  • my first born started on a sippy cup at 11 months. my middle child refused a cup forever. i tried every cup they made. she would throw them back at me. by the time she was on a sippy cup she still packed her bottle around. it was like her comfort lol. she used it as a pacifier from 9 months to 2 1/2 years old. it didnt have to have anyhting in it. you could her her chewing it in her bed at night. everyone thought i was crazy but she wanted it. i mean what was the harm it had nothing in it. some babies are glued to their blankies she had her

  • i also weened mine around a year (a little before) .i gave him the nuby which is close to the bottle but is a sippy cup.he did great with it. i slowly replaced each bottle feeding with a sippy cup and saved the last bottle for bedtime.

  • I introduced a sippy cup at 6 months with my son. By 8 months he was completely off the bottle.

  • Your baby will tell you. Every child is different and mine just kinda weaned herself.
