So my Doctor is wanting me to try and have my son who is 8 1/2 months old to start using a sippy cup. I've been trying this since he was 6 months and he absolutely hates it; he is just in love with his bottle. I've tried putting formula, juice, and water in his sippy, all of which fail. I'm starting to get frustrated as he'll put it in his mouth then refuse it. I've also tried giving him his sippy when his appetite is aimed at milk hoping he'll be so hungry he just decides to give up and use it...failed. The one's I've tried are Nuby's and he tends to take at least one sip and then chews it. I've also tried harder ones and he can't figure those out. Should I give it a break and try again in another month or two, or should I keep trying?
