My son is 13 months and i have been offering him a sippy cup since he was 11 months...just threw it and made a mess. I then started giving him water in an open cup but I had to hold it or else he dumped it over. He would still gasp and start to act like he was choking on the water...i kept trying it a tiny bit. Now that he is eating 3 meals a day and sometimes a little snack, he doesnt want any milk except for at night. I have been offering it just lke before in an open cup but he wont have it and i waste at least 20 ounces a day doing this. I offer a bottle after meals if he wont drink out of the cup and usually he seems to full bc he wont have more than half an ounce.
Is there a better way? Should I just wait? should i just try the water throughout the day? Please give me some suggestions for this! all of my friends kids went "right to the cup" at 1 year so they are not really helping.
