I started with a straw style sippy cup with juice and also letting her drink from juice boxes then moved to rubber spout cups then to plastic. i think starting with juice as a treat makes them WANT to drink then once there good it it then start with milk

when i took my son off the bottle, i started out by giving him a sippy cup during the day, and a bottle and bedtime and naptime. When he got adjusted to the sippy cup during the day, i started putting him to bed with it.(make sure it is leakproof) now he is 18 months and drinks from a cup with a straw during the day, but still goes to bed with a sippy cup. Hope that helps

how i got my son off the bottle was cutting the tip of the nipple off the bottel and giving it to him with a little bit of water in it so it wouldnt spill all over him. when i gave it to him, he noticed it was different and pushed it away. there was no fuss or anything and he took a sippy right after that. if you try this i hope it works for you too!!!

My biy is 2 and a Half and what I did was to give his milk in a cup with a rubber mouthpiece, I would also encourage him to dring out of my cup and praise him. Now he still askd for his bottle as he see's his baby brother with his, but I simply pass him his beaker and walk away when he is giving out and suprisingly he picks it up and uses it. When I first took the bottle from him I fased it out only giving it to him before bed and sometimes first thing in the morning. Hope this helps.
