When my daughter was 6 months she was given a sippy cup with water the doctor stated if the baby seems thirsty and the weather is hotter attempting water at 6 months with a sippy cup was fine.
Oh hmm.. I never knew this, Tamara! I didn't realize water could be given that early.. wow! :) Thanks so much for sharing :) Did your kids take a sippy cup well?
apparently some people would suggest water earlier than 6 months i know that my mom kept trying to get me to give her water at 3 months but being a first time mom i was very by the doctor so if they doctor didnt approve it i wasnt doing it lol honestly the only reason we started that early is because when she started eating solids she got constipated and the doctor told us to give her 1/2 prune juice 1/2 water in her bottle but since she was breastfed she didnt have a bottle so sippy cup it was!!
I didn't know kids could have sippy cups that young. Good to know! :)
She took her sippy cup great until she turned 1 now she wants a grown up cup lol or water bottle. I wasnt sure she would do good with the sippy cup because i breastfed so she never had a bottle really but she learned quickly and loved it
