my baby is coming up to 6 months old and when i was in boots the other day there were cups from 3 months should i be tryin to use a cup instead of a bottle for his drinks?
My daughter is almost 1 and we've used a beaker with her from about 4 months, she now feeds herself with the trainer cups (well, apart from her last bottle before bed at 5pm but she still feeds herself with that!) From about 6 months-recommended that they dont have juice out of bottles (as they hold too much sugar/sucrose solution around their gums/teeth) so now would be a great time to start as his hand eye coordination will start to improve.
i breastfed my little girl and gave her all juice out of a beaker ( she would never drink out of a bottle )she started having juice at around 6 months when i weaned her they do cups for newborn's as the lady i was in hospital with had one they do say its better for teeth to have a beaker not a bottle.
you can only try your son and see if he will drink from a cup dont worry if he wont it might take time for him to get use to it.
good luck. xx
