  • Try a regular cup. Some babies pick it up really quickly. He sees you drinking out of regular cups so he might be more inclined to try. It'll be messy at first, but you might be surprised.

    Good Luck

  • Offer juice/milk in the cup - if he insists on the bottle, give it to him with water in it. my DS turned one in Feb, we're still fighting the bottle battle. Our problem is that cups or bottles - if he doesn't want it, he will pour it on the floor and finger paint in it.

  • I feel your pain. My son didn't take to a sippy cup until he was probably 15 months old. I just had to keep trying. I must have bought 10 different brands of cups. The one that he likes the best is Nuby. Good luck and stay strong!
