I do?

  • Start working on it. It could be the type of sippy. We went through 5 different ones before we found one our oldest would take!

    Our boys all used a sippy at 6 months, so I'm sure your son can do it. Just work with him and when he does start drinking from it....get rid of all the bottles. If he can drink from a sippy, there is NO reason he needs a bottle!
