I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how I can get my 12 month old to drink milk from a sippy cup. I offer milk in a sippy cup at every meal but my twin boys will only take a few sips here and there. They have been drinking water from a sippy cup since they were 6 months without a problem but won't take much milk or any other type of liquids such as juice, V8, etc.
They like to drink water with meals. They are not interested in drinking milk with their meals at this time. They usually get their milk about 45-60 minutes after their meal (approx. 30 minutes prior to their naps) and will drink 5-6.5 oz.
At what point will they drink their milk with meals. How did you transition from offering their bottles after meals to with meals (by using a sippy cup)?
Any suggestions are welcome.
