  • We tried sippy cups for about a month but he wasn't getting the hang of them then when he was around 13 months old we tried the straw cups and he did great on them so we switched him to those.

  • I believe she was about 8-9 months old. She got her brother's cup with a lid and straw and just went crazy.
