Help! Weaning out the bottle

Danielle - posted on 02/10/2011 ( no moms have responded yet )




I have an 11 month old little girl who I am trying to get rid of the bottle. She takes 3 bottles a day and has a sippy cup throughout the day with water. She does really good with the sippy cup since she was 6 months old. Over the past week I have tried to rid the lunch time bottle by putting her formula in the sippy cup but she will just take a few sucks and throw it away and want nothing to do with it. I try to encourage her to drink it but she will not!

For her sippy cups I have the nuby soft nipple with the handles. How have you weaned your baby off the bottle to sippy cups? Did you find a specific sippy cup worked best? I would like to have her on sippy cups by March. Has anyone tried to flavor their formula a little to entice their little one to drink formula out of a sippy cup? My husband and I were wanting to wait until after her bday (Mar 3) to switch to whole milk even though our doctor has said we can switch now. Do you think she is maybe ready to make the switch!?? HELP I am so confused on what to do!
