My son is 1, just turned a year old a few weeks ago. Everyone is suggesting the straw cups vs regular sippy cups. I just wanted to know why they were successful for everyone else? Or how? My son doesn't know how to suck from a straw..... he throws the cup cause he doesn't know how to use it. Any ways to teach him maybe?

I taught DD by using one myself and I used the straw like a dropper. My finger covered the one end and she had to suck to make it come out, after that she figured the cup out pretty quickly.

I used a no spill straw cup at about seven months. He had some problems with it so I took the no spill part out and he figured it out in a day. After a couple days I replaced the part.

Elliot will only drink out of straw sippys, the nuk brand is good. She didnt figure out a straw until a good 12 months! I think she just watched me do it and slowly figured it out
