  • Mine went from a bottle to straws at 11mo, all on his own! Ds2 is still too young for a cup.

  • I consider the "straw cups" as sippys too - mine went to a regular cup at 3. (Mine used sippys and straws interchangeably from around 9-10 months until 3)

  • Is it terrible I can't remember when my 4 year old did lol. But my just turned 2 year old uses regular cups when I don't have a clean sippy around. And I consider straw cups as sippys also.

  • My kid were about 3. They were more coordinated then and spilled a lot less. We still used sports bottles if they were drinking in the living room.

  • This makes me laugh. Hubs and I had a HUGE disagreement about this for several months. Kids were almost 4 before he finally saw things my way. I ended up asking him "do you think when they take sippy cups to school the other kids will laugh at them?"
    I think by 3 kids should be drinking out of regular glasses/cups. I didn't let mine walk around the house with drinks, they still don't do that.

  • Mine rarely had bottles since they were mainly nursed, so they were on the sippy from a year to about 18 months. I might have used a sippy for car trips or at other people's houses so they didn't spill after that, but they were ABLE to drink from a cup at 18 months or there abouts.
