My daughter just turned 1 last week. I have been trying to get her to take a sippy cup for the last few weeks, but have been unsuccessful. The main problem is that she doens't understand that she needs to tip up the cup to get to the liquid. She is still lying down when she drinks from a bottle. I've tried a few different kinds, including the cups with straws, but she just chews on the straw.
We were not in her life for the first 11 months (she's adopted) so I'm not sure if her first foster mother introduced cups at all. I just had my first child in August 08, so I'm a little lost on the regular development between 6 and 11 months, since I've never expierenced it.
Any sugguestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
