  • We did @ 9 months. he didn't really get the hang of it until about 11 months, but when he did he was totally done with bottles on his own.

  • all my kids were around 9-10 mos so by 12mos when I take the bottle they have the basic concept.

  • I started earlier cause I BF so I just used it for juice and water. So 6 or 7 months, but it took her awhile to get the hang of it

  • I think around 6 months. But she never really started using them until last week. And she just turned 1. I breastfeed, and I didn't want to introduce any artificial nipples before 6 months. Then, because she was already 6 months, I decided, screw bottles altogether, let's just start right off with a soft spout sippy, lol.

  • We did at like 8 or 9 months? I breastfed so we never did a bottle, and I think around 8-9 months we started giving her some water here and there...

  • I started my kids on a sippy around 6 months - it took some time for them to get used to it.

  • I think around 8 months is when I introduced the sippy. he usually wanted nothing to do with it. At 11 months, we gave up bottles for good, though and he got the hang of it really fast. The soft spouts were key for us at first.
