My ds is 1. He bfs and eats table food. We want to start weening very soon. The problem is he refuses a bottle or sippy. Absolutely will not take either. How in the hell do I get him to drink something?

Cup? My 11mo old is the same way. I'm fine with bf til she's almost 2 or even 2. But she will drink from a cup sometimes if I'm not around. I'd think if you take the breast away he'll drink from a cup or straw even. You might have to hold your finger on one end and dump the liquid into his mouth with the straw at first though.

I've never been away from him, but he shakes his head when you get near him with something to drink lol

Straw might work.

My DS refused a bottle and we ended up teaching him to drink with a straw first. I remember my DH squeezing a juice box so he realized how it worked. Then we were able to progress to sippy cup and glass.
