I have a 2 1/2 year old son. He refuses to use a sippy cup. He will use the learner sippy cups that have the soft nipples on them. For 2 full weeks, my husband and I would not give him the learner cup and only offered him sippy cups. He threw temper tantrums and we figured after a while he would get thirsty and just have a drink out of it. This was not the case, he was angry and refused the sippy cup. I feel terrible for doing this to him. Also I can't get him to go to bed with out having his soy milk before bed. This is bad for his teeth because soy milk has more sugar then regular milk. He is allergic to milk. I know that it is a comforting thing for him but I also don't want it to affect his teeth in a bad way.
Does anyone have any suggestions for either of these issues?
