Sippy cups: just water and juice, or do you let baby have formula/breast milk in them? I only use them for water and juice. Bottles are for formula. Not necessarily for everyone, it just seems "right" to me. I'm not sure why lol. A big reason is because she mostly plays with and chews on the sippy spout.

Have you switched from the infant carrier to the convertible style car seat yet? We have, and I miss that carrier so much! I got to dread it, because it got so heavy as she gained weight, but now I realize how easy it was to just snap it in and go without wrestling with her in the backseat becasue she's throwing a fit over being buckled up! She hasn't outgrown the carrier either in height or weight yet, and I'm crazily considering switching back for awhile!

We haven't tried sippy cups at all yet. To me they seem for water and juice, too.

We haven't moved to a convertible seat yet but we're really close. I'm pricing out models and deciding what to get. The weight of the infant seat is getting really hard on my back and I often just take her out of the seat to put her in an Ergo or stroller anyway, so I don't see any reason to wait on the convertible seat.

If he gets a sippy it's water only.

We switched to a convertible at 4 months.

Only water in a sippy for practice.

Waiting on the infant insert to arrive for our Britax (that I lost ) before we move Cole. He is sooo heavy in the infant carrier and my pregnant body can't take it anymore lol. Not to mention he's so tall his feet hang over.

Right now sippies are only for water but after his first birthday he will drink milk too. As for the convertable, he's been in one since birth. I hated the infant bucket with Allison, so I skipped it for JR.

No sippy cup yet. No juice or water yet.

We are still using the carry car seat. I need to start looking for a convertible the original plan was to reuse Madison's but I have learned more about car seats. Its going to be a huge fight though because my husband thinks the expiration dates are only because the company's that makes the car seats want you to buy a new one for each kid and he thinks I am just going along with it because I want something new.

We haven't started a sippy cup yet but when we do I just use water until he switches to cow's milk then I will put that in a sippy until he uses a regular cup.

Jacob is still in an infant carrier car seat. I think we changed Jackson over around 18 months which is when I might changed Jacob over. Jacob is still pretty small so he fits fine in the infant seat.
