Hi Arial, Is he taking anything from a beaker, water/juice? Our DS was taking water from a sippy cup by 5 months and even still when he was 1 we changed him to a beaker for his milk too but for a day or two he refused it.. then the 3rd day he just took it? It's one of those persevere things! How many days have you been trying for?

he was taking lots of water before he got a bug a couple of weeks ago but hes gone off the beaker a bit. today was the second day trying it. he took 2oz yesterday and 1oz today. each time he took some he just spat it out again.
