I am in the middle of taking my son completely off the bottle. Last night we went to bed with a sippy cup instead of a bottle. He is only ten months old but do ya'll think he is to young? I think that if he does good with it then what is wrong with it?

I think it's fine. My DS refused the bottle at 10 months and we started giving him milk in a sippy during the day. A lot of people think that's too young for whole milk but hid ped said it was okay and he did fine.

I cant give my son reg milk he is lactose intolerant. So he is on the special milk (lactose free).

I say if he is 10 months and he took the sippy sup then go ahead and keep that up.  I don't think that is too young. If I'm not mistaken my ped said 9 months is ok to start introducing the sippy cup

i breastfeed so i introduced the sippy cup at 4 months for a little water. I think you should keep up with the sippy cup. my opinion it is not too young. especially if you want your lil one off the bottle.

wtg if you can keep him on sippy cups.  I always see 3 yr olds walking around with a baby bottle and it makes me frustrated.
