I've been working with my 10 month old on holding her own bottles and learning the sippy for almost 4 months now and having a really hard time. With bottles, I'll lean back in the chair so she's kind of laying and then put her hands on the bottle, and she'll just let it go or pull her hands away when I take them, or play with the bottle. I've tried laying her down on a pillow because that's how my oldest learned, but that didn't work either, she just sat back up. With sippies, at first she actually did try, only couldn't tilt the cup so she was sucking air. Now, she either wants to just play with it or I have to put it in her mouth and she blows instead of sucks. I've tried removing the plastic piece inside so it'll flow faster and she'll know it's a drink, but still nothing.
Any other suggestions or different ways you got your little one to drink from a sippy or hold their own bottle?
