Why is the Sippy Cup So Damn Hard?
Mason will not drink out of a sippy cup. He just won’t. He loves to play with it, take it apart, dump it in his lap. But when it comes to washing down his broccoli and cheese or curried lentils by sipping from a cup, no dice. I’ve tried various kinds of sippy cups. I’ve tried tap water (his pediatrician’s preference because of the fluoride) and I’ve offered up bottled water. I’ve given him his sippy cup while he’s in the tub, thinking that it wouldn’t be so jarring when it spills it on himself. I’ve even drunk out of it, which just makes him laugh. Nothing I do has inspired the boy to take a swig.
What have you mamas done to get your babe to drink from a sippy cup? At this point I’m worried he’s going to be the only one in kindergarten still drinking out of a bottle-:)
