Hi all, I am trying to move my baby (just 1) from a bottle to a cup for his milk. He has two bottles a day (on waking and at bedtime) and I would like to keep him having 2 milks a day. He already drinks water during the day from a tommee tippee free flow. But when we have tried in the morning to give him his milk in a cup he just dissolves into tears and refuses to take the cup. Just cries until we give in and we give him his bottle. Have been trying for over a week. Haven't changed his milk, its the same formula. Have only tried in the morning, not the evening. Don't know what to do, any advice?
He might be really hungry and disorientated when he first wakes up so it might be better to try again at night time, or move his milk feed until after he has breakfast. DS is 17mo and will not drink milk from a lidded cup son we use an open plastic beaker.
Hi DD is 1 next week (hurrah) and we made an easy transition from breast to cup by going for a Nuby cup with a silicone straw. She was hopeless with the Tommy Tippee free flow cups and just liked to tip them upside down but loves the straw, thinks its heaps of fun so you could try that? I don't recommend the Tommee Tippee straw cups though, they've got a funny valve system that gets blocked up easily. Good luck!
