How do I stop bottles n start slippery cups she is 16 months old.

Throw the bottles in the garbage, this will allow you to ensure that both you and her will stick to the change. Start off with one sippy cup, or buy a couple different brands if you have the funds available. (She may prefer a certain type of sippy cup.)

I know that at 16 months children do not have the language skills to communicate like an adult does but take the time to explain to your daughter in very simple words that there will be no more bottles, only sippy cups now and that this is a good thing that means she is becoming a big girl... Maybe even have a sippy cup party.

You could put a couple sippy cups in boxes and wrap them. Get a special treat and decorations. She will be SOOOO excited for her presents (the cups) that it will make her more keen on the idea :)
