Help with switching from bottle to sippy/straw cup for milk when baby is using sippy for water just fine!

My daughter switched to milk out of the bottle (from formula) just fine at 1 year, but refuses to drink milk from anything but the bottle now that i'm trying to convert her to a sippy cup or straw cup. She'll drink water out of a sippy or straw cup so I feel like she must not like the taste of the milk (since the bottle sends it further back in her mouth...less taste). Anyone else had this problem? Solutions????

My 15 month old daughter is the same...she'll only drink milk from a bottle, but will drink water from her sippy/straw cup. My son, whose 3, was the same way. By age 2 he was only drinking from a sippy/straw cup - milk & water. It all comes in time. Just continue to offer her the milk in the sippy cup, she may surprise you one day & drink it!! Good luck!!!

My daughter is the same, only drinks milk from bottle but will drink water out of sippy, straw or normal cup. I have just been trying to always offer the milk in sippy first and she is slowly starting to drink a bit more out of it each time but still not enough so I am still letting her have bottle. Would love any suggestions anyone else has
