  • get one with handles, gerber makes it and just put her hands on the handles, she'll get the hang of it.

  • They have all different types. I introduced a sippy to my dd at 6 mos... it had an extremely soft spout and handles. Also, Nuby has spouts that seem to make it easier to drink out of. Maybe try the begining stages of sippy's and let her have one all day. Show her how to suck on it and make it a game by taking turns. Keep encouraging her and she will eventually!

  • You can continue to breastfeed, and you can try a regular cup - just hold it for her. Some kids don't use sippies, they go from breast to glass.
