I have tried loads of different types of cups and different juices and water but she refuses to use a cup and will only take the bottle. I never had this problem with my other children

Try putting a tiny bit of something sweet on the dippy part. Like chocolate syrup, or honey. Something she would like. I'm not sure if it will work, but hey it's worth a try!

Does she drink milk? With all of my kids (4) I had to ditch the bottle cold turkey and go straight to a cup. My 3 boys all went straight to a hard spout cup, but my daughter needed the soft spout kind for awhile. Once she figures out what to do, she'll be fine. Sucking from a cup is a lot different than sucking from a bottle, so she just needs some practice.
