I got my daughter to start drinking from regular cups when she was 2. I told her that she is a big girl now and she needs to drink like a big girl. I went and got her princess cups and she loved them. I would go get a big boy cup of what ever character he likes and see if that works. I hope this helped!

Let him pick out his own cup and perhaps add a straw. My 3 year old thinks it's a very big boy thing to be able to drink with a straw.

By 18months my daughter was on regular cups. what i did was get her favorite character or animal on a cup with a straw. And told her she was a big girl and this is a cup like mommies.

I went from sippy cups to regular cups with a straw, he didn't like the straw and started drinking straight from the cup.
