  • You could also try drinking out of one yourself. I know it sounds silly but they always want to do what you're doing. If you make it look like its great, he might want to follow your lead.

  • Try a different one. We ended up going to the Nuby cup after trying about 5 different ones with the oldest. The other two went right for the same cup.

    We started by holding their hands on the cup and tipping it, then squeezing a bit of their formula into their mouths through the spout (they were only 6 months so still on formula). Once they realized what would come out of there, it was just about helping them learn to hold it (they weren't holding their bottles at that age) and then teaching them to tip it up. It took about 2 weeks.

  • nuby has a pack of cups that have bottle nipples and sippy ones. try that. start out with the normal bottle nipple and after a week or two try putting the sippy nipple on and see what her does. they are the 10oz 3 Stage Wide Neck Feeding System. Here is a link for an example of it.
    might help for him to be use to the cup as a bottle then switch it to the sipper lid....

  • Same problem here, I finally got my baby to use the Gerber Sippy cup with a soft spout.
