Pediatricians recommend weaning your baby from bottle and switching to a cup at approximately 12 mo old to support appropriate oral motor skill development. Transitioning from bottle to cup allows your baby to exercise his/her face muscles (lips and jaw), tongue, and soft palate, all of which are connected to speech and feeding. One of the challenges to a baby at this transition stage is the fear of losing his/her favorite bottle, his/her “safety blanket”. The Olababy Soft Spout and Straw lid fit all Gentlebottles and turn the favorite bottle into a sippy or a straw cup to practice new drinking skills and encourage transition away from the bottle.
