(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.
