  • Around 8-9 months except my older son who was 5 months and figured out how to roll on his back and drink out of his sister's cup.

  • I didn't introduce a Sippy cup to my son until he was 11 months. He could hold it, but he'd only chew on it. Shortly after he turned one we started giving it to him as an only option during the day and he caught on right away.

    My daughter is 10 months and can use/hold one.

  • 6 months we introduced it. He was holding it at that point as well.

  • DD is 9 months, she can hold her sippy cup, kind of. she hasn't really gotten the upward motion with her wrists to get it up in the air to drink it. She just holds it under her face and bends down to suck on it lol

  • Almost 14 months! she has no depth perception and couldn't figure out how to get it to her mouth.
