Sippy Cups (1yr+)

I want to get my 15mon old off bottles(i know I'm late) What cups do you recommend that would still make him think their bottles. I have tried all the one from when my 5yr old was younger.


Looking for one that has the bottle nipples on them but are sippy cups.

    We bought the ones at Walmart that have a soft nipple like tip and gradually switched to the hard tip and then straws. I also recommend give a small cup a try. Use just a little water for practice so a spill won't be a bad mess to clean :-)

    I have tried those. He will drink out of a regular straw but not a sippy cup one.

    What would be the point of even switching if the nipples will still be the same? (I swear I'm not being sarcastic or anything lol)
    They have sippys with soft spouts, dd had one, it was the brand NUB. We've never had any issues, but she never had bottles. Good luck mama! :)

    I have tried to get him to use the sippy cup spout ones & the straws burt he isn't having it. So I thought I would try these.

    For my youngest I had to get these

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Gerber-Graduates-9-oz-Insulated-Straw-Cup-Fireworks-BPA-Free-2pc/20449589

    The straw doesn't have any extra texture on it and is the size of a regular straw. She started drinking water out of them around 7 months because her big sister uses them. Around a year she was able to drink out of any of the straw cups.
    My two older kids didnt start sippies until a little after a year and I couldn't get them to do the hard plastic ones. My oldest used the soft ones of the same shape but those seem to wear out quickly so I tried the straws with my middle - success!

    We are using many sippy cups mostly we use the little belly washer bottle things. They have characters on the top of them and my dad loves them.

    I thought about doing those. I find him grabbing his brothers from time to time
