My daughter's Pediatrician in Fla always told me not to worry about taking her off the bottle or sippy cup until her teeth come in. She hasn't had a pacifier since she was 2 months, so we never worried about that.
I just recently moved to Nebraska and got on the WIC program here. I was given a stern lecture from the nutritionist there because my daughter wasn't fully on a regular cup. One like you and I would drink from. She said I should never give my daughter a sippy cup (she takes one during the day, only a bottle during night feedings its easier when shes half asleep) and that she should have been off the bottle at least 3 months ago. That would have made her 6 months. I've never heard of this.
Should I try to teach my daughter to drink from a regular cup?
All advice is appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
