When he sucks its causing pressure that why he wont take it much. To help them cut through quickly try a clean ice cold wash cloth. Tie a knot into. Also, they have this tooth cleaner tooth brush thing heres the link http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp... I bought one for my son and it's awesome for helping easy the pain.

I have tried a sippy cup and he just throws it and goes to the kitchen for his bottle just doesnt seem to take alot from it , and I have tried the straw that didnt work and ive tried leaving a sippy cup down for him with milk in it and he sips on it then throws aside :S but at lest i know its normal now , now I guess I gotta work with him getting off the bottle :(

Hey Krissy,
This is totally normal. My son did it for months because each molar came in one right after the other. At 12 months it's best to start weaning him off the bottle anyway and go to a sippy cup you'll be in luck with taking him off the bottle, it'll be easy. I switched from a bottle to a sippy cup when my son was teething and he drank so much more and he didn't even care to have a bottle again.

I'd try a sippy cup or a regular cup with a straw. You want to get your child off the actual bottle around this age and it looks like this may be easy for you!! Good luck!
