Brinlyn really only takes the bottle during her nap time and an hour before bedtime and during her sleep time. I've tried to give her sippy cups with milk and she just will not take them what so ever. Should i just throw all bottles away and thats that????? HELP

I used the transition sippy cups. You know, the ones with the soft tops. My son was ok with using these, cuz they were soft, but it made me feel like we were one step closer to droping bottles all together.

Have you tried the sippy cups with the soft silicone type spout? I think that makes for an easier transition since it is a similar feel to a bottle nipple.

Quoting Jen:

My daughter is 2years 3 months, and she has a bottle at bed (occasionaly a cup but she doesn't drink much then). I don't see the rush, I don't believe a sippy cup can be considerably better for her teeth, so I will wait until she is old enough to decide for herself or when she has some reasoning skills.

Humans are supposed to breastfeed until they lose the desire, or ability to obtain milk from sucking due to jaw allignment, this is usually between 2-7, (why baby teeth are called milk teeth). Sucking is soothing, and triggers receptors that produce calming hormones. Breastfeeding would be ideal, but a bottle for sleeptime I don't think is a huge sin and shouldn't be stopped immediately asap as most may say.


SEE I ACTUALLY THINK THE SAME THING AND MY MOTHER SAID THAT AS WELL, BUT SHES SO GOOD TO JUST TAKE THE BOTTLE DURING SLEEP TIME. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE INPUT!

Quoting CANDI :

WHAT I DID WITH MY KIDS WAS GIVE THEM A SIPPY CUP AND TELL THEM THAT BIG GIRLS USE CUPS. BABIES USE BOTTLES. ASK HER IF SHE'S A BIG GIRL AND IF SHE SAYS YES THEN TELL HER TO PUT HER BOTTLE IN THE GARBAGE. KEEP THIS UP AND SHE WILL GIVE THE BOTTLE UP WITH SOME FIGHT BUT WILL REALLY ENJOY THE BIG GIRL CUP. GOOD LUCK


THATS A GREAT IDEA, THANK YOU SO MUCH, IM STARTING THAT TONITE
