I feel late transitioning my baby from bottle to cup. He turns 1 this week, drinks water from cup while eating, but refuses milk from it. Any tips? I’m also switching from formula to milk this week

We were also behind in that aspect - at about 13 months we got rid of the last formula/bottles. With bedtime bottles we started putting less formula (like 3 oz instead of 4) and then started making them more watered down until it was just water and he didnt want it anymore. For daytime we just gave him whole milk from a cup ( a different cup from the water cup) & he adjusted pretty quickly; if he likes the milk he will drink it as you keep offering & eventually have fun doing it himself. He always gets a water cup and a milk cup at meals and he gets to pick which he wants by pointing or shaking his head.

Thank you!

The AAP recommends transitioning before 18 months so you’re not behind. I went from bottle to straw cup (Munchkin weighted straw cup) rather than sippy cup or open cup. I didn’t want to deal with the spills or have to transition away from the sippy cup as well. I started by offering the straw cup in place of bottle for one of the feedings, then two, etc. I tried not to bring back the bottle for the designated straw feeding. If baby refused for that feeding, I gave more yogurt to keep dairy intake high. If your baby has trouble transitioning from formula to milk, my daycare recommended doing one transition at a time so that it’s less jarring. Start with the transition to milk.

Thanks so much!

I’m pretty sure mine took bottles until like age 2. Don’t sweat it, this is not one of the things to let yourself worry or feel guilty about!

We introduced an open cup at 6m. It's not too late! The key is to get a cup small enough so your child can easily pick it up AND to pour the tiniest amount of liquid in. Like literally, 1 splash of liquid. Once your child can control this quantity you can add more to the cup. And if they spill, wipe it up together ("ah, some milk is on the table now. See how I wipe it with the cloth? Now you try"). After about 2 weeks (or less) your child should be able to progress to normal amounts of liquid. Cup wise I recommend using a shot glass or similar size. We use the Duralex brand and nothing has broken so far (started at 6M, now 15M).

I would also not expect your child to drink as much milk from a cup as they do from a bottle - it's a much harder skill to conquer
