How do I get Marquel to quit sucking on his sippy cup. I mean it's o.k. at meal times but he insists on having it all day. He eat, sleeps and sometimes plays with his sippy cup. He has to have it and at that he'll only drink it if it's at least half full which is making potty traing even harder considering drinking so much is making him urine alot. What can I do?

okay I do not get it.. but why do you let him have the cup .. when its not meals??? I mean.. you are the mom rigth.. so take it away from him. if he fusses.. ohh well he will get over it.. pretty fast. I have a simular problame with my baby and her pasifier..but I take it away.. and there you go.. not to hard.. but take it away.. and only give it to him when he has meal. I do not really belive to much in the sippy cups.. I started lettting my kids.. drink out of a cup.. really early like 9 monts.. and my girl now who is 1,5 drinks by her self with a cup.. I do have the sippyes too but we only use them when we are really afraid that the spill can break someting.. like in the car.. on a special place where they have carpet that can get brocken by the spill

SO be the mom and take it away.. you should be the one that decides in my opinion..

He likes his milk, and juice in his cup. So maybe ill try puttin water in there, since he doesnt like water, or jus leave it empty except for meal times!

Leonie takes her sippy cup every where with her as well lol strangley only when there is drink in it though, if its empty she forgets about it so I just leave her to forget then take it away :)

my doctor suggested putting something that doesnt taste as good in my daughter's bottle to ween her from the bottle I would assume it'd do the same for the sippy cup. what are you putting in the sippy cup?
