Just wondering about putting formula in a sippy

Anyone else do this? I havent yet I just dont know if it would be good.
I have been giving her a small amount of juice a day so she gets use to her cup , I just wonder if I could do the same with formula?
She is almost 9 months old.

  • I do and started that first. I didn't want to start on juice because I did that with my first child and he always thought sippy cup meant juice. So with my second, I just give formula in the sippy.

  • My oldest DD she took herself off a bottle when she was 9 months old she wouldn't take a bottle anymore, but she still needed the formula until she was at least a year old after a couple days of trying to give her a bottle and her not taking it I gave up and just put her formula in a sippy cup she drank it and it seemed fine I think you can

  • At 6 months we stopped giving her formula in a bottle and put it in a sippy cup, it is no big deal, you can use a bottle to measure the water if you want.
