11 months old and done with bottle?

Okay, so my son hasn't taken his bottle in 2 days! i know he doesn't have an ear infection, because he's had several and he gets fussy and has a fever. i've given him his normal baby food and cereal mixed with formula. I also got him to drink some juice from a cup with no lid. But he won't drink from a sippy cup. Any more ideas?

  • Try the straw sippy cups. Get a variety of types - hard spouts, soft spouts, handles, no handles, straws, no straws - let him pick one.
    And yes, some kids self wean before the parents are ready.

    Just keep doing everything you can to get liquid into him. He can go days and days with no food. He can't go one day with no fluids.
