Default Sippys vs bottles

Is anyone totally off the bottle yet? Ethan is still taking a bottle of milk once to twice a day if I am at work. Otherwise if Im home, I nurse. (yes, I am STILL nursing!! I am in the process of weaning. I hope to be done in the next month!!) At mealtimes he takes a sippy. I usually fill it with either water or orange juice because he really doesn't like milk in it-only in a bottle.

Chloe still takes a bottle several times per day. She only drinks water and diluted juice from a sippy. She's a pro at straw-drinking!

Avery still gets her formula in bottles... she doesn't like it in sippys... and she uses a cup with a straw... I finally found a sippy without a valve that had a lid.... she's drank from a straw since just a few months old... she gets water or diluted juice from her sippy

Lola is off formula and on cow's milk per my pediatrican. we did the same for Michael when he turned 12months. she drinks cows milk from a sippy and it only took her a day to adjust to the different spout of a sippy. she will also drink OJ and water, but thats it. I have a ton of bottles of Juicy Juice in my fridge and car for when we are out and about..but she wont drink a drop of it.

Preston won't take any type of bottle. He doesn't know how to suck from sippy cups either. So he drinks water from the take and toss sippy cups - they don't have a valve. He makes a huge mess when he throws them, but it's the only thing I've found that works for him.
