  • be persistent with the other cup. He'll eventually get the hang of it.

  • We too have a 12 month old and likes his sippy cup. I found that Walmart has one that is awesome. It is a Nuby sippy cup. It has a slicone sipper. It doesn't make it a mess and it is easy to sip from...Hope this helps!

  • Are you asking what you can do at night? If I were you, I would just cold turkey it.. He will cry for a few nights maybe, but he'll get over it. You might have to just let him cry it out.

  • Try the nuby ones. The are softer and more like the bottle.

  • If you have to have one, I'd recommend the nuby one too, but it's really not good for them to lay down with milk in their bottle at night. I guess you could put water in it and it he might decide he doesn't want it anyway. If it were me, I'd try to get rid of it, but you have to do what's right for you and your situation. Good luck.

  • Go the cold turkey route. Try getting a soft top sippy cup, fill it with water, and switch it out with the bottle. As soon as our son got his teeth in we started giving him water at night. He won't like it for the first few nights, but soon he will learn that he's not gonna get the milk during bedtime anymore. You might have to invest in some earplugs though, lol.
