He will only drink from a bottle, and refuses cups full stop. Have tried a few different ones, but no go, he won't even put them in his mouth. Have even tried getting him to drink from a cup with no lid, but he won't swallow. Problem is, he won't really drink water, even from a bottle, and I don't want to give him juice in a bottle, so he is getting too much milk!

Advice gratefully received!

When you've offered it to him has it been at meal times etc whilst you are watching him? or have you tried just leaving him a cup with a bit of water in to play with? Both of mine after just playing with the cup over a matter of weeks just started one day drinking from the cup, just try initially to let it become a familiar object to him.

Did try that once, but he just shook it and drenched himself and the floor.grin Guess I will just have to get used to the mess and keep a towel handy!

Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.
