One of my current goals is to move from the bottle to a sippy cup with Boston. Up until now it has NOT gone well. I am a big fan of keep trying but he has to be ready and want to do it to. We put them up for awhile - all 50 types/styles/variations that we thought be might use.
This morning he REALLY wanted a drink of my coke zero (no hate mail please) he took a couple of sips out of the side of my cup and kept coming back for more - so I ran to the cabinet - grabbed the first sippy I saw and dumped in some coke - YES! He took about 8 drinks.
We had to take out the "stopper" that makes it spill proof. (which explains the double bib!) His muscles still aren't quite ready for that much sucking I guess - but it is a start! I figure if he gets the hang of it this way....we can add the "stopper" in later.
I did end up dumping the pop and filling it with water& juice - which he tolerated ;) We shall see!
