I've been offering my 8 month old a sip of water here and there now that she's having solids. She goes NUTS for it. I don't give her more than a small sip or two once or twice a day.
She obviously relies on me to hold the cup and tip it toward her to drink. I don't mind doing it this way but I like to give her the opportunity to feed herself and it would be great if she could take a drink by herself too.
I bought a sippy cup for her. It is the kind with the valve that requires suction. I'll put an ounce of water in it and give it to her. She likes to hold it and throw it on the floor but as far as I can tell she hasn't gotten any water out of it.
Is she old enough for this? Is there a different style of sippy cup I should try? Maybe sippy cups are not the way to go? Is water even OK? How much? Feeling clueless here! Thanks
