DS will only drink from one cup

My DS is 3 years old and has asd. In the scheme of things this is a very minor problem but a problem nonetheless. wink

Up until a few months ago, DS had lots of different colours and brands of straw cups that he would drink out of. Then, as things do, the numbers of cups started to dwindle, getting lost, etc and he just started drinking out of the same two cups that we were left with.

Over the weekend I bought some new cups (same brand, different colour) and he refuses to drink from them. hmm Fair enough I thought, but I'm concerned that even if I go to lengths to make sure the retailer sends me the same colour that he's currently using, he still won't use it because the straw will be in perfect condition and not the chewed up one he currently has. He doesn't miss a trick this kid.... grin

Regardless, I don't want him to get stuck using the same type/colour of cup as then what do we do in a emergency, i.e. if we lost it on holiday, etc.

Anyone else overcome this issue? Any ideas, tips, most welcome.

Do they come apart? Could you change parts at a time? Dd uses a botttle, it's all about the teat

I find these sorts of things come and go. Wash the new ones several times in your washing powder.

We leave new stuff lying around the house so Dd3 gets used to seeing it.

She is still very particular about what she will drink out of but not as bad as when she was 3.

Good luck flowers
