  • My daughter started using a straw in July and she was born in January...sooo like 6 months? She used a straw for the first time at my cousins funeral.

  • my oldest i can't remember but I do know it was before a year. My youngest daughter will be 13 months on the 11th and she just learned how to suck out of a straw she doesn't do it all the time, but sometimes she can get something to come out.

  • My son just started using a straw about a week ago. He was eating one of the snack packs that comes with that pouch of fruit punch or juice of some kind, I put the straw in his mouth and squeezed the bag a little then he started sucking on his own. He turned 13 months on Jan. 13th.

  • my oldest was on a sippy at about 6 mo. so i think it was about 9 mo when she used a straw on her own.

  • My son drank from straws before a year old, he doesn't like sippy cups so we found some Take n' Toss ones that don't spill. He drinks from those just fine.

  • A little after a year for me. He probably could have done it before, but I didn't think about letting him try.
