  • 7 months. I started with a soft spout with handles. When they got the hang of it, I switched to a hard spout with no handles.

  • 5-6 months. Water only, until after they turned 1. I always gave my kids sippies when I started solid foods.

  • About one yr with my first child. Never with my 2nd because she didn't like it. She wanted a regular cup and did just fine without it. You don't have to use sippy cups, they are convenient but not something your child needs.

  • Gave both my kids one around 6 months. But around 7 months they both got the hang of it. I put a water-juice mix in it. Later on this summer I will put formula in it, I'm sure.

  • Around 5 months. VERY glad we started it that early too. One of my kids self-weaned from the bottle at 9 months.
