Several tips on how to make transition easier

- start with a soft, nipple like sprout

- show them how to raise a cup to their mouth

- Give it some time. Some babies take to it while others doesn't.

- try different sippy cups until they find that its comfortable to them.


My pediatrician recommended that we introduce the sippy cup now at 6 months of age. Our pediatrician told us to give her water, just a little at a time for now. I fill up the cup and let her drink a bit, it took her awhile to get the hang of it, only because we are breastfeeding and rarely have a bottle. The sippy cup is still new to her.

I still breastfeed so my daughter is well hydrated, I might offer some expressed breastmilk in the sippy cup too.
