Hi Himanshi.. how old is your baby?? As sippy cup will be a little difficult for a baby below 5 months of age..

Hey no problem we r here to help each other.. well,I feel there is no need to sterilise as far as it is properly washed and cleaned.. but it is up to you.. you can sterilise to be on the safer side!

Hi Sunita.. how old is your baby? Generally sippy cups can be started from 6 months onwards.. I startd slowly frm 5th month. I tried Nuby and Mee Mee company. I found Mee Mee's 2 in one soft spout and straw sippy cup better.. initially your baby will find it difficult to suck from that soft spout but soon he/she will get used to it!

Hi Anu.. I feel it is just because of habit that he cries and wants bottle. Generally at his age they no longer have the need to suck so we can wean them from bottle.. Yes it is going to be tough on you as a mom but you have to be patient and not give in to his demand for bottle and soon he will understand. I weaned my daughter frm breastfeeding the same way. Also, acc to my doctor.. babies of 8 months can sleep thru the night i. e approx 8 hours without getting hungry.. so why don't you try and see whether he goes back to sleep without drinking milk in the middle of the night.. by cuddling him or consoling him by any other way you feel he will like. He could be thirsty, u can try giving him some water and see if he goes back to sleep. We should start weaning soon.. Ideally they should be off the bottle totally before 1st birthday. All the best! :)

U can ideally start a cup at 6 months ! I trained my son to use a cup from 6 months and he has never used a bottle or Sippy cup unless travelling . U can start right now . Earlier the better
