In brief: 6 months
Once your baby is able to sit up in a chair to feed, let him/her practice drinking with a cup.

In brief: It varies but...
When your child starts to make the switch from formula to starter food you can start to introduce a cup for liquids.
Remember not to stay with a "sippy cup" for too long as your child can develop an open bite in the front teeth. Best to try to move on to a regular cup when they are up to holding it.
