Is your LO still on a bottle or a sippy cup?!

My 13 month old is still on a bottle. I've been trying since 11 months to get her off her bottle. Still nothing. She'd rather dehydrated herself -_____- I've tried multiple sippy cups. I've put her bottles "outta sight, outta mind" yeah right! I don't want a 2 year old with a bottle lol

  • Well my baby is still on bottles but as soon as she can sit up unassisted I will switch her to a sippy cup. Good luck honestly yours will drink from a cup if you stop giving her bottles.just chuck em whe will figure it out

  • My kids are 6 and 9 now, so obviously no.
    My oldest never had a bottle, and was off the sippy cup around 3 years old.
    My youngest never had a bottle or sippy cup. He went straight from boob to straw or open cup.

  • DD weaned herself off the bottle around 20 months. And was done with sippies by 28 months. She is 3 and doing well.

  • Nope but they are 3 and 5. My 3 year old threw his away at 16ish months old. My 5 year old didn't throw his away until he was 2.5 YEARS old. I had mine till I was 4.

  • mine is still on a sippy because spills with a regular cup. she just not ready yet for a regular cup. she has been off the bottle for awhile but i had to push for that my parents kept on giving it to her. grandparents can be worse then kids.
