Bottle to sippy cup!

Moms I urge you to start sooner! There is no need to wait until your child is more than a year old. It creates dependancy & all I hear about is how hard it is & blah blah blah. My daughter is 6 months old & i have her drinking out of sippy cups. I would say dont start more than a week or so before 6 months. Get the Nuby sippy cup & start with water. If your baby doesn't like that a more expensive Dr. Browns one is specifically designed for starting at 6 months. It is amazing! 

What age did you start the transition?

    My daughter was breastfed and never took a bottle but I started introducing an occasional sippy with juice or water at 9 months.

     Thanks for the info. I was starting to wonder if DD just doesn't like the sippy cups I have here. I'll try the brands you suggested. She's 13 months and barely sips from cups. :/

    Yay another breastfeeding mom! We are an endangered species. lol. I only use the sippy cup for water so far & had to start because she was trying to drink out of my glass & making a mess.

    I started trying with sippy cups at 6 Months but they all flowed way to fast for ds. He didn't transition to a medium flew nipple until almost 9 months. I took bottles away cold turkey at 13 months and now at 19 months ds is working on using regular cups.
    It all depends on the kid. I plan to breastfeed this baby for more than 2 months, but things happen.

    DD1 and DD2 were both bottle broken at 6 months. They both took to their sippy cups right away. DS I started introducing them at 6 months but he didn't start to actually take them til 8 months. I am so glad I did. Every child is different and progress at different ages with the bottle to sippy but for me this was a blessing. We started with Nuby and he now takes the Gerber ones that are for 7 months and up. He doesn't like any of the hard spouts.

    My 3 yr old daughter started trying to wean off the bottle at 3 months when I had to stop giving her breast milk due not being able to pump any longer. I was able to hold her off till about 5 months when she would take a bottle before bed. By 6 months, the minute you handed her a bottle, it got thrown. Easiest kid to wean ever.

    My 3 month old will rarely take a bottle. Mainly boob here. At 6 months, we will introduce a sippy.

    i introduced but didnt force at 9 mos. I bought those soft spout nubs cups and they did the trick. She was off the bottle at 14 mos. I put her milk in the sippy. Plan on the same thing with my youngest. Im blessed. My older sister still lets her 4 yr old have a bottle once in a while. OMG!!
