Starting sippy cup.

I have my son's 6 month appt and his doctor gave the okay for us to start a sippy cup... I was just wondering do you guys just use water? do you do juice? half and half? do you put their milk in the sippy cup...

  • I did juice and water for my older ones when they started. then when they were old enough I did milk. I haven't started Logan yet but have figured I need to go buy some for him so I can start soon.

  • We used a sippy cup with my daughter and we would offer her either water or 50water/50juice. Try different cups out- they are all different.

  • Water.

    In fact, I didn't even use a sippy cup. I used a Tuperware bell tumbler with a lid. I didn't want my kids to think they had to suck to get something out of a cup.

  • I have a 6mo old and I start soft sippy cups at 4.5 mos. (dr. said so). I only do formula/breast milk. I feel that juice has far to much sugar and since he only NEEDS formula/breast milk his first year ... id like to hold off on juice as long as possible

  • Thanks everyone for your post. So far Kayne is loving his sippy cup. I've been doing water to see how it does with that...... So far so good.
