    Default Cup for breastfed baby?

    Love to hear what type of cup your baby uses? 8 month old bub has started having a sip of water at mealtimes. We have a sippy cup but he cannot master the tip up and suck and is not fussed with the soft spout.

    I would love a stainless steel cup/straw bottle for him, we live in a very hot part of Oz and keeping water cool is a must.
    I suppose a cup would also help him transition to cows milk at mealtimes down the track?

    My 6 month old has a sippy cup with a straw, it's plastic though ... Brand magmag.
    my sister bought it for him at Xmas ... First time he held he knew exactly what to do ... Loves it.

    My DS loved the straw sippy bottles - he was breastfeed and got the concept of sucking on the straw straight away but always struggled with a normal sippy cup that needed to be tipped up.

    We also practiced with a cup in the bath so it didn't matter if water went everywhere!

    Good luck
