Are your kiddos using a sippy cup? What kind do you have/do they like?
Nathan's really hit and miss with the sippy but he's not drinking many bottles anymore so I am thinking of trying new sippy's with him with his formula/milk and he might like that better.

He drinks water from the take-n-toss sippys



A few months ago, I planned on buying him a fancy sippy, but every time just didn't wanna spent $10-15 on one, not knowing if he'll like it or not. Well, one day he got ahold of his sisters' take-n-toss sippy (they just use it to keep water next to their bed for the night), and drank like a pro! So that solved the problem. I only use it for water because they tip over & spill a little. He still takes 3 bottles of milk/day (and milk in his cereal), and then water in the sippys.

We just started using one with a straw and she is doing pretty good with it. We tried a couple regular ones and she couldn't figure it out. The problem with straw ones is that they leak but we just use them for water right now. The straw does lock down while they are being used.

We are using this one- Lil' Gripper® sippy cups, baby cups

Nathan is only taking 2 bottles a day the last few days he just keeps refusing them for the most part. I'm wondering if he would drink more if it wasn't in a bottle. He doesn't really like the sippy we have (it's one that Kayla did well with at first).

Sebastian drinks his morning and evening bottles great; but the afternoon one is a hit & miss. have you started transitioning to whole milk yet? (not sure if you are planning to or not), but this evening I made his evening bottle 1/2 formula and 1/2 whole milk and he drank it really enthusiastically. But he is soooo not attached to the bottles, I think he drinks bc I offer, but if I stopped he wouldn't care as long as I fed him something else, lol.

Maybe try a different sippy? It took Sebastian some time with the take-n-toss to figure out to lift them for the water to come out, but now that he did, he drinks the water great.

He drinks his morning bottle great and drinks an afternoon one but refuses one before bed. Yeah Nathan doesn't seem to be very attached either lol
I have been transitioning to milk but haven't noticed a difference. Maybe I'll change the ratio and see if he likes that (he's been getting 3/4 formula 1/4 milk).
Thanks

We have three of the Sip and Smile Spill Proof sippy cups from Gerber.

We also have one of the Avent Natural Drinking Cups, which she loves but is so bad at using. She dribbles water all over her!

Jon doesn't drink real well from the sippy cup but he loves to chew on it. I'm not sure what brand mine is but it has a soft rubbery top. My older daughter also uses the take n toss cups. I like them because they are inexpensive (if you lose them) and easy to clean. Since she is only allowed to have them in the kitchen it's not a problem if they spill a bit. I'm going to try to start pushing the cup a little more as I would like to take Jon off the bottle at a year. He only gets the bottle at the sitter's or on the rare occasion that I'm not around. We are still bf'ing.

Straw sippy cups over here have been using them for about two months now. He does well with cups and regular straws too. It's nice because mommy brain still plagues me an I sometimes forget to bring a sippy cup if we go out to dinner.

That is another reason we use straw cups. Katelyn can drink out of a regular straw when we are out too. Its nice.

I bough the NUk double valve ones, but she chokes on the water and backwashes food into it during meals. EW. So I switched to a regular hard spouted one and these work so much better, leak less, and no backwash possible!
