I have twin girls that will be 9 months old on may 11th. I have been trying sippy cups since they were 6 months and they will not drink from them. I have tried mutiple kinds like Nuby, playtex, and Advent. I have tried juice, milk, water, and baby yogurt drinks. They won't take any of it.

We are traveling to Hawaii next month and its an 8 hour flight and was really hoping they would take them by then.

Any tips or advice?????

I think it is normal that they aren't using the cup for nourishment yet. I wanted my twins to take the cup because we were flying as well (they are 11mo.). I bought practically every sippy cup on the market. Nothing. Then I tried a straw cup made by playschool for 6+mo. The love it...I am nursing them so I mix the Yo Baby with breastmilk. Maybe try that with formula. Good luck.
