Hello! My eight month old has never been fond of bottles. I can not get him to drink out of sippy cups. I have tried pumping and the min always gets wasted. I have twitted several different bottles and sippy cups but all he does is bite them. Any tips others have tried?

My little boy is the same way, he loves sippy cups now but its because I put cold water or a splash of juice in it. He doesn't like to drink formula outta it

A breastfed on demand infant does not NEED anything to drink other than breast milk, so don't be worried about that.

My son was offered a sippy cup w/ water for the first time at 7 months... he had no clue what to do w/ it and just made a big wet mess on his tray. No big deal. I just offered it to him every once in a while and eventually he got the hang of it.
