  • Stick with the cup, and consider yourself lucky for bypassing the "goodbye bottle battle" that some kids have a hard time with.

  • If she uses the cup I say stick with it. You'll be a step ahead and won't have to go from bottle to cup.

  • I say stick with the cup my oldest now 5 didn't like bottles either she drank them until 3.5 minths then would choose cup over bottle at 9 months she took herself completely off a bottle and onto a cup herself. My youngest now 2.5 however wouldn't take herself on a bottle until she was 13 months old

  • If she likes the cup let her have them. it is easier to keep them on a sippy cup and not have to get them to stop taking a bottle.
