  • My daughter was the same way I didn't force her I would just keep introducing it with milk and one day she surprised me and took it and never wanted milk in a bottle again. Just stay patient she will do it when she's ready.

  • Don't give her anything but milk in the cup and she will drink from it when she's thirsty. Once she drinks the milk, then start giving her water again. She won't dehydrate.
