Do any of your children drink from this and is it ok ?

I have a 15 month old DD. She drank for a while from a sippy cup and it was really easy for her, as she wasn't that much into bottles (weirdly enough!) I tried once to give her to drink from a straw and now she loves it! She drinks water from a straw now or better from this: http://www.smartparenting.com.ph/images/site-alpha/articles/being-a-parent/mommy_rated/baby_gear_travel/fb_cup_with_straw.jpg

Is that ok for her age? As I said she's 15 months, 16 soon. She is capable of drinking from a sippy cup but she prefers this. Also, when I have tried giving her to drink from a plastic normal glass, she knows not to suck on it, which was so awesome to see really! So I am wondering, do any of your children drink from the cup/straw kind of thing? Thanks!

  • That's great that she's advancing in cups soo early. That will make it really easy on you in the long run. As well as keep her happy knowing she's getting a big girl cup. You should really be happy that she's doing this. Yes, it is great that she's drinking from a straw cup. You should really encourage it.

  • My 15 month old prefers drinking from a straw as well : ) She has been doing it since she was 10 months but she still uses the sippy cup too.
