Transitioning from the bottle to a sippy cup can be a lot more challenging than you expect! Babies tend to get used to the soothing and sucking sensation with the bottle and don’t want to let it go. Around 6-9 months your baby may be ready to start using a sippy cup. 

Researchers from the American Academy of Pediatrics show around 12 months your baby should no longer be using the bottle. Getting rid of the bottle helps prevent tooth decay. The sugar from the milk being served in the bottle can cause unwanted tooth decay. So instead of giving your baby a bottle at night start putting their milk in a sippy cup. Also try adding other liquids such as water or natural juices low in sugar to your baby’s sippy cup. The more you practice giving them the sippy cup the easier it will become! 🤗 ✨👣
