When you are looking to introduce your child to a cup after the breast or bottle, a sippy cup is fine for a short period but we would recommend going straight to a straw cup if you can. The occasional use of a sippy cup is nothing to worry about, but it’s easy to become dependent on anything that makes a parent’s life easier. Parenting experts say babies should not drink from a sippy cup frequently over a prolonged period but a few months is fine. This is another reason the sippy cup adapter pack is ideal for a short period of time.
Pediatrician Dr. Nimali Fernando, co-author of Raising a Healthy Happy Eater, says: “Sippy cups encourage babies to do just that, to sip. But constant sipping on anything but water isn’t good for the health of a baby’s new teeth. Acid from the drink may wear down the enamel and demineralize teeth, leading to tooth decay. I highly recommend this article from the USA which covers off baby tooth decay, tongue position, swallowing patterns, speech, teeth and other important developmental milestones that can be affected by the choice of a sippy cup or straw cup for your toddler.
If you need to offer a sippy cup on occasion just for your sanity, it’s fine! It is only repeated use that can create potential problems with their palette as the article explains.
