    Default Transitioning from bottles to sippy cups

    My dd turned 1 on the weekend and was having four bottles a day until yesterday, when we cut the afternoon one and replaced with snacks.

    So now having a bottle when she wakes, mid morning and before bed.

    I keep reading that at 12 months, they should be drinking from a cup.
    Is this what most ppl do?
    And what sort of cup? Sippy cup or straw cup?
    Brand recs?

    Gonna go and get one or (more?) today (she already has a water one).
    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    My dd is 2 and she drinks from all cups apart from her milk she refuses to drink it from anything but a bottle. It's driving me crazy.

    my 19 month old ds still has bottles for milk, he only has one in the morning with breakfast and going to sleep of a night time. He will drink water from a dinkee cup with a straw. Sometimes he will have milk out of it but thats only if he wants some during the day and i just give it to him in a cup!!
    i have tried soooo many different brands but the only one he seems to drink out of is the dinkee cup with a straw OR a sports bottle.

    the brand sites, ie. tommee tippee, nuby, etc. says at 12 months they should be drinking out of a straw! No way will my dd know how to suck thru a straw!

    I guess I'll just have to have a good look at target today

    I thought the same about not drinking with a straw but my DD saw her friend drink with a straw cup and I tried her the next day with one andby the end of the day had the hang of it. She was about 10 months old. Maybe give it a try - you might be pleasantly surprised.

    Sippy cup at 11 months and then a straw cup around 17 months for us. Just keep offering it and as soon as they start drinking from it....ditch the bottles

    So I bought dd the nuby silicon spout no spill cup and she is finding it extremely difficult to suck the milk out.
    Did anyone else find this?
