Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

no such thing

i offered a cup to my daughter at 6 months. (she's 20 months now) within 3 days, she was a pro at using one. lucky, me, i know. my only problem with sippey cups? no matter what the label says, there is no such thing as a spill-proof sippey cup! i have tried playtex, nuby, nuk, munchkin, ziploc, fisher price, gerber, etc. you name it, we have tried it. they all claim to be spill proof, but when you turn them on their side, or god forbid upside down, you still have liquid dribbling out! i have just given up, and offered a regular plastic cup with a snap on lid and straw. is there anyone else out there fed up with this false-advertisment? let me hear from you.
