Alright ladies, so we're still no 100% w/ the sippy. Lev will take a few sips of water from his sippy and then plays w/ it. Since I've taken our the suction valve he ends up soaking himself :roll: I want to quit the bottle soon so I"m desparate. Should I put the suction valve back??

I voted no because I think you should get several different kinds of sippys for your LO to practice with, Nuby makes loads of cups with different types of nipples on them.

WHen he was learning, I took the valves out since he had to suck too hard to get anything. He got soaked, but I couldn't find a better way to teach him. After he got the hang of things, I put the valves back in. Good luck! I still haven't found sippy I like (even a little bit) and I feel as though I've tried them ALL,, but that's a whole new thread. :)

we use straw cups and regular Nuby cups that don't have valves in them so I didn't vote.

We also use the straw cups although we like the Munchkin brand. Lauren didn't like the nuby ones. We found these at Target:

When Jason first started with sippys, I used the Nuby soft spout cups that don't have a removable valve. He did pretty well with those, because they are closer to a bottle. I didn't move to valve cups until he started turning the Nuby cups upside down and putting pressure on the spout and making the water leak out :roll:

He also has a straw cup that I give him from time to time, because that's what I'll be switching him to eventually.

Good luck!

We use the Gerber soft spout ones. I've never taken the valve out and he's done just fine with them.

I voted yes because I use the valves now, but I just recently put them back in. Phillip started using a sippy at 6 months and it was too hard for him to get the water out so I took the valve out of the playtex cup and the avent magic cup (we also have 3 Nuby cups that don't have valves). Now that he is older, I have put the valves back in and he is doing fine.

When we first started her, we used the soft spout Nuby - they don't have valves, but don't leak either. When she got the hang of it, we switched her to regular sippy's with valves.

It takes a lot of patience and time for some LO's to get used to a sippy! Can I ask why you're in such a hurry to get rid of the bottle?

We've tried tons of sippy's! The playtex beginners ones were good, now we use munchkin straw cups which are perfect for us. I also have one munchkin cup that has a silicone spout. The valve is built in. This worked until we moved on to the straw cups. You may want to try one of those. They're cheap too and BPA free.

Cash wouldn't take anything but the born free sippy with the soft spout. It's so much like a bottle but totally a sippy. He still drinks milk from it.

For water i use the gerber cheapies. lol I don't know what they're called.

I voted yes try putting something better in the sippy & put water in the bottle. Our Pedi told us to put formula/milk/juice in the sippy cup so he would learn that it's good stuff too, not just plain water all the time 8)

*lurking*

I bought all kinds of Sippys and the only one Ben will drink out of is the
cheapo Take and Toss sippys and they don't have a valve.

Thanks so much girls! I'll def. try the munchkin ones, they look so easy to hold. I'm not in a super hurry to get rid of the bottle but the thing is he's not drinking out of the sippy himself yet and I want to atleast accomplish that before we tackle getting rid of the bottle.

Plus I'm so tired of washing bottles :lol: PLUS my sister was on the bottle until she was 4 so that's always in the back of my mind.
