So a family member told me that 10 months (almost 11 months) is too early to have Kadyn off of bottles.
Right now Kadyn's using the Nuk Learner cup/active cup (pictured above). This family member said the reason is "She needs to be comforted, and you're taking away a way to soothe her."
Our doctor said the reason why Kadyn is refusing a lot of her bottles (except the Nuk brand) is because her mouth probably hurts. She has a "small mouth" and is teething, so that means pain. She told me to try a cup, let her choose which one was right for her.
After buying about a bazillion cups, Kadyn finally found one she likes using. Kadyn is still eating and drinking enough. She doesn't seem fussy -she's the same baby. I don't feel like I'm being cruel.
But what do you Momaroos think? What age did you transition your little one from a bottle to a sippy cup?
