# Sippy cup rules?

member
I am so confused about how to start using a Sippy cup... I always heard no formula in a Sippy cup but most people I know do it... We've tried water in a Sippy with no luck yet. Should I try formula. How did you get LO to use Sippy cup?

## Re: Sippy cup rules?

• I use formula in a sippy. Asher has been using one for a few months now during meals and snacks. I just handed it to him, he played with it a little, and I would help him get it to his mouth. After a few tries he began doing it himself.

I put formula in a sippy...otherwise, I'm not sure how I would get her to drop all bottles by age 1, which is our goal.  If she was doing water in sippies and still getting formula in a bottle, it kinda defeats the purpose.  We are also waiting the full one year to introduce WCM, if that makes a difference?

DS will only take sippy cup if there is ice in his water. He will drink cold juice mixed with water but his plain water has to have ice

we have been giving DS formula in sippy cup with breakfast but water in it for all other meals, he will quite happily take it either way.
