How did you

get your 10 month old to drink from a sippy? I have tried everything.....and every TYPE of sippy ever made....and she hates all of them. And if she does start to drink from it...with in a couple days she acts like she has forgotten how.

  • All you can do is keep offering it to her. You might remove the spill proof valve so liquid comes out more easily. Yeah, it'll be messy.

  • try a straw cup. My son learned to drink from a straw when he was 7 or 8 months. I started by putting my finger over the top and he would get a taste and want more so he kind of taught himself to do it. Now he still hates sippies so we use a straw cup I believe it is Munchkin brand from walmart. He doesn't have to suck too hard to get it out and it doesn't spill.

  • With my grandson I just use a regular cup and bendy straw and hold the cup.

  • just keep trying with her or try the cup above with a straw. i just offered a sippy cup to my 7 month old, and she tries using it but hasnt really gotten the hang of it, and makes a mess. but i know i have to keep offering it to her to give her the opportunity to learn how.

  • My son would only use a cup with a gel straw. He loved those.

  • I had the same problem with my son at about that age. I just kept giving it to him and he finally figured it out and loves it now (he's 13 mos)
