Okay so My son will be 1 in a week and I have been trying to give him a sippy cup since he was six months old. He will have nothing to do with it. I have try every kind. So today I decide to just do away with the bottles. Still not having the sippy cup. he will drink out of it without the lid but has soon as i put it back on he freaks out. I don't know what to do. PLEASE HELP.

Is there a medical reason for getting rid of the bottle? If not, let him have the bottle. Why torture yourself and him over something he will want less and less in time. And if this is a big deal and you feel you have to get rid of it, try again in 6 months. Good luck =)

he is already off formula. I just don't want him to be stuck on the bottle until he is like 5. thanks for the help. he did let me give him the sippy cup with the hard top but i had to hold it for him and it was only for a lil bit.

He is kind of young for that. If he drinks without the lid, offer it w/out the lid. He will learn not to spill. You might try different styles?

Just leave the lid off for now. Sounds like he's beyond his years.
Maybe he just hates the texture or something of the lid......IDK.
