How to switch to a sippy cup?

Samantha - posted on 08/08/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




My fourteen month old is not taking well to the transition from bottle to sippy cup. She was doing well with one however, it closely resembled a bottle with a little plastic straw and kept leaking all over the place. Any ideas on how to ditch the bottle and what are good non leaking sippy cups? I'm desperate! :)

i tried all the cups, handles, funny lids, flip tops, my 2 year old would not have any of them, then i got a pack of 2 small blue beakers with pop on lids spout style with one hole. he was really happy with these basic ones, they were smaller so he colud hld them better. he still wont have his bedtime drink in anything other than a bottle, and because he has just turned 2 i want to get him off that. no clue how though!! ;) x

I liked the nubby ones that were a little softer when I tapered my little man off the bottles. They worked well I didn't find they leaked until they started to ware out. I think Gerber makes one like that too. Just make sure the soft nipple part is pulled through the hard plastic part correctly and when you screw the top part on it isn't cross threaded or it will leak.

HeyHey Try more of the straw cups my son is the same will only drink from a bottle and a straw cup. He's now 23mths and still will not touch a sippy cup if it doesnt have a straw. Try getting the Take n Toss straw cups or the Tomme Tippi Straw cup there good when it comes to the leak they dont leak unless there completly full. but when filling the take n toss ones your gonna have to remove the straw or the pressure of putting the lid back on will squirt out the straw otherwiswe there a really good cup. My son loves them... Goodluck :D
