Health Tip: Transitioning From Bottle to Training Cup

Which types are recommended?

(HealthDay News) -- Between your child's first and second birthday, it's time to transition from a baby bottle to a cup. This teaches your child the important skill of sipping, versus sucking.

The American Dental Association suggests these types of cup:

  • Cup with lid that screws on or snaps on. Cup should have a spout without a valve.
  • Cup with two handles designed for training young children.
  • Cup with a weighted base to prevent tipping and spilling.
