At. 6 months when he started eating solids, I tried a sippy cup but he just took to drinking out of a straw really well at about 7 months so I used the tommee tippy no spill straw cups

We introduced sippy cups when we started solids around 6 mths. We use a variety of cups but I prefer the ones with hard plastic spouts. I found that with soft spouts my kids liked to ouch the spouts in and spill their water.

6 months. I tried about 5 different cups but the one I had success with was one with a rubber/silicone teat, similar to her bottles. At 12 months I re-introduced a hard top (she prefers the take & toss ones) so she'd realise she needs to suck rather than chewing the teat. My next challenge is getting her to drink out of a straw cup.

5 months for water. I found ikea to be the best, they don't have a valve so it's really easy for the liquid to come out.
My nurse suggested bottles for milk and sippy cups for water so bub doesn't get confused. It's worked well for us

From about six months when we started solids. We used a simple two handled sippy cup with a free flowing spout. Then a few months later while on my lap he grabbed my water glass and drank quite easily from that. It surprised me but we quickly switched to an open plastic cup and then to a plain drinking glass because the plastic ones kept falling over at the slightest bump. The glasses we use are heavy ones that I bought for 50c each from an op shop so there's no worry about him breaking them, and he hasn't (except one when he 'helping' me wash up the dishes the other day - so kind of my own fault).
PS - where did you get your rainbow sock monkey?!

We introduced water in a sippy at about 5 months old and we tried the spout cups but my DS wouldn't drink out of it. So we tried a straw cup and he loves them. We use the b.box sippy cup. They are amazing and don't leak if tipped upside down, they also have a weight that falls to the water when tipped upside down so they can use it laying down

Thank! So many replies so quickly! You've all been very helpful little one is 5 months and we are BLW.. He has started playing with some steamed veges while we eat.. Will have to invest in a cup soon it seems.
