This is a little kiddo who is learning to drink out of an open cup. Surprisingly to most parents, there is no oral motor development stage for using a sippy cup. This is a convenience for us parents so that we don’t have to clean up spills. So don’t be afraid to try out open cups with your little one as they transition off the bottle. Just remember, while they are learning, only put as much liquid in as you are willing to clean up. You will also notice that he is wearing a cranial molding helmet to help reshape his head after torticollis created a flat spot along the back of his head.
