Okay so my little guy will drink water and juice from a sippy cup but not milk (formula). What are ways I can get him to transition??

About the NUBBY cups I wouldn't use them because of the soft top. It is silicone so it is very soft but the problem a couple of my friends who had kids same age as my first was that they were used to replace the bottle but still being used as a bottle with the same tilting and sucking idea as the bottle but that was them and I know every baby is different. My oldest who turns 3 in Jan didn't care for any sippy cup so I used the kiddy straw cups Playtex makes some pretty good ones and aren't expensive at all. I gave him milk throughout the day as if it were another juice slowly he warmed up to the idea of milk but took on the straw cups right away because it made him feel like a big boy drinking from a straw. Some dentist believe that straw cups are better because it allwos whatever they are drinking to be consumed passed the teeth minimizing the chance of early cavities. My little one that just turned 1 on Nov 2nd uses them and they've worked like a charm with him as well he's off the bottle and on cow's milk already.

Another thing you could do is buy those NUBBY sippy cups. They are sippy cups with soft tops. They work well and my daughter seems to like them. When we first gave her milk she didn't do very well. She would spit it out and make a very funny face. I just kept giving her the cup, let her play with it and not push her. Now we loves her milk (she's on whole milk) and drinks it three meals a day. Hope this helps!!

My friends daughter turned one today and she told me that her daughter only drinks out of the Born Free Blue $10 Training Cup AND she will only drink HOrizon Organic 2% milk-Nothing else.



A coworker told me to try the sippy cups with the straw that worked for her son too!
