: 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.

My daughter has been drinking from a straw since she was 6 months old, My oldest daughter was the around the same age. You be supprised by a baby instinks, They all suck lol
I started my oldest daughter on a regular cup when she was 18 months old, any eariler she would of ended up soaked, Although she did end up wet it learned her to be carful.

My 12 month old is intrested in a reg cup now, but could you imagin amount of times i would be changing her clothes lol.

Good luck
