DD is 13mo and we're trying to ditch the bottles. She no longer has a morning bottle (she has 100ml of formula on her breaky) but is still having lunch and bedtime bottles.
DD has been offered a sippy cup for a few months now with water, but has only just started actually drinking from it. She only has maybe a mouthful or so at a time. Other times if I show her the cup she starts having a tantrum until I take it away!
Today I tried giving her the lunch time formula in the sippy cup and she went ballistic until I transferred it to a bottle.
The nurse at the clinic said to go cold turkey on the bottles and use more formula in her meals so she's still getting the nutrition as she doesn't think DD will improve with the cup until she knows there's no bottle coming.
She can't have dairy so I want to make sure she gets enough formula, as well as making sure she gets enough fluids. She eats really well and handles all kinds of foods without any issue.
Am I over thinking this? Any ideas on how to get her to have her lunch bottle in a sippy cup??
