Sippy??

Ok I have a few sippy cups for my son and I give it to him and he just plays with it... I actually tried to drink out of it and it was soooo very hard to get anything out even for me?!  I have to suck EXTRA hard.. we have the nubby brand.. I mean if i cant get anything out how is he supposed to!?  Am I missing something?

Re: Sippy??

  • is there a way you can increase the air flow that might help. We are skipping sippy cups and going straight to cups so I dont have much advice. for cups we use small outdoor cups or s shot glass lol sounds funny but easy for baby to hold

  • We use the TommyTippee brand, and I love them. They don't leak, and it's easy for her to drink out of. (I tried it out before I gave it to her) I don't use anything else that is that brand, but i really love the sippy cups.

  • DD hasn't really figured out how to drink out of the sippy yet, but she can out of a straw cup.  I thought that would be harder for her but she gets it right out!

    We had better luck with the straw sippy with DS #1 too.  DS#2 drinks well out of both.  I personally don't love the Nuby brand.  They're hard to clean and break open easily when they are dropped on the floor.

  • We have playtex and they are great for no leaks and you don't have to try to hard to get fluid out of it. My pedi actually said that it's a little early for sippy cups, so I'm holding off.

    I do think all kiddos are different and some will take to the cups faster than others.

  • We have a straw cup that has a valve on it and it's really hard to get anything out of that thing (I tried it too). I also got some Playtex sippys and they have a removable valve. Right now DS just bangs the cup on the table or chews on the lid anyway, so he's go a ways to go.
