  • I don't know. my dd has 2, her juice one and her water one... I never thought it was an issue.. sorry I can't help. She also likes to eat with two forks sometimes?!

  • well i do that in general. one cup for milk, one cup for juice and then i have an extra cup for tea.
    makes it also easier for her to understand what she is having to drink.

    and our DD has two forks/spoon when she is eating. one for her, and one for me to help her ;)

  • If he thinks he needs to have both "on him" at all times I would say just give him a choice of one and stick to your guns about it. He may whine but he will get over it in a few days at most. If he only uses one at a time you're good. I have 2 sippy's in my house for my one year old... one only gets milk, the other only gets juice. I give him milk for bfast, nap and bedtime, and juice 2-3 times a day in between the milk times.

  • If you don't want him to have two, then don't give him two.

  • Hee hee! My daughter was sticking the straws from both her milk and water sippy cups in her mouth this morning. It's so funny when she tries to drink both at the same time. I'm not sure we understand what the problem is with having two cups?

  • I agree with corn muffen.

    Maybe it's just his thing.

    This isn't exactly the same thing, but it relates.
    When I'm eating. I have to clean my fork between each portion. I don't mix foods.
    If I go from milk to juice or water or vice versa, my glass has to be cleaned. I don't like even the faintest taste of the other.

    I do the same for my daughter. If she's had juice for a bit, and I just rinse out her sippy it still smells like juice. I know I wouldn't want to be tasting juice when I'm drinking milk.
