Hi, my 14 month old daughter will only drink out of a bottle for her milk and juice. I have tried various cups but she refuses to drink from them, I have tried to only offer her the cup but by around 3pm I am so worried that she hasn't drank anything that I give in and give her a bottle!!! Any tips would be really appreciated...

Have you tried a cup with a built in straw? I have a munchkin one and I think Nuby do them too - bit more bottle like?

could you give her milk in a bottle and her water in a cup? Then even if she refuses the cup for a while you know she's had some liquid in the form of the milk.

I let ds2 drink out of his bottle at bedtime until he was 2. I couldn't make him drink milk at bedtime when he stopped with the bottle. Try a small plastic cup? I also got the roof cups that the water just runs out (no valve) as my boys didn't know what to do with the valve one.

Thanks spanky I have tried the free flow cups and she spat the liquid out but keeping bottles for milk only is something i will probably do for now... I will have to look out for a cup with a straw and try that, hopefully she will drink from it... thankyou smile
