    Default Tell me about sippy cups?

    I'll be starting solids with my DS when he's 6 months (currently 5 months and exclusively breast fed) and want to get a sippy cup for when he starts to drink water. Does "sippy cup" mean one of those ones with a hard plastic spout with little holes, that the baby tips up into his mouth? Is there such a thing as a sippy cup that is non-spill if it tips over? Can little babies suck through a straw? Keen to get the low-down!

    DD1 had a cup with a straw that you had to sort of 'bite' on to get the liquid to come out (so it didn't spill if it tipped over).

    DD2 I didn't bother with a sippy cup at all and just went straight to an ordinary cup. I found that so much easier that carting around her sippy cup and replacing the straw etc.

    DD used a straw until about 3 weeks ago when she decided she would use a sippy cup. We bought some el cheapo non spill ones from Woolies and they are great. They don't spill and she loves them.

    But yeah she was happier with a no spill straw cup for several months.
