Ryan is almost 8 months and we do water out of the sippy cup now, but he still doesn't want to hold it himself.

Yay! Serena didn't want the sippy cup but she used a straw until about a month ago, and now she's all about the sippy lol.

 Yeah for you both!! Sophia will be a yr old on the 17th & I want to get her completely off the bottle. She only takes a bedtime bottle right now. How did you handle the last bottle of the day?? I read that you could give them a snack before bed with their milk in a sippy cup. What things have you tried??

 I've also being slowly switching her over to cow's milk, but shes not too keen on the taste/temp of it (since she always liked her formula warm). Any ideas would be appreciated!!

I let her play with my cell phone, especially at night time, when i would give her, her sippy cup..shell hold her cup with one hand, and the cell phone on the other...and fall asleep on me like that, or where ever shes sleeping...basically bribing her lol!! but it was good..shes been using it all day..she just hates water in it..shell only take water in a grown up cup..so i guess she gets her way..

 

as for the whole cows milk, try mixing it, 4 ounces of formula and water and 4 ounces of real milk, run it under hot water for about 2 mins.. she most likely love it

My 10 month old will only chew on sippy's.  Any ideas?  We have the straw one, the nuby soft tip and the traditional.  He chews on them all and then throws them on the floor.  I don't think he gets it that he needs to suck.
