We've been trying to get my daughter, now 15 months, off of the bottle for some time. I quit cold turkey for 3 days, but she just refuses milk in anything other than her bottle. After getting a cup thrown at my face too many times, I gave up and decided to give her more time. But running through Walmart the other day, I saw this new cup by Avent. There's no sipping device, so they don't have to suck. They can sip from all around the cup. There is a lock position for travel, but while she has the cup, she has to be sitting and supervised. I started with water, which she likes to drink from anything--straw, sippy, bottle, cup. She learned this new cup in less than a day, and so I did it. I put MILK in it. And she CHUGGED IT!!!!
Thanks for celebrating with me!! We'll see how long this lasts. But here is the cup if you are interested in trying it out!
