hi everyone...my kid is 2.5 years old...he still drinks  from a feeding bottle..i m trying hard to make him shift to a small glass but he refuses..pls suggest wat is the best way..

Sheeba Vijesh

don't give in to his bottle demands. if u are finding it difficult, get a sippy cup, not with straw, but which you have to tilt with to drink... i think 2.5 can understand what you say, tell him this is how big boys drink, other one is for babies... be patient... give him his favourite juice or drinks in glass. tell him see, you are almost big as daddy, and see daddy drinks from glass... be patient and consistent...

anytime dear.. take care...

I asked my daughter to throw it in the bin. explained to her that she was a 'big girl.' since she threw it on her own there was no looking back.:)

use a straw the colored.one with cartoon are a charm . after he.gets.used to the straw.u.can shift directly to glass. 2.5 years is.still to.early to.drink.from.glass they might spill it and scared to.hold it longer .

hey sheeba , ya ur right  .u were lucky . my girls wud never hold glass they wud spill it and be scared or.sipping . straw was a god send miracle . but every kid has their own pace their own unique gifts .

I tried with a sipper which has straw also. Simultaneously, with a small cup with colorful cartoons on it. Both worked out well. But u should have patience.
