I have a 9 month old and am interested in trying to skip the sippy cup entirely. Obviously, this is a new(er) invention and women have not always used them so I am looking for advice on ways to skip using them and go right to a cup. My son is exclusively breast fed and eating some solids. He only takes a bottle at daycare and then sparingly. They give him a sippy cup every once in a while. I don't mind, they have to watch more than once kid at a time!
A friend of mine told me to just give him a small cup with a little water in it and let him experiment. Apparently, over the course of a few weeks, he will learn.
I appreciate your advice in advance! I am not looking for people to tell me I am crazy for wanting to do this etc.
