15 months from bottle to cuppy...help

my son is 15 months old and i want him just on the cuppy no more bottle... when did you change your little one over? we have gotten a few different kind of cuppys for him to use but he just makes a mess all over the place with the nuby ones... he takes a drink and then opens his mouth and the milk goes every where... is there a nother cuppy that might be slower or work better... how long did it take you to get your little one all the way switched over?

  • We threw away DD's bottles the weekend of her first birthday and the only time she didn't want to take the cup was just before a nap and before bed. But after a few days she got over it.

  • A child doesn't need milk or formula after 12 months. I'll hold cups of water for my toddler grandson and he will sip through a straw. We have an old-fashioned straw dispenser and he likes to pick the straw. No mess if you are holding the cup and it really doesn't matter since it is water.

  • Gaill--this post is about bottles not milk, stop your crusade already.

    ANYWAY, I took my daughter's bottle at 17 months on Christmas Eve---I took advantage of the craziness of the holiday. We also have the Disney princess sippy cups, I'm sure they have boy ones. They do not leak....in fact, I had to stick a fork in the opening because at first I couldn't get anything out.

  • Our son drinks mostly water, so he uses a Camelbak water bottle for that. He also uses a Foogo (it's a stainless steel cup with a straw), which I've seen people use for juice or other beverages, just make sure you can clean the straw well. Another we use is called Tilty, which has a slanted side, so they don't have to tip as far, and it's BPA-free. All of these are dishwasher safe.
