It just became a battle of me outlasting him. I refused to give him one during hte day, but sippy cups are always available. Then he was waking up at night for a bottle and i finally decided i was done. After about threenights of only getting sippy cups he started sleeping through the night as well. It may seemrough but youjust have to outlast him. Mine also really likes to sip from a real cup, with help of course. He does quite well for being 16 months.

I would just get them out of the house. If they aren't there you won't be able to give into him and he will adjust. Also, we have some straw sippy cups that are no spill like the sippies. They are gerber brand. Then you have the convenience of the sippy and the straw like he likes!

Yes i tried the ones that look like a bottle but there more of a sippy cup he like the ones with the straws and we were doing so well for almost 2 weeks and then he got sick and now he again wants nothing to do with any of them.

Have you tried the nubby sippy cups. It feels more like a baby bottle nipple.

My son started to refuse to take the bottle or sippy cups once his brother was born. It was to the point he would only drink about an ounce a day. But we found that he would only take the sippy cups with the silicone spouts. Also he just started to like the kind with the straws.
