Need to switch DD to formula. She's an ex bottle refuser.

She treats the bottle teat like a dummy and a sippy cup is too fast flow her. Is there anything in between?

How old is DD?
My response to the title was an open cup, but that will be even worse on the flow (mine were drinking from a doidy cup at 6 months).
Have you tried a sippy cup with a valve? Non valves are supposed to be better for teeth, but it might be worth a go.

DD is 9 months.

Sippy cup with valve (usually sold as no spill) is the obvious answer eg tommee tippee easy drinker.

She may get the hang of the free flow very soon though...

The Tommee Tippee one is good, we have about a million of them. We've had good success with these ones though, you can buy them in Boots: http://nuby.com/en/nuby/cups-spouts/1214. They've got a soft spout so a bit more like a bottle, but it has a kind of valve.

Nuk soft spout sippy - it's free flow but not super fast free flow, IYKWIM, and I think it's specifically designed to get babies used to a sippy.

Mine have both also liked the Tommy Tippee non spill as unlike some of the other valve cups it doesn't seem to involve massive effort to get any liquid out of it.

this is a good one

The plain nuby cup that I got in blue is rubbish and it leaks, this one never leaks.
