well he has a cup 4 the days even drinks through a straw! its just getting him to bed without 1! I've always stuck to routine with him and now he hates change of any sort an he always goes strait off with his bottle i just put him down with it! do u think swapping it 4 a cup in bed would be better? trouble is getting one that doesn't leak!! he's 16 months now i just wouldn't know how to get him to sleep without it!

I had problems doing this with my first, it took 4 months to actually get her drinking out a sippy cup, I tried every brand cup going in the end I found one which she took to straight away, yes admittedly the teat looked like a bottle teat but it was alot different in shape more like what you get on cups these days once we got that sorted I got her tommy tippee cups which were great, she's now 2 years old and we're trying her without the lids on them lol yes it's kinda a wet job with that but It's going better than I thought. It's a big girls glass she calls it lol. Try weaning him off slowly like the other mum said I'm going to try this with my 2 month old when the time comes to switch over lol might be easier lol.

ween him off by slowly introducing a sippy cup. like for a week give him a bottle for breakfast and dinner but a sippy cup for lunch, then the next week a a sippy cup for breakfast and lunch but a bottle for dinner and so on....and show him fun much it is to have a "big boy cup" instead of a bottle. and remember to be consistant if he throws a fit give him some time and try again in a few days. what have you tried so far? i hope this helps
