We have been using bottles with Everly since day 1, we have tried a lot of different brands.We have found two that she likes. Our little dear has recently become stubbornly independent. (I have absolutely no idea where she could have possibly gotten that from) She is not a big fan of being held when having a bottle, she has always tried to hold the bottle herself but is still figuring that one out. At the beginning of this month we noticed she was always reaching for our Starbucks cups we fill with water, so one day we did let her try to drink out of one. She was so proud of herself when she did, of course she was soaked all down her front, but she was happy!
Today we had our Friday play group, and I asked about it. A few mentioned that they do know other little ones who were started on sippy cups, or cups with straws early on. Jason and I had talked about it the other day, that maybe we should get her one and just see how she does. So I picked one up today.
Everly was thrilled to have something new, fun, and interesting. She figured out the handle idea right away. Learning to tip it back and drink from will be a whole lesson in itself for her to figure out. I am debating trying her on a straw cup of some sort too. Has anyone else started a sippy cup or straw cup around 6 months or so?
