I have a 5 month old bub who has been on solids for nearly 4 weeks now. She is bottle fed and wondering should I start putting her formula in sippy cups?
I take it you still need to sterilise the sippy cups if you do this? Any thoughts/issues on introducing this? I have read that some babies do not drink as much from the sippy cups.

When should you introduce a sippy cup?

I would stick with the bottles for formula but introduce water in a sippy cup from 6 months and offer it when you offer solids.

We did too. Although I BF, as soon as DD started solids we started offering a sippy or straw cup with water in it. Boiled & cooled water at first.

Try lots of kinds of cups too as some babies struggle with the sippy cups but manage well with straws. My son just kept choking with sippy cups as it seemed to come out too quick for him so we just gave water in bottle to start and at about a year he started being able to use straws. Now he uses a bottle with sports type top which he manages much better with than the sippy cup. Some babied prefer drinking straight from open cup also.
