I'd like some advice from the more experienced moms!! My son is turning 1 in just 2 weeks, and he's actively refusing to give up his bottle. When he was about 6 months old, I started trying to teach him drink from a sippy cup or from a straw or regular cup. He loved to play with them, and was able to take a few sips on multiple occasions, but he just prefers his bottle, and I didn't push it (hoped he would catch on by himself). I've tried about 7 different cup styles, different drinks (milk, juice, water), I drink out one of them with each meal (trying to role-model). For the last 2 months, he's getting more stubborn about it - refusing to take sips from anything besides his bottle and becoming clearly annoyed when I try to encourage him to take a sip . Since he's turning 1 soon, I'm wondering if I should take a just take a cold-turkey approach and just take away his bottle now, before he gets even more stubborn/attached.
