Re: Should i offer water in a sippy cup?
I had the same concern about sippy cups too... I would just give him the regular cup if you're worried about it. It's not likely to cause him to wean, but you don't want your supply to drop just because he's drinking too much water from a cup. You could also just put a bit of water in there. I think one or two ounces of water a day should probably be ok?
My mom said my younger brother weaned at 10 months to a regular cup because he wanted to be the same as everyone else. I think she could have kept him nursing and not offered him the cows milk, but recommendations were different back then.
