O is just not getting the sippy cup! I've even bought a few different designs in case he preferred one over the other! Any ideas to encourage him?

A didn't get it for ages! We gave him a straw cup which he suddenly 'got' one day. Now we have a few different types and rotate them so he gets used to drinking out of different cups. It's funny because he first tries to suck the spout, if that doesn't work, he tips the cup up... sometimes he tips the straw ones up and gets nothing, sometimes he tries to suck the normal ones and gets nothing! But he usually gets there in the end. I think the straw one helped to begin with because he didn't understand how to tip the sippy cup up to get the water. Make sure you fill it up quite a lot too so it's easier to get water out.

Does C use a beaker? Would he drink from a sippy cup or would he not want to? Just thinking if O watches C drinking he will probably learn best by copying him.

This thread is really useful for me as D point blank refuses to drink from a sippy cup. I will try one if the straw ones and keep offering, good to know others have had the same issue and got there eventually!

J didn't like sippy cups, so he used a cup with a straw.
