We are attempting to transition from bottles to using a sippy cup --- but Keira will not have it. She will take water fine from any type of sippy cup, and she's been pretty good with them for several months now. But she screams and cries if you offer her formula or milk in a sippy cup - she will only take it in a bottle . . . no matter how hungry she is it seems. I did try our Nuby sippy cup which has a more bottle like spout to it, and she took a little bit ouf of it, but then pushed it away and cried until she got the milk in her bottle. I am not sure what to do to help transition her off of using the bottle. I am afraid to only offer her the sippy cup as then she probably won't get enough liquids (besides being one unhappy girl), but on the other hand we don't want to keep "giving in" and giving her the bottle like she wants . . . What to do!
