    Default when did you start regular cup?

    I was wondering when we can start giving a regular cup to babies? DD can actually drink in a sippy cup but she prefers to drink from a spoon since it seems to go faster...
    DD1 for 9mo and DD2 for almost 12mo
    (using a Hotsling, ringsling, and Chimparoo but my favourite one is a Mei Tai)

    my son is 10 months and he will drink out of a regular cup, but only if I help him hold it. He loves to take sips out of my cup (of water of course)
    If I let him hold his own plastic cup he spills it, so I dont think he is ready to hold his own. He holds his own sippy cup and will drink from it though.

    We started giving ds a open cup around 14 months, mainly at the dinner table. We would just put a few drops of water...so it would be easier to clean up.

    We also would remind ds to use both hands and go s-l-o-w......he still says slow when he picks up his cup.

    DS also loves to take sips from my cup. So at around 9.5 mo I started giving him his own (I help him hold it). Now, about 1 week shy of 11m, he is able to hold his own plastic cups, but I put very little water at a time.
