My little boy has been pushing his bottles away, and actually trying to eat food. This is awesome, as I've been working on that for months and months in therapy and at home. My concern for a while was that he wasn't getting enough calories, or liquid. But just recently, he has started actually drinking from a sippy cup :) He has been absolutely refusing until now. I got him to drink almost a full sippy of V8 a few days ago, and he's happy sipping water. I do wish he would drink something with calories, but it's a step in the right direction :)

Not sure, right now he's getting nearly all his nutrition through bottles, so we haven't tried that yet :)

That's what he drinks in his bottles, actually. 18-24 oz per day. So food calories are a bonus, but obviously what we're trying to get him to take more of :)
