  • I never heard of smart sip - what is it?

  • All kids are different of course, but my youngest niece is 7 months old and drinks from smart sip cups all the time. They are my cousin's favorite ones.

    I would say buy just one and see how she does with it for now. If she can handle it and loves it then you can get her a couple more; if she isn't quite ready you can put it up and try it out periodically until she is able to use it.

  • OH ok so it's a cup? (Sorry I thought maybe it was some kind of nutritional kid's drink) I tried looking it up on the internet but all that came up was some computer software. :\ Yes I agree with NEMommaof3, just try her out - if she can handle it by all means, give it to her! :) My girl preferred a straw before she was used to the sippy cups, so I always got her cups with straws. I didn't know that was out of the ordinary until much later. Now she's 2 1/2 and she still drinks from sippy cups (just to prevent spillage) but if we're sitting at the table & she's not active I give her a regular cup now and she does well.

  • If you are talking about the Gerber Smart Sips drink - then no, it's designed for toddlers not babies. She needs to have formula or breastmilk, and very small amounts of juice if you allow it.

  • I know people say shes too little blah blah. I say its your kid and if she likes it and it goes good with her then buy it. I never listened to that crap. My dd was off formula at 11 mths not a yr or after. Not bashing those who listen to that but it is your kid and your decisions.
