  • DS had his sippy cup until I finally took them away right before his 3rd birthday. He knew how to drink from a regular cup and how to drink from a straw. He just refused to do so if the sippy was around. So I prepared him for a few days telling him that that he was a big boy now and the sippys were going to go away to baby's who needed them. Then I just took them and didn't look back. DD may not like it for a day or so but she will be fine.

    Good Lucki!

  • If you think its time then its time.....get one of the playtex straw cups and let her decorate it or put pictures of her favorite characters in it,she will forget all about her old sippy cups!
