Can someone give me some tips or advice to train my 1yo to drink from this cup and to do so independently? At the moment I have to hold her other sippy cup for her while she drinks and she won’t hold it herself.
My daughter is 15months and ever since she was 111 months, I tried for her to use it and she could care less. I guess it depends on the kid. She likes the ones with the straws, because the flow is faster. My niece on the other hand, she’s 19 months and has been using the 360 since she was 10months old. Hope this info helps.
Looking at it now, I think my daughter would prefer a straw cup. Because she has shown interest in drinking from a plastic straw when we’re out at a restaurant.
It took time for my daughter to learn how to drink from this too. I tried to give her this cup every single time she wanted to drink something so she could learn a little bit faster. So far every sippy cup has had a little bit of a learning curve.
My nephew refused these cups. He only used the straws or just a regular cup. Sometime a child just doesn't like certain cups. My son is 6 months and loves this cup though.
My daughter refused sippy cups. We ended up using an open cup and open cup with straw before a year old. Just start by putting a small amount of water in the cup during meal times or snack time.
I had to squeeze the the green soft and the white a few times when it was near his lips for water to come out but after doing that a few times he realized water would come out if it was in between his lips and had no problem taking it... he does prefer straws though
Let go/don't hold it. She'll get it eventually after she explores it enough.
It’s only been day 2 and she’s learning pretty quick! I was surprised that she even held it herself. The only thing she needs to learn is to tilt her head back to get the water. I think I just have to not give up lol I praised her when she was able to drink the water and she was pretty happy about it 😁
Thank you everyone for your advice!
