Wiggle Bean is just over 7 months old but she does not hold her own bottles. I think this is more out of laziness (because she knows I will do it for her, smart on her part!) than the lack of ability to hold it on her own. That being said, I think it might be time to get her a sippy cup or transition her to a regular big girl cup.

Every time I have a cup, soda can or anything else that one would consume liquid out of, she makes a dive for it. I have given her a cup with a few drops of water in it and she has no trouble tipping it up and trying to drink out of it. I am not sure if she has ever actually drank out of a cup or if she just ends up wearing it but she sure gives it her all.
One day last week, I forgot the lids to the Medela bottles that I use for pumping. I ran to the store and purchased the Nuby No-Spill Sippy Gripper Cup to store my milk in for the day. I figured it would be good since she will eventually need a sippy cup anyway. I really like the cup, especially the no spill feature but I do not think that she is quite ready for that type of spout yet. I think that the Pressure sensitive Vari-Flo spout might be to different that her bottle for a starter cup. Also, I would actually say it is spill resistant rather than "no-spill" because I can tell you from experience, if the cup is dropped (thrown) on the floor, it does force the valve open and some liwuid is spilled.
Guess I am now on the hunt for a different cup design to see what will work for her so that we can do away with bottles. Don't get me wrong, I love our Dr. Brown's bottles but man I would love to not have to wash all those parts all the time.
All the shopping is one of the best parts of being a new mom! There is nothing hubby can say about it either, after all it is for the baby!
How can you deny this face anything?
