    my DH was getting frustrated because she was hungry and wouldn't take a bottle ( of ebm, of course ) and tried a sippy - she drank it right up. I guess she's telling us she's ready

    you mean ready for solids? Because she drank from a cup? I wouldn't count that as ready if it were me. Babies who are newborn can drink from a spoon or cup. Instead look for the signs of readiness in the kellymom link. What's the rush? Early starting of solids can also lead to issues with food intolerance as their gut may not be fully closed.
