My baby is 11 months, we are trying to get rid of the bottle and just use sippy cups. He drinks juice and water fine but he refuses to drink formula from a sippy. We tried regular milk a few times and he hates it. Any suggestions?

  • Give the bottle only at bedtime with only water. Might take a couple of times but eventually won't want it anymore. Try a sippy cup without a lid or use one of the cups with a straw. Thats what I did with mine. Hope it works for you :)

  • cold turkey did it for me, my super picky middle son had big troubles with the cup but when i went cold turkey it only took one day for him to get used to it.
