An Overview On Sippy Cups

A sippy cup, sometimes called a beaker, is a type of drinking cup specially designed for older infants and toddlers. A sippy cup has a sealable top with a spout or a straw, which reduces spills as kids learn to drink from it. It’s a way to teach kids how to transition to an open cup with no lid from a baby bottle or breast.

Wondering when your baby will be ready for a sippy cup? There is no age limit but there are a number of developmental factors to look for. Typically, most babies start using a sippy cup somewhere between six and 12 months of age. Experts suggest introducing a sippy cup to your baby around the same time you introduce solid foods. Ensure that your baby is able to sit without support and that they are able to hold up a bottle or sippy cup and tip it independently to drink. These are good signs that your baby is ready. If you baby shows interest in what you’re drinking and reaches their hands out for your cup, this is another sign that they are ready for a sippy cup.

DWYM Fun Fact

If you’re having difficulty getting your little one to get used to using a sippy cup, there are a couple of tips you can try. Use the same type of liquid you use in a bottle – like formula or breastmilk and keep it the same in the sippy cup. This provides a sense of familiarity. The best time to offer a sippy cup is in the morning, as babies are usually thirsty when they first wake up. You can also offer the sippy cup at meals throughout the day. Just add in a few ounces of liquid to the sippy cup at first. Adding too much can make the cup feel heavy for kids.

The Sippy Cup Buying Guide

  • Pay attention to how a child drinks out of the sippy cup. Some have spouts while others have straws. It’s best to try a couple of different types of cups to see which your baby will like best. Some cups are easier to drink out of than others. Those that have a valve require babies to suck the liquid out, while for others they just need to tip the cup. Keep in mind that not all cups are leakproof.
  • Durability is a key factor when choosing a sippy cup, as it’s natural for babies and toddlers to drop their cups on the floor or table. Look for a cup that’s made out of a strong plastic and can withstand being dropped from a table-height to the floor.
  • The size of the cup affects its portability. Smaller cups are easier to fit in diaper bags or purses, while bigger cups are handy for inside the house or at the dinner table.
  • If your baby or toddler is interested in a particular cartoon or character, getting a sippy cup with their picture on it can encourage them to drink from it.
  • If your little one is having trouble holding on to a cup, opt for a sippy cup with handles. This can help them grab on and reduce the number of drops.
