Hi there! My dd just hit the one year mark on 11/18/10 and I find that I really don't want to stop breastfeeding, and she doesn't seem ready, so we're just gonna keep going until it feels like it's time to stop.

However... I am switching jobs soon, and I won't be able to feed her while I'm working any longer, so I am trying to get her onto a sippy cup. She will pretend drink from all sorts of things, big cups, her sippy, and regular water bottles but she doesn't seem to grasp the idea of actual drinking. When she gets water in her sippy, she mostly just shakes it all over the place. She stopped drinking from bottles at about 4m, which was probably my fault because we were really inconsistent with it... It was just so much easier to pull out the nip and pop it in her mouth! So... does anyone have any ideas on how to get her to actually drink from the sippy and not just throw the water everywhere?

Thanks in advance...

Thank you so much, cavewoman!

Congrats on one year! I moved my dd straight to an open cup and it went very well. Just start with a small size cup with a couple tablespoons of water. I bet she'll pick it quickly.
