8 months sipping water using straw
Do you know how i can train my 8 months baby to sip water using straw? I bought the straw cup from pigeon. Any steps?
They will just get it one day. We spoon fed our baby for quite a long time cos he couldnt use the straw, until my husband decided to tease him with a packet drink (sugar free crysanthemum) and suddenly he took a sip. Then from then on he just took to the straw cup.Read more

Hi how old is your baby? Babies are individuals and their development will be different so don't worry too much and just keep trying. Usually babies learn how to suck from straws from 8 months onwards, some faster and some slower. I try to mimick sucking action when my gal is sucking from the straw so that she can imitate me. I also use the brand BBall straw cup which has a weighted ball for easier sucking of water as the ball will follow where the water is. Try to do different actions with your mouth and face when you are playing with your baby as they like to imitate us and this will encourage them to explore more and enhance their oral developmentAnonymous
