    Default Sippy cup recs and weaning off bottle

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section, I didn't know where to put it.

    My DD turned 1 last month and currently drinks two bottles of formula a day. She also drinks water out of a b.box sippy cup with the weighted straw.

    I'm looking for some advice about:

    1. When should I be trying to transition DD off the bottle? How do I go about this and do I then give her milk in a cup?

    2. Should I be trying to get DD off the straw cup and using a spout or a small children's cup?

    3. I find DD drinks really well with the b.box straw cup but she loves to throw them off her high chair and has broken 2 already, they're not cheap to replace either. Can anyone recommend a good sippy cup either with a straw or not if she shouldn't be using a straw at this point.

    Any advice would be great, thanks!

    I quite like the woolies cheapo straw bottles. They can leak a bit, but are fine if they are just sitting and drinking. We use them for mr 2's nightly milk as he has a story. I like them cause there's no valve or anything - he just couldn't figure out the value ones!

    I'm no expert... just passing through the info I've got from my dds feeding therapy. ..
    If she's ready just swap the bottle to a sippy cup. If she is already drinking water from one then she's probably pretty good at it so I would just offer milk in the cup. My pediatrician said user a different colour cup for water and one for milk.
    Straw drinking is fine. If she's good at it then go with it. Straw drinking is actually something we work on at feeding therapy so it's a good skill to have.
    As for cups I like the Tommee tippee cup. .. simple and easy with no valve so they have to regulate flow themselves. It is like the pic. They're pretty cheap.
    Also those simple take and toss ones you buy from woolies are great too.

    Some others with more experience than me might weigh in to help you!!

    This is DS2 current one. He is also 1.

    I've been through that many sippy cups and I have found this to be my favourite.
    He chucks it off the high chair all the time and it hasn't broken.
    He never splutters when drinking from it and it doesn't leak.

    He still has milk from a bottle as for him it's a comfort thing.

    Thanks so much! Really appreciate it. Lexim would you mind telling me what brand that cup is, I couldn't make it out from the picture. Will check them all out and hopefully one of them will work for her

    I recently switched from a Tommee Tippee spout cup to Nubby ones, so much better & they haven't leaked yet. Currently on special at Target for $5, they have spout & straw types.

    Nuby does a good one with a straw. Doesn't leak and is pretty robust!

    I wouldn't get a straw one for milk as it can't be cleaned properly.
