Your baby has been sipping from a cup with your help for a long time but now he wants to hold the cup himself. His motor skills and hand eye coordination is developed enough to allow him to manage drinking form a cup all by himself. Drinking form a cup involves a lot of coordination and with regular practice your baby will master it.
What you need to know
There would be instances when your baby will spill the contents of the cup and spoil your lovely carpet. Be ready for it and do not let these minor accidents make you stop from letting your child practice. Always make sure that the liquid you out in the cup is not too hot.
