I can't get Sam to take a cup. He has never had a bottle. It's getting hard because he is cutting molars and incisors and doesn't want to eat, so he wants to nurse all the time. And he is a big 28 pound boy, so he has a big appetite. Does anyone have any tips for how to get him on to a cup a little bit?
mama to 5 yr old DS1 , 3 year old DS2 , and nursling DD .
What is the problem when you try to get him to take the cup? Does he refuse to touch it or does he simply not figure how to use it? I worked for few months with DD before she would drink from the sippy by herself.

Elliott did that for a LONG time with sippy cups. I tried a straw cup in vain months ago. One day I handed a straw cup to him, and he drank out of it.
One thing that helped back when I went to work and he wouldn't drink anything at all, was letting him drink out of our regular cups....it got him more interested in cups. Overall, it was still a long process though....hope he starts soon for you!
I have the same problem with my DS. He will drink water out of a regular cup though. I have 4 different sippy cups and he hasn't figured out any of them. The straw one is the worst! It's like sucking a really thick milkshake so I don't see how he would figure that out easily.
