Sippy use is at the parent's disrection really.

My pediatrician said we can use the sippy for as long as we are comfortable.  really what is the difference between the average water bottles that we take to the gym or wherever than a child's sippy beyond its larger size?  If they are at the table/highchair, I give regular cups but if they are mobile, I give sippy cups or regular type bottles that even i would use to reduce spillage.  Mine are almost 3 and 5.5 yrs old!

At almost 3, my daughter can drink out of a regular cup, but mostly uses sippy cups. The ones she uses do not have a spill protector spout or whatever they're called.
