You can try from around 10 months but if your baby shows no signs of being ready there is no need to rush things.

Hi Single Dad
I gave my little one plastic cups to play with during bath time from the age of 9months, she is 11months now and she can kind of drink from them but still spills the water quite a bit, so as soon as your little one can hold and tilt a plastic cup I think you can start with the sippy cups, just make sure you buy the non-spill sippy cups ' cause everything might end up on the floor/carpet.
