I don't see why most people think that sippy cups are more appropriate for toddlers then bottles. It's the same stuff going in there right? Sippy cups aren't very different from bottles, so they don't provide much of a "step" to regular cups. I have two sippy cups, and I have wondered why I bought them ever since I actually got them. The only advantage I see is that sippy cups hold more then bottles do.
So, why do most people think that sippy cups are "better" for toddlers then bottles?
Well, if you use a sippy cup like Nuby then there really isn't much of a difference. But if you use a hard spout sippy cup, then there is a difference. The biggest thing has to do with their teeth. I don't remember exactly what my son's dentist told me, but basically it is better to use the hard spout sippy cup because it causes them to suck less. With a soft spout, they suck on the bottle/sippy cup more and it can cause problems with their teeth.
