When my son turned 1 I got one of those cups that has those soft rubber straws, I filled it with formula and gave it to him. I made sure and gave it to him before he was hungry or thirsty. It took it, it took him a sec to figure out how to work the straw but he got it and when he realized what was in it, he took it and just walked off. That was it, no more bottle. Good luck!

I agree, go cold turkey. She will not let herself die of thirst, she will eventually take a cup. The sooner you do it the easier it will be. It may take a few days but it will get better. good luck!

The best way to solve that problem is just to throw them all out one day and just leave the cup somewhere she can see it, when she is thursty enough, she'll take it.

Also there is a cup that sorta looks like a bottle. the top sorta looks like a nipple and feels like one too when they drink outta it. Try one of those two and before you know it, she'll be off the bottle. My sone was the same way and that's how I got him off the bottle.

go cold turkey. throw all the bottles away and only offer the cup. when she knows that you mean it she'll drink from the cup. kids learn quickly, they are just stubborn.
