  • Get him some training cups with straws. My son uses the Playtex kind. Nuby, Munchkin & some other brands make them too. The upper portion of the straw is made of silicone so it feels similar to a baby bottle nipple. They're also better for a kid's teeth than bottles or sippy cups.

  • Throw the bottle away... thats what I did. Just to avoid temptation of giving it to my kids. Out of sight, out of mind lol. If your nephew is familiar with sippy cups then it shouldnt be a big problem. He may cry for it for a day, then it will probably be forgotten. Atleast it was with my kids, they didnt worry about it after the next day. Good Luck!

  • Throw them out. Let the little brat cry all he wants, just dont give him a bottle.
