  • If you want to start now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. There are sippies made for 6mo+ that have soft mouth pieces and things. We put water in one and just let Kaylee have it throughout the day. This is also gives you plenty of time to go through different brands to find which one she likes. (Just a tip - Kaylee just played with the ones that have handles, but the ones without she used right away)

    Good Luck!!

  • I have always heard at around 12 months

  • I think generally 1 year is a standard age. My son was 14 mos when we really said "no more" but he still gets one right before bed. I think age 3 is when the drs start getting concerned it will effect dental development.

  • The best time....well, like everything else, that depends on what is right for you and your child.

    The recommended time is 12 months old.

  • The best time is as soon as possible to avoid dental problems. I took DD off the pacifier as soon as I noticed teeth coming in.
