When did your child first drink from a cup?

A real cup. Not a sippy or with a straw.

  • I never really tried much before now. He's 2 1/2 and can/has drank from a normal cup for a few months. I still don't give them to him all the time because he is careless with where he puts it. I mainly give him a normal cup (or a cup with a straw) at the dinner table.

  • My son is 6 months old right now and that seems to be all he wants. He will drink out of a bottle but if I give him a sippy cup he cries until I give him a drink out of a regular cup... My grandma says my Mom was the same way. She just went straight to a cup

  • about 2, but really I feel she should had sooner. My husband almost lost his life in an accident and it was traumatic for her. So many ppl watched her while I was at the hospital with him. She used sippy cups longer than I'd like and believe that is why.

  • I guess he's drinking from glasses right now. But only when I hold them. He's 9 months. He loves water more than anything else.

  • When my dd was 1 we tossed all bottles and went to sippies and regular cups, so that was when she first started with "real" cups.

  • my 5 year old drank from a sippy and a ragular cup for a while. I gave her a ragluar cup for meal times to teach her how to use a cup I think she was fully off sippys when she was about 3.5. My 2.5 year old has been off the sippy since right before 2 years old.

  • She was able to drink from a real cup without spilling it at around 18 months old. Until then, it was a spill proof sippy.
