Babe is 32 months old and refuse to drink via straw or sippy cup or just a normal cup. Any tips? 🥲

Hi. I am currently an early childhood teacher. For this, practice makes perfect. At 32 mo months, they are very independent and want to do everything on their own. Keep modelling for them. Put the cup in front and keep encouraging him/her to drink and model for the baby. It will be messy and difficult but don't give up!

Hi ! LO currently going to N1. At school we found out that he actually does drink from the straw. But at home, he will refuse. But we still try and give hime the options. But now he loves to use normal plastic cup. Just the straw. I think for him, he hates the texture of the straw in his mouth.

Omg me too!! My #1 is 18mths now and whenever I give him straw bottle, he nvr drinks…. Getting rly fed up with this. 😭
