Question About Similac Alimentum

I have a two month old who has had some feeding issues. His doctor put him on Alimentum two days ago because of his spitting up. He had been gaining weight well.

Trying to Transition to Sippy Cup

He finds comfort in his bottle. I am trying to transition him to the sippy cup with no luck. He is okay drinking water or juice out of the sippy but not milk (still on alimentum).
