I have always liked the idea of my son off the bottle before he is one. But I am having trouble with it, I introduced the sippie cup to him 3 months ago and he is still having trouble, he chocks on fluid as it comes out because the flow is too fast, and he does not like it. I really don't want him on the bottle past one, anyone have any ideas?

I agree with Ashley, Kristi. I would try a different brand for sure. My daughter is only 4 months old but when we get to that stage I will give the Nuks a try first because she has used nothing but Nuk bottles from birth when breastfeeding ended.

He is only on the 2 still, he has only been on the 2 for a couple of months because he could not handle the flow, I've used the playtex ones and the Gerber sippie cups.

Have you tried a different brand? My son likes the Playtex ones I have and the Nuby that my mom has. I put a TINY bit of juice with water, sometimes just water, and he drinks it. (not saying tp use juice, some are against it, it just makes a new taste out of a weird cup seem interesting!)

Good luck!

What kind of sippie are you trying to use?? How long has he been on a fast flow nipple from a bottle?
