My 2 year old took a sippy cup in daycare and bottle at home till earlier this year. I pulled him out of daycare a few months ago to be a SAHM. Since then, he has refused sippy cups and went back to bottles. I tried weaning him off when he was just out of daycare and he drank some milk from it twice in 2 days. I couldn't bear his crying so I decided to wait till he turned 2 (BIG mistake!).
I have been trying to get him to use the sippy since yesterday and he just cries inconsolably. He hasn't had any milk whatsoever and refuses to touch the cup. I have bought different types of sippys, put his favorite Mickey stickers on them, and stayed firm. But I'm worried 'coz it's 80 degrees here and he will not take any liquids whatsoever. He is eating though.
How long did it take for your kids to accept the sippy? Esp if you started the bottle weaning late? And although I have stayed firm, I am pretty worried. Should I, at some point give in? Are there any medical reasons for toddlers to HAVE to use sippy cups? I have tried a regular cup, trainer cup, straw cup... and nothing works.
I could really use some advise Thanks all..
