CafeMom Team will be posting Baby Encyclopedia questions in the Babies Category from Tuesday till Friday of this week. For every question you answer, you'll be entered to win one of the $25 Gap Gift Cards that we're giving away each day!
But there's a catch... only "real" answers will be entered to win the $25 Gap Gift Card. If you do not have tested advice or an informed opinion on the topic, please wait to answer the next question. There will be plenty of opportunities to enter the contest.
We are using these questions to create a mom-tested resource for new and expecting parents, so try to use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling when writing your answers.
Read Official Rules.

I think the best time to introduce a sippy cup is around 6 months old. By six months old the child is beginning to develop their fine motor skills and drinking from a sippy cup is really good practice for that. It also encourages independence and self-feeding which is also important at that age. I like the sippy cups with handles on the side for the little ones just beginning.... it's much easier for them to use compared to the bigger ones.
