OK , I have totally had it with the sippy cup but my husband wont back me up at all with this.
My daughter will be 5 in January, she still drinks milk at night while she goes to sleep and a fue time a day.
She will be starting school this coming fall and I just want to get her off of it ASAP, its getting old and i don't want to get a call from the school saying to come pick her up because she is throwing a fit for milk!!!
I've tryed to get his grandmother to back me up about this but all she says is "its not hurting her, she loves it."
I took her off the bottle (with a fight) when she was 2 1/2 just to replace it with this damn cup.
We live an a duplex and if she doesn't get the cup she throws a royal fit and screams and hollers and sound like she is being killed!!!!!!
I mean, its so bad that if i heard sounds like that on the other side of the wall i would call the cops in fear of child abuse.
How can I get my husband to understand that this oral fixation is damaging her teeth and jaw and even her developmental skills?

So you don't want your daughter to drink milk period or from a sippy. She is going to throw a fit the first few nights that's what kids do and if the neighbor call the police tell them your daughter is throwing a fit because she wants her sippy cup. Get rid of the sippy and she'll get the point soon. We all had to stop the sippy sometime you don't see grown adults walking around drinking from sippy cups. So your daughter will learn like we all had to learn that she can no longer have the sippy because she's a big girl but she can have a cup of milk in a straw...something like that.
