    Question Cup or Sippy Cup

    Hi Mums

    Im trying to introduce a sippy cup to my DD. We have a tommy tippee one but she doesn't realise you have to suck it to get the water out so ends up just playing with it!

    Do you guys use a cup or a sippy cup?

    Any hints/tricks? Or any recommendations on sippy cups?

    I quite like the idea of a sippy cup rather than a cup as there's less chance of spillage! And if it does get knocked it won't all come out at once.

    Cheers!

    ETA i just realised it has a bit inside which can be removed to stop the need to suck so will give that a go. Still interested to hear whether you found a cup or sippy cup better?

    Default Cup or Sippy Cup

    Do u mean a sippy cup vs a cup with no lid? If that's what u mean then most if the contents will end up on the floor I used the TT one which is a cup with a flat lid with a spout that folds down flat if that makes sense. So it was a sippy cup but had no valve.

    How old is your little one? TBH the first few months were mostly playing with the cup and not drinking, my DD eventually just got the hang of it. She just used to shake it a lot. Just takes a bit of patience

    Default Cup or Sippy Cup

    DS2 is 6 months and I bought him a cup with a straw. He never mastered the sippy cup (neither did DS1). The straw is aimed at 12 months & older but he sussed it out almost straight away.

    This. DD just couldn't get the hang of the sippy cup and used a straw cup for about a month or so before being able to use a sippy cup. I found the nuby one was the best for her with the soft spout as opposed to the TT hard spout.

    Ive got both the tommee tippee and the nuby one. I like the soft lid of the nuby one but it just seems really big and squashes her nose haha she's 6 months. Ive taken the valve out of the TT one so i'll persist for a little while. But i like the straw suggestion. Thanks ladies

    Default Cup or Sippy Cup

    My DS didn't like the expensive sippy cups. I bought some take and toss cups with spouts and he loves those. A lot cheaper and if they break or you lose them it doesn't matter so much.

    Cup, with just a small amount of water in it so it doesn't matter if it spills

    Sippy cups are for going out, not at home

    Except DS2 used the take n toss ones at home if he was having milk, because he loved tipping
