Learning to drink from an open cup
From about 6 months, your child can start to learn how to drink from an open cup. This will take some getting used to as it is completely different to drinking from a baby bottle, spout cup, straw cup or 360 degrees cup.
Tip: Start practising with the practice training cup early on to improve motor skills. For example, when your child can sit up unaided in the bath. And remember: practice makes perfect.
