Well she is starting to become a big girl now. Trying to feed herself with a spoon and using a sippy cup (only for water and juice and only when playing). Of course the bottle is still her friend and she won't use the cup at meals. But at least she's starting to see it as an ok thing rather than her worst enemy. We were having WWIII for a while over the bottle/sippy cup. So we are trying a different approach. It's all well and good to say "if she's hungry/thirsty enough she'll use it" but 'they' haven't met a very strongwilled little girl named Autumn. She went 4 days without taking in any liquids, we decided to wave the white flag and open negotiations.
