Bottles or Cups?

Who is still using a bottle? Who is using a cup? What kind of cup?

Blaine has officially off the bottle for about a month now. Before he would drink during the day from one but not take his milk in it. I tried a couple of different ones and just gave up. One night I gave him his milk in one of the cups and he took it. I held my breath for the next day and he took it again. I toss the bottle in the trash and havent looked back! Woot!

This is like the cups we use. He really likes them.

Audrey has always refused bottles, which drove me crazy, but I guess it meant that there was no tough transition to deal with. She generally uses a straw cup for water, and I keep trying to get her to drink milk. So far she's just not a fan!

We stopped bottles at one year as well. We use the NUK sippy cupswithout the optional suction gaskets. We are also starting the transition to regular cups.

Never offered Noah a bottle. He's been using cups since about the time we introduced solids. I need to buy him more straw cups.

We haven't used bottles in a very, very, very long time. About 1 year and he switched to a sippy cup, which he still uses. But he can use a regular cup, he's just messy.
