my mom told me to put something to drink in the bottles that my daughter didn't like and what she DID like into the sippy cups. Didn't take her long to look at the bottles like they were poison! lol. Then she loved her sippy cups. We then had to "lose the lids" uh oh. :) and they just became cups.

ohhhh i hear you!! lol... my nearly 3yo hated going from bottles to sippy cups to!! and it's a process but she will get there!! Explain to her that she is a big girl now and that big girls drink out of sippy cups not bottles ..if she does drink out of it praise her ... when getting her a drink tell her your geting it to put in a siippy cup and if she drinks out of the sippy cup tell her you'll give her a treat!! praise and use of treats i found worked well ,along with the explaining that she's a big girl now and dont'es need bottles anymore which is what i done with ym 3yo it took him a while to,and he went through a stage of goign back to the bottles buut she'll get there as did logan good luck!

i had a really hard time getting my daughter to take a sippy cup too! i found that she loved to drink from a snap top lid, like the ones the put on water bottles. i started filling that water bottle with more water and juice and she quickly transitioned to sippy cups after that! im still fighting the milk though! she refuses her milk in sippy cups or regular cups!
