My DS is almost 6 months old and is more or less exclusively breastfed - we had a nightmare to begin with and I was in pain for the first 3/4 months, so I am very proud to have made it this far!
Anyway, he is showing signs of being almost ready for solids - he's not quite there yet but I think he will be soon, and I am getting everything ready. We have a high chair and some long sleeved bibs on order, but I'm not sure what to do about a cup. I have read in various places that sippy cups are not very good for latch/dental/speech reasons etc, but I don't know how much of this is fact. I was thinking of trying the Doidy cup and will probably order one in time, but I think it will be too messy to begin with.
So I really want to know what people on here think of sippy cups, and whether or not they are ok. We had awful latch problems and his latch still leaves a lot to be desired (he doesn't flange his lips well or open his mouth very wide, he seems to dislike having a lot of breast tissue in his mouth, and he makes a terrible mess when he has the odd bottle!), so I am very cautious about introducing anything that might make it worse.
If I do get a sippy cup, which might be the best for us? I have looked at the Nuby and Nuk ones, are they any good?
