Babies: 3 - 6 Months

When did you start a sippy cup and what did you put in it?

Did you start with BM or formula? Water? What age? DS is showing signs of wanting to eat with us, but I don't want to give him any food until 6 mo. So I thought a sippy cup while we're eating would keep him entertained.

    I tried giving DS a sippy cup (has a regular bottle nipple) on thanksgiving. So 5 months. I want to make sure he's in his high chair when I give it to him so he doesn't confuse it for his bottle. He did not understand how to use it. I think it's still too early for him. We will try again in another couple of weeks.

    ETA: I put formula in the sippy cup.

    Around 5 months. We put in water or highly diluted apple juice. We had better luck with a soft straw cup than the traditional sippies.

    I offered my son a sippy cup at 6 months and he didn't want it but I tried again at 10 months and he was soo excited! So if he doesn't want it I wouldn't push it. But I put formula in it the first time he had it. But I wasn't able to breastfeed so I'm not sure which would be better for you, my son was use to formula.

    We are going to try this for a different reason... DD (almost 5 months) is refusing the bottle and only wants the boob. She will sometimes take a couple ounces but we thought we might try one of the transitional sippy cups and see how that goes if she will take to it. Today, I gave her a sippy we had just to see what she would do with it, and she grabbed one side and put the spout part in her mouth so maybe?!? i plan to use BM when we decide to try.
