Should I be worried if my 4yo DD doesn't want to drink from a cup w/o using a straw?

It's offered to her but she won't drink from it. We've even put water in the cup w/ the straws and her juice in the regular cup,,,,, nothing. Is this okay??

  • I hope so because my daughter doesn't like to drink out of a cup without a straw...I think it must be a phase...

  • I think it's ok -- just a stage. Tomorrow everything may be different!
