Oh, the sippy cup. It’s been a slow process with this one. Sam is much more interested in chewing on it than actually extracting any sort of liquid from it. Plus, his favorite (and sole) liquid up until now has been milk, and so this strange mysterious clear liquid has him all sorts of disinterested. Like, What is this imposter? You want me to drink this? Um, no. Give me the good white stuff, thanks.
I’m pretty sure that’s his stream of thought.
So we’re giving him a sippy cup every day. But just nonchalantly. Like, oh this old thing? We just sit it on his high chair at every meal, and hold it up to his mouth. Sometimes he actually drinks some water (the slightest, tiniest sip!) and then the majority dribbles down his chin and he grins. And that’s how the sippy cup introduction has been going! But! It’s going! And with everything aux bébés, it takes time.
Patience is certainly a virtue, I’ve learned, as a mother. And mostly, I’m pretty good at it. Mostly. ;)
To enter, just leave a comment letting me know when you introduced the sippy cup, or when you plan on doing so.
And hey, any advice is welcome, as always.
Good luck! Winners will be chosen one week from today!
