  • I started my DD at 6 months. It has worked out wonderfully. She will be one next week and she is down to one bottle a day. The rest of her drinks/formula are in her sippy cup. Gonna go sippy's all the way the day after her birthday...YAY!

  • My son wasnt ready for a sippy until he was about 8 months old. I would introduce it early (6 months) and not worry if it takes a while for them to catch on!

  • My dd is 6 mo & I've been giving her the sippy cup for a cple of wks now. She was a little unsure at first but seems to be getting a little more used to how it works.

  • My 9 month old doesn't even like to hold her own bottle. My 2 year old didn't take to the sippy cup until he was almost 15 months old. We offer a sippy cup with meals starting at about 12 month. I think 6 months is too early.
