You gave a 5 month old juice? Oh boy.... Yeah, please stop the juice completely and do as the other ladies advised. Only water or formula in the cup.

Start with only water in the cup, period. Let him get his formula from the bottle, and let some time lapse between the ending the juice and switching to formula. After a few weeks, start putting a cup of formula down with his solid food (if he has solids) and encourage him to drink it. He will learn the cup either holds formula or water. He needs no juice at all and it is just a bad habit to create.

I suggest stopping the juice, it's not needed at all. Baby should only have formula or water.
