6 Year Old Who Snores

No Sippy Cups?

So I've seen many questions with posters that state they do not/will not use sippy cups for their toddlers, and today's question got me wondering why. Personally, we never used the traditional "sippy" cup that has a lid and a valve (too much to wash and potentially lose), but introduced the kind with just a lid around 8 months. My son was EBF, and didn't get bottles much so it was either water in a cup or breastmilk. Around 2.5 he was trustworthy enough to lose the cups with lids and go to regular cups with only an occasional accident. ...
