  • Put the babies favorite drink in the cup and the babies least favorite in a bottle. After they test the two...they should choose the cup. good luck

  • there are cups out there made by Nuby that have a soft nipple like top that are a good transition from bottle to sippy cup.

  • i did this and my dr told me about it actually. I got a cup and would let the kids play with it learn what to do with it. then when i found a cup they liked I filled it, they started using it. good luck!!

  • Give them their milk or juice out of a cup whenever you drink because they imitate what you do.

  • do like i did with Allanah. Start giving her the cup and no bottle. He might throw afit but if he gets thirsty enough he'll drink it.
