    Didn't want to read and run but my son wouldn't have a bottle past 10 months and refused it so went on to a cup have you tried with juice first then move to putting milk in it xx

    He is fine with water and juice in the cup but the second he tastes milk he screams. My hv recommended I get him off bottle asap cos I have my second due in 6 weeks. I think its a good idea just dont know where to start.

    you could do a special milk cup for him!!!!! with j he was never a massive fan of milk in a beaker at first but we just put it in one and left it up to him. if he was hungry he would have it and he did really quickly. Saying that though joshua would have any food from anywhere. HAha x

    I wouldn't be in a rush hun especialy as u have a new lo due let him let you know when he's ready to give them up and he'll probably want the comfort they provide when the new los here x

    Thanks, today we got him a new cup and he has been happy to take his milk from it. Hv said he might get jelous of new babys bottles if not and should be easier now than later. He hasnt drunk as much with it but he was drinking too much anyway, he eats really well so doesnt need it.
