  • take him shopping and let him pick out the cup he wants, he will be more likely to drink from it then.

  • both my kids were like that and so with my oldest we just went straight to a regular cup and she was fine. yea we had some messes but she wasnt allowed out of the kitchen or away from the table with a drink so it worked out well. my other one i got the nuk sippys and she loved those because it felt soft and almost like a nipple and we did that for a while then moved to her favorite sippy which is a playtex. (i hate it because she always drops it on my foot and it hurts like crazy.)

  • My oldest DD would drink out of a sippy with a straw. Have you tried one like that yet. I could get her to drink out of the tummy tickler sippies also. They come premade with juice in them and then you can reuse them. You can find them in the juice isle. I didn't have a problem with them leaking.

  • The only thing that worked for me was just to keep giving it to them. I was so upset doing it at first because my daughter REFUSED and everyone kept telling me when she gets thirsty she will drink out of it just keep giving it to her. So I finally did it and within a couple days she was fine. She would take a drink here and there the 1st couple days when she would get thirsty and then she wanted it all the time. :) Good Luck!!

  • I found some cups at walmart that my son drinks out of and they don't leak. They are hourglass shaped and clear. The straw is part of the lid and it does not fold down. Mighty Grip 10oz straw cup by Munchkin They are dishwasher safe and are 5.99 for two
