: My daughter is 6 mmonths old and thinks its great fun to steal my 2 and 4 year olds sippy's if they leave them too close and then drink out of them. Is it okay to sometimes offer sippy cups to her in place of a bottle when she is this young?

I have had my daughter on a sippy cup since about 5mos. My Pediatrician wanted me to start introducing her when she started cereal. Now at 10mos. of age she is an old pro at it.

There is no harm in a baby having a sippy cup in place of a bottle. Just put her formula in the cup.

Good luck.
