Moving on from a bottle to a cup doesn't mean that you need to stop giving your child breastmilk or formula if you don't want to. Sometimes, offering water in a cup straight away can make the transition tougher, so some parents like to give their little one milk in a cup first to encourage them to start drinking from one before they transition to drinking water.
Source of comfort for them.
They will get used to sitting at the table to drink, and theyll start to mimic how you drink from a glass.
Transition from milk to water gradually.
Out with the old, in with the new - Keep their old bottles out of sight and instead, put their colourful new cups on display.
