Quoting Jamie Horn:" Thanks ladies. My son will be 4 mons on feb 11th and he's acting interested in food the past 3 days or ... [snip!] ... I've also seen some sippy cups that says for 4 mons+ and didn't know if I should try it here soon. I appreciate the replies!"IMO the earlier you introduce a sippy cup the better. I waited until like 6 or 7 months with my oldest and it was so hard to get her off the bottle. As for solids the AAP recommends waiting up the baby is at least 6 months because their digestive tract needs to develop and they need to be able to digest the food. If you do decide to not wait I highly suggest using oatmeal or a whole grain like brown rice instead of the plain white rice cereal.

[snip!] ... better I love the NUK sippys that is the brand of bottles and pacis he uses so I may have to invest in one of the trainer cups."The NUK cups is what we started with and they were fantastic. My daughter was full off the bottle by 11 months and thats only because she got sick the week we took them away so I gave them back until she was over it. Also look into baby led weaning. I did the cereal and baby food with my first and BLW with my second. BLW was by far easier cheaper and I fully believe much healthier. This is a fantastic website for feeding babies no matter what method you go with. http://wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com/solids.htm
