He is 9 months and I have been trying sippys for... probably almost 2 months. I got EVERY kind I could find, he chews the spout and then decides he doesn't like it. I finally discovered that he will drink from a straw, so I got the cup that's for 2 yr olds with the straw thing that pops out of the top. A lot of people say "well you aren't supposed to give sippy cups till 1 yr", but he won't drink juice from his bottle so now what? Should I give him the straw cup, not give him juice, or push the sippy?
Drinking out of a straw is great! It's much better for oral development than a sippy cup.
"Get rid of sippy-cups! Sippy-cups can promote tongue thrust, which causes the tongue to push forward when swallowing, can cause dental problems, and can promote the development of deviant speech production. Instead, use a cup with a lid and plastic straw."
