I've been giving Mason a sippy cup of water with his meals for a couple months now. He loves it! This past week though he gets DD's sippy cup every chance he can and tries to gulp it down before I take it away. So last night I gave him his formula in a sippy cup instead of the bottle and he sucked it all right down.

Should I just stick with the cup then and try and drop the bottle all together? I'm thinking maybe I should.

What would you do?

If he likes the sippy I'd switch. Bottles aren't that great for teeth so it shouldn't hurt to switch.

I am a big believer that bottles are for formula (which is food), and cups are for drinks. With how old he is he shouldn't be on the formula much longer, so the bottles aren't going to hurt him. If you were planning on keeping him on the bottle for a long time then they could hurt his teeth, but it doesn't sound like that is what your plan is. Also sippy cups aren't any better for their teeth than bottles.

I've started dropping them also, and by the time we switch over to milk, I plan on using only sippies. I think if he's fine with that, as long as he's getting his formula, that's fine.

I say go for it. If he's decreasing the stress of moving away from bottles for you, then why fight it!
