How do you get your child to give up the bottle when all he says is "ba ba" every time you walk inthe kitchen. It's so cute and I think this transition willbe harder onme than him.

My son Transitioned pretty easy. I use sippy cups with straws, he seemed to like that and they are pretty close to a bottle. He still calles his sippy cup bottle but we just correct him and tell him its a cup. Good Luck!!

My son also loves his bottle. But, I figure, What's the rush to going to the sippy anyway if it makes him happy? So, I don't push the issue.



I am choosing my battles.

haha..wow i feel the same way. i just started trying to get her off the bottle. i'm just giving her a sippy cup with milk..and if she doesn't wanna drink it..then she doesn't. i'm hoping eventually she'll get the picture. but if you keep giving it to him he will never do it. but i'm sad--i'll never see her drinking a bottle again..its like she's grown up. haha. but once they see that you're not caving they'll slowly start drinking it...hopefully!!!

We were using the Avent bottles, and at a year I switched to the Avent sippy spout. I put those on the regular bottles, so that my daughter was familiar with the "look". After using that solely for a couple weeks, I introduced  other sippys. She'll drink from a variety of them now.

I started using Nuby sippy cups for most of his milk. Only offering a bottle for the last nightime milk.The spouts are more like a bottle. After a about two weeks, I would only offer the sippy cups and saved the Nuby ones for the night time and used the regular sippy cups during the day.  That is what worked for us.
