i am definitely NOT saying i'm ready to give noah a sippy cup, but i just got an email from beech-nut saying a cup can be introduced at 6 or 7 months. is that right? noah's not really even holding his bottle by himself yet. i mean, he puts his hands on it, and sort of "held" it this mornign propped on a blanket while i pumped...
i definitely want to get him off the bottle at the appropriate time - i had a meeting yesterday for a child who's two and still gets two bottles a day and throws a tantrum if he doens't get it. (i was there because he's not talking and toe walking, not bc of the bottle thing.) that's totally behavioral and habit, and i don't think we'll let noah get to that point, but i don't know when it the right time. the beech-nut email totally threw me for a loop!
