Sippy Cups 

Sippy cups should be used as a training tool from the bottle to a cup and should be discontinued by your childs first birthday. When using a sippy cup, mainly fill it with water.  Juice should be limited to mealtimes. Allowing a child to drink from a sippy cup throughout the day with sugary liquids (including milk, fruit juice, sports drinks, etc.) causes longer acid attacks on tooth enamel, resulting in cavities.
