  • Have your tired skipping the sippy and trying a straw? What about a soft spout sippy?

  • well, my son did well on this one


    This is a good straw option


    The other thing would be to wean slowly.  Offer a cup at snack every day until he will do that.  Then lunch and a snack, then breakfast, the dinner, making a bed time the last one.
