    Default which sippy cup do you use?

    My DS is 6 1/2 months. I think he would do well with a sippy cup. My question is which brand do you use and why? I know there are alot of them out there, and I would like to know which is the most popular before I go out to buy him one.
    thanks in advance

    It kind of just depends on your baby. You may have to experiment with a few before finding the one that works best for your lo.
    With my daughter we went through 9 different kinds of sippies before we got the First Years "Take-n-Toss" 4 oz cup which she finally would accept. I would put a link but I can't find it anywhere - maybe they don't make it anymore. It was a tiny cup - no handles - but easy-to-hold scallops.
    My son, on the other hand, who is 6 months, has a Nuby sippy (omg do NOT go to nuby-dot-com, its porn!) which he loves to play with and can even get a few sips out of here or there.

    We use the Gerber sippy cups. We also have a Nuby which my son never figured out. He seems to prefer sucking on the cup, which is what must be done with the Gerber ones. (Nuby's release the liquid when baby bites on the spout).
    I agree with pp, you just have to try a few and see what they prefer.

    My son is 4 1/2 months old. He never took a bottle but, at four months I started letting him try the Avent Naturally Sippy Cup. He will take bm and water from it. It has handles and the sipper and handles also fit on the avent bottles.

    My dd isn't quite up with the sippy cup yet but, we are going to use the nuby with the handles. It has a value and all of that. It looks like a nice replacement from the bottle

    we have both the avent sippy and the nuby sippy cup. dd seems to prefer the nuby one since she can easily get the water out of it. when she has the avent one, she bites at the mouthpiece part and gets frustrated and ends up throwing it on the floor. with the nuby, she can get the water out by biting the spout and i can see that she swallows some of the water that comes out (the rest of the water runs down her chin...hehe!).
