My twins are 2.5 and we will soon be dumping the sippys(pretty much alredy have). I've always aimed to dump the sippys by 3.
it depends on the child......my oldest wasn't sippy cup free until she was about 4yo, my second dd was probably around the same age. My son will be 3 in April and no longer uses a sippy cup, he either drinks from a water bottle or a cup.
When they aren't spilling everywhere
I would say...around age 3.
my daughter uses one and she is 5 the only reason she has it though is because she is ADHD really bad and has bad outburts so it's more of a protecter from everything getting milk or juice on it if she is in a bad mood.
It depends on the situation. My 4 year old still drinks out of a zippy cup but my 18 mo th old uses a cup without spilling. It just depends. If we are out and on the go they both get suply cups so they don't spill. If we are at home they both get cups. Even school aged kids have little cups with straws that could be considered sippy cups in their lunch boxes. I wouldn't worry too much about this as long as your child can drink out of a regular cup at a reasonable age.
