try a water bottle... or wait until he is a little older.. try a regular cup at the table... my kids loved a reg. cup.. they spilled it.. but they liked it.. they also liked juice boxes.. they work good when you are out.. good luck

It might be a little messy at first, but he might be more interested in a regular cup. You can get the disposable plastic cups you might use in your bathroom since they are small and easier for a child to hold. You could also try strawed cups. Does he not drink milk at all now or is he drinking from something else? Does he use a sippy cup for other beverages? Good luck. Just be patient--he'll learn to drink it one way or another. :)

Try a straw cup- my son hated the sippy b/c he had to tip his head back and he would loose his balance. Best advice we got when we were trying to ditch the bottle was to offer only water in the bottle and if he wanted milk or he needed to use the cup. It only took a couple of days, but at 15 months were packed up the bottles and he loves the straw cup!

Have you tried a strawed cup. My daughter wasn't to fond of the sippy at first. But she loved the strawed cups. Try that.
