  • 4 months for me. And he didn't like the cups with the handles...I had to take the handles off. He can even drink out of a straw, he started that when he was 6 months.

  • Well, all there was at the time was a gerber cup, no handles. With a hard top and a hard plastic valve the attached in the lid to prevent leaking. He had to suck and make an effort in order to get his milk out.

  • 7 months-breastfed baby. He only liked the Nuby brand that were soft & flexible. He'd just chew on the hard cups.
