Lucy only takes her bottle at nap time and bed time. She isn't fussed taking drinks from a sippy cup and tends to fling it around the place. I give her the doidy cup to drink from
 
and she loves it always has the only problem is letting her drink from it herself she is soaking me and the dogs all the time

Avery still gets a bottle at naptime and bedtime... when we are home. If we are out, I do not take a bottle with us... she drinks out of a cup with a straw all the time but when she is tired she will not drink milk from anything but a bottle... she really won't drink milk from a cup either, unless it's chocolate or strawberry milk. I'm having horrible issues with this...

Both my boys only took to the Munchkin cups with the straws, but we took them off at 14 months with no problems on those cups. If I tried other cups, they wouldn't take!

I had some trouble in the beginning with meal time (around 10 mos) but just kept trying new ones until I got to one she liked (or maybe she just figured out I was stopping the bottle
 
) once she figured out a straw- she was fine, and now she'll take any kind.... but then again... I never gave her a bottle to sleep, so she never associated that with sleeping-- so I think that makes an easier transition-- she doesnt think 'tired/bottle'..... i don't think that's totally the issue, but she's pretty laid back too and that helps also...

so advice... just keep trying

I was freaking out at the year mark feeling the pressure to take the bottle away from Lucy but then decided that what was working for us was okay and I'd tackle it later on. She takes a bottle just before bedtime and 2oz at nap time but lately she has been firing it out of her cot/pram so I'm taking that as a sign she doesn't need it. She was also sleeping with me for around 3 mths (waking up during night wanting me) and then all of a sudden she stopped
 
so I've come to conclusion that I will take my lead from her
 
you can tell I have only one kid because I indulge her
