Which sippy cup?

I am trying to get my DD to use a sippy cup (she is 9 months). I bought the munchkin one that everyone swears by, but I this will be my 3rd month trying to introduce it and she absolutely HATES it! What other brand or type of sippy cup would you ladies recommend? I really want her to start using one now, so that by 12 months she will not need the bottle anymore.

  • all my kids like the NUBY from walmart. Not the one with the soft tip! They are like $2, and my son (10 months) has been using it since 6 months! Get one with no handles as well!!

  • I like the Nuk but they are pretty expensive($6-$7), I used the bottles as well. The Nuk sippys have handles that pop off for easy cleaning. I'm trying a new sippy cup too, my son has special needs and is almost 4 and strictly g tube fed, I'm trying anything to make him want to take things by mouth, good luck!

  • Are you using the spout ones? My kids would not drink out of a spout ones but took to the straw ones immediately. I tried to get my first son to drink from a spout sippy for about 8 months. He was still on the bottle at 14.5 months and I couldn't get him to take a sippy. Once I introduced the straw one, he was off the bottle in 4 days!

  • Thanks ladies! I will have to try a NUBY one and a straw one, and see if either works for her. She just really hates this one that we have. She will play with it for awhile, but once she actually wants to drink she gets angry and throws it.

  • We used NUK from walmart because she didn't like the hard spouts. The NUBY ones were too tough for her where the NUK were softer on the gums/teeth.
