Re: please clue me in about water
Yes, she's old enough for a sippy. It's more of a toy than anything else at this point. As long as you're nursing on demand, breastmilk is probably more than enough to meet her fluid requirements. Put an oz or two of water in a sippy and give it to her with meals. Eventually she'll figure out what to do with it.
This is a great cup for beginning sippy users: http://www.booninc.com/products/Fluid

Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
