  • I would just try using a regular cup....i did with my first child....but she never had a bottle either.....But honey there is no need to worry about it....babies are babies and there should be no rush on their learning things like this, as my sister always would tell me, "don't worry about it, by the time they graduate high school they'll be just fine and know!"

  • I tried every sippy cup off the shelf as well with my DD, then went to dollar tree of all places and bought some of those tiny sippies with no flow regulator. What do you know; my DD loves them. She also drinks really well from the 16 oz bottled waters. I guess it makes her feel like a big girl.

  • We had no luck with the usual sippies. We tried the ones with the straws...Nuby...I think...and he loves those!!! He actually preferred them over his bottle. He also likes just drinking from a regular cup...we have to hold it obviously.
