Re: 10 1/2 mo old - not much interest in solids or sippy cup
DD is 6 mo so she is much younger - but we starting the sippy now as she's refused a bottle the last 3 or 4 times she was offered.
I give her the cup at every "meal" with just water in it. She's in a big "put it in my mouth" phase so I just helped her with the tipping. I also took the valves out because tipping and sucking is just too much for her to handle.
When I'm away from her at dinner time two times a week she gets 3 oz of BM in a sippy cup. She is MUCH more interested in the BM than the water.
And I've heard of people putting juice in the sippy BC their LO will work pretty hard to figure out how to get the juice out! DD doesn't drink juice yet but if your fine with giving it to your LO that might help get some interest in the sippy.
Or just use a regular cup.
