: Hi,

: I was just wondering when others introduced a regular plastic drinking cup to their toddlers?
: My son who will soon be 14 months drinks from a sippy cup fine but has shown some interest in drinking from a regular cup. He has tried the regular cup a few times but usually ends up spilling some of his drink on himself. I have also not tried a straw with him yet because I'm worried he will just chew on it and not realize what it is for.

I don't know if you would be interested, but I have seen a new cup they have out. Wal Mart had it I believe. It is a regular cup with a lid kinda thing that keeps from spilling. They push on it with their top lip as they drink. You may want to try that, if you aren't sure yet. I know my son just got the hang of the sippy cup and he is close to 15 mos. Good luck!
