And hopefully this type of sippy cup
Paci won't be an issue. He goes down without it and rarely ever has it. He will put it in his mouth if he sees it, but he doesn't actually need it.
Bottle shouldn't be a big issue. At our house, he only gets it right before bed. In the morning, he takes his formula from his sippy cup (he gets it during the day at Mrs. Cathy's, which is fine, that is their bonding time). So the transition from "milk" in a bottle to a sippy cup will be no problem.... except maybe at night. I have never given him the sippy cup for bed because it doesn't hold as much formula as the bottle does. I'm pretty sure that the sippy cup that he currently has would hold 6 oz of regular milk, but not of the formula (you know, because it is actually more than 6 oz).
Sippy cup is a whole other issue. He takes it just fine. This is the only sippy cup I have ever been able to get him to drink from (I have a whole cabinet full of different ones!). He loves it
I saw this in one of the parenting magazines I get and found it on Amazon:
I liked it because there isn't a nipple, there isn't a valve, and you can take the top off and it becomes a cup with handles.
Amazon also suggested these:
|OXO Tot Training Cup|
|Boon Fluid No Spill Toddler Cup|
Anyone have any other suggestions? I think I'm going to purchase the first one I found. If that doesn't work, then I will try some of the others (well, I need to find ones with lids).
