Try when giving juice only give it in a sippy cup. Never in a bottle. Once she gets used to this she may switch easier over to he bottle. This is what we did with our son. We also ony put whole milk in a sippy and his formula in a bottle. So all the good stuff came from teh sippy cup. just a suggestion. Every child is different though. I am sure you will figure out something that works for him

I agree with the moms above. Try some different sippy cups. The important thing to remember is when he gets thirsty, he will drink from whatever you give him. He is not going to starve or waste away if he has a rough couple of days. Once you start, do not go back to the bottle because that only shows him he can get what he wants if he works you long enough. Backward progress is not progress. Hope everything works out for you.

try the nuk sippy cup, they are very much like a bottle, and have two perfect size handles.

My son will only take the Munchkin sippy cups because they have a soft spout.

with out going broke, try getting sippy cups that look similar to a bottle, once he gets use to it, move on until you he eventually uses a regular cup. don't throw out the bottles but tell him that bottles are for babies and babies need his bottles and do that for each cup that he graduates with. some times it takes just pulling them away while he is sleeping but try to have him put them into a box or bag to give to the babies. don't let him control you or manipulate you, be strong, your not hurting him.

Hello, I finally was able to strip the bottle from my daughters hand by moving her onto a Take-N-Toss Sippy cup, some have soft tips and some dont. Then, any sippy cup with a design on it or a straw in it (one that folds down) works great too! It wasn't easy for bed/nap time but we made it through, and you will too!

He may not be ready. But you can try sippy cups that have a soft end (kinda like a bottle). A friend of mine would drink from it first then ask her daughter if she wanted some and hand her the cup. I hope this helps....
