What's the sippy cup? Sippy cups can be a great way for your baby to transition from nursing or bottle-feeding to a regular cup. They can also improve hand-to-mouth coordination. When your baby has the motor skills to handle a cup but not the skills to keep the drink from spilling, a sippy cup can give him some independence while keeping cleanup to a minimum. Sippy cups aren't too expensive, so it's worth letting your baby test-drive several if the one in hand isn't working. (And as she grows to toddlerhood, you might let her pick out a brand-new kind herself, just for fun.)
What should I do if my child refuses the sippy cup? Dip the tip of the sippy spout into the breast milk or formula and then give it to your baby. She may just need a hint! Babies 6 months or younger should get only formula or breast milk in the sippy cup.
Additional Tips and Advice : Clean the cups as soon as possible after your child is through using them. This will prevent any growth or film from developing and make cleaning much easier. If you have access to a dishwasher, they make for easy clean-up. The forceful spray of hot water removes debris and sanitizes at the same time. If there is build up or you don¡¯t want to use bleach, sanitize the cups by boiling them in clean water for five minutes. It¡¯s a good idea to do this on a regular basis.
