We've GOT to kick the bottle, QUICK!

We have two more weeks of the bottle, then according to Dr. G, we must be a sippy cup only little girl. I have really had a hard time with this. I mean look at her. She's so relaxed with the bottle.

All jokes aside, any suggestions you have to help us kick the bottle would be wonderful. She will NOT drink any milk from her sippy cups. We've tried strawberry and chocolate milk, warm and cold milk and either she gagged or looked at me like I was crazy with each. I haven't tried vanilla milk, that's next on the list. The dr said that it was okay for her to not have milk for two weeks if she won't drink it, but I think she really needs the calories. She's such a picky eater and with her being sick lately, she's back down to 19-20 lbs. And yes, she's almost 15 months old. So wish us luck, we go and see Dr. G in a couple of weeks and I really want to have tackled this by then. :)

Does she like water much? You could put water in the bottle and milk in the cup.

Maybe try putting water and something that does not taste all that good (but would not hurt her) in the bottle.

This may be my favorite Abby picture of all time! Vanilla milk worked for us ... I hope Abby likes it!
