My two year old is addicted to his cup!! Its always sitting in his mouth. He have his hand up and the cup sitting on it. He goes through shirts, because he slobs so much. He's about to turn 3. This can't be normal!!

DOES ANYBODY ELSE CHILD DO THIS??

The rule in my house is that drinks stay in the kitchen. They may go get a drink whenever they are thirsty, but the cup stays after the drink. I don't know if your son is still using a sippy or not, but if he is, now would be a good time to switch to a regular cup, and use this rule.
