Is there a sippy cup designed to help transition from a bottle?

I have looked online but there are several. Any suggestion on which ones are the best? My sister is in college so I have her daughter several times a week and the doctor says I need to get her off the bottle. She just hit a year old. My sister is so busy and I am trying to help.

  • Nuby and fisher price both have cups that are silicone top but function on a pressure and suction action. From there you can go to the nuby flip top cups that have a straw that works on pressure and suction. These are the only ones that I have found that truly do not leak. I have used several as well as friends who have tried others. These straw cups have saved my carpet. By the way the fisher price cups don't leak as much as the nuby ones do and you can get them cheaper at dollar general.

  • Born Free bottles have a transition type nipple...

  • There is a sippy that DS really liked.. I can't remember what it is called. It looks like a sports bottle, almost, or a tumbler sippy, not a short fat one. The top is silicone, like a nipple, but it is shaped like a sippy, and the silicone rests inside a ring, just like a bottle. They are awesome! The only problem is, DS would stick his finger through the silicone hole in the top. Until he figured that out, it worked wonders. Now he has transitioned to a regular hard topped sippy.

    Hopefully this makes some sense.

  • I used the Nuby ones with handles when my DD was 6 months old and had absolutely no problems switching her. GL!

  • We started with the Nuby ones also when my son was 6 months. Once he was 13-14 months he started to chew on the tops, so we switched to the hard spouts, but by that point he knew what to do with a sippy.

  • My son threw the ones with handles for some reason, but i know that is what most parents start with. I tried 3 different brands of the soft spout (silicone) tops. They were really hard to suck on- i tried it =). We struggled for weeks. SO I tried the normal sippy cups that were easier to hold-- like the lil' gripper spout cup by playtex. In my experience, this worked the best.
