Not his brightest moment

Eóin loves to drink from a real big person cup. This however is time consuming for the poor mammy who's back breaks trying to help him. So we tried a sippy cup. Not sure he quite got the idea :) He thought it was great for chewing on the bottom and great for practicing launching from his highchair. Daddy had to say no because mammy was cracking up at his determination to get it off! Today he did pretty well actually - once he got the hang of it there was no getting it back!

Good for you!! The sooner they are off the bottle, the better. Ben did well transitioning to cups, but we had to throw away Matthew's bottles to get him to go to the cup. Now he's off sippies entirely and it's nice to not have two sets of cups to wash! Little brother is trying to follow in his footsteps and doing well at it, so the sippies might be gone from here before too long. Now, if I can just get Ben potty-trained before the baby comes.....

Isabelle would also just chew on the sippy cups at first and rarely get anything from them. so we got her the nubby brand that has a soft spout and she could really use it.

Yeah, we used the kind that had like a bottle nipple on top first. She loved it. But, she soon figured out how to push the nipple down and leak juice everywhere, so we "graduated" quickly. It was a good transition option, though.

The twins couldnt get their drink out fast enough so they chewed big holes in the top.
Clever little rascals.
