I know there are some moms on here who skipped the sippy cup and went to regular cup and I'd like some advice. We've given Savannah regular cups before (or a sippy with no lid) and she does pretty well except for a few things. She will tilt the cup back too far and too much liquid comes out. I know that it has to do with the way she gets liquid out of the sippy, but how do I get her not to do it? Do I just let her do it and deal with the mess until she gets the hang of it or wait until she can control it better? The other thing is that she will tilt the cup not realizing that it will pour out if she does so. How do I correct this? Also do I get rid of all the sippies and only use a regular cup or do we wean by first pulling out the no spill valves and then going to regular cups? She even tilts too much with a straw cup. I'd like to get an idea of what everyone else is doing. Thanks.
