I thought I would let Harrison try a sippy cup while I was feeding him the other day. I hear the transition from the bottle to the cup can be sticky, so I thought I would give it a shot. He has two sippy cups: one, his Nana bought him while she was out here and the second one, I bought the other day because it was on sale. I tried the one that I bought him first. As soon as he put it in his mouth, he made the most horrific face I have ever seen. It was as if I had dropped acid in his mouth (maybe that is why that sippy cup was on sale?). The one his Nana bought him worked like a charm. He loved it. He hasn't quite figured out the exact mechanics of it, but he knows to bring it to his mouth. I think he just isn't ready to hold it the whole time. I can understand that. I have been holding his bottle for him since day 1. If someone held my drink for me all of the time, I would be reluctant to let someone know that I could hold if for extended periods of time. Why give up that luxury? I have a feeling this train of thought might resurface during potty training.
