When my 12 month old uses a sippy cup she spits whatever she is drinking out, what should I do?

She doesn't have a bottle anymore and is having a hard time with it. Everytime she drinks something out of her sippy cup she just lets it leak down the front of her.

Oops I just read she doesn’t use bottles, I guess just try a different sippy. The avent trainer cups have a slow flow

My youngest did this until about 2 months ago. She would chew on the end of the cup and the water would just run all over her. Eventually she will figure out that she can drink it :) Perhaps try a straw cup. My daughter likes her straw cup better and now won't drink from a sippy cup.

Oh on :) lol

Have you tried a straw or a different type of sippy? This might help. I would take away bottles (If you use them). Then she might get serious about drinking from a sippy instead of playing with it.
