    Sippie Cups....

    Advertisements
    My daugther is 7 months old. She is my first baby. I am trying to introduce her to drinking out of a sippie cup. I bought her a Nuk Orthodontic sippie with a soft nipple. All she does is chew on it. She will not drink out of it.... Any Advice is appreciated

    No advice from me. My daughter is almost 13 mons old and will only take sips on and off. Like your daughter, mine chews alot. Could be she be teething? Bella is cutting some top teeth right now.

    I find that the playtex hard spout dripless is best for chewers and yes teething will not help. I wouldn't be too concerned about trying to give her water. Honestly the amount of water in breast milk and formula is really all they need till they are atleast 12 mths

    I'm not a mom, but I know a couple of people who have tried the Boon sippy cup and love it.

    It's got the hole in the middle so it's easier to hold on to than a 'traditional' cup, the sippy spout was designed so that the child doesn't have to tip his/her head to drink out of it, and it's cute!

    My oldest had no problems switching to a sippy cup. My little guy, however, only chews on the spout. I got him the Nuby cups with a straw instead of a spout and he LOVES them!

    I didn't switch DD to sippy cups until she was 1 year. I used the Playtex sport top ones. The top looks more like a botle nipple, being round and in the center so I think it helped her transition. She refused any other kind of sippy for a long ime....

    My son never took a sippy cup. I just bought him the cups with the built in straws. Now he's 3 and I just buy the disposable straws and use those with any cups.
