I would honestly only give the option of a sippy. He/she knows you will give it to them eventually which is why they fight. If they want it bad enough they will take it! :woman_shrugging:t2:

Just do not give them the bottle. Super simple. Let them cry. A day or 2 is all it takes. Its just on the parent to not give in.

Put only water in the bottle. Put milk,juice,etc in the cup. Worked great on all 3 of mine.

Honestly just take them away and only have sippy cups. He will use them. He may cry and throw a fit but he will be just fine. Just harder on the parent to hear the crying and fits then on the child. Lol I went throw it. It sucks but I learned.

I just took away the option, my 16 month old cried for about three hours and it was over

Take it cold turkey. Get a transitional cup…took my kids on their 1st Bday and they were fine

Be consistent. I started with the soft tip sippy cups then moved her to the harder tips.

Try a regular cup? My 2 year old drinks from a regular cup…or try different sippies…maybe he will like a different type

One dont give him the bottle it’s hard but he’ll get use to it and two have tou thought of trying a cup witha straw instead both my daughters hated regular sippy cups when they first got off the bottle but would always use a straw. He’ll get it either way but it takes time. Good luck momma!

Get the harder plastic tip ones my daughter would chew through the soft rubber ones

I threw all my daughters bottles away when she turned a year old and gave her this. She took it good.

Try a transitioning cup, worked for me😊

Take it away completely. Try straw cups or soft top sippy cups…
