DS uses a bottle for his first and last serving of formula each day (we aren't off formula quite yet) and he has been using a sippy cup for his 2 daytime servings for about a month. The weird thing is he has to lie down to drink from his bottle or sippy cup to do it unassisted. He drinks from the sippy cup just fine if he is laying down. I just don't know how to get him to use it sitting up.
I have tried showing him how to tilt the cup (or bottle) up, held it for him, let him watch me drink, and even give him a drink from a real cup. He just doesn't seem to get (or want to) use his arms to hold it up.
Anyone else go through this? Any suggestions on how to teach him?
Oh, and we have tried cups with straws and when he is really hungry/thirsty he gets frustrated. If he isn't hungry/thirsty he just plays with it or chews on it. He won't drink much (if anything) from it.
