How did you all get your little one to take a sippy cup? My son wants nothing to do with it.

  • my daughter would like to drink from our cups so I got her a sippy cup, she would try to drink from it but that didn't work for awhile, so I would put Ice water in it and she would shake it and put it to her mouth, till she got better coordinated with it, keep giving it and they will eventually get it.

  • Keep at it momma he will get the hang of it. Put water in it and let him play with it show him he can put it to his mouth. In time he will get the hang of it. I do use the gerber ones cause they are like bottles and used the same way. I am having the same issues with teaching my DD how to drink from a straw.

  • I tricked my son into drinking out of it. I put water in his bottle and juice in his sippy cup. I let him get into the sucking motion by drinking the bottle and then quickly switched to the sippy cup while he was still in the sucking mode and he has been drinking out of one since and he was about 5 months then.
