HI. My two and half year son always prefers to have milk in the bottle and doesn't drink at all if I try to give it by cup. Have tried everything possible to make him drink by cup, but he cries a lot and says he doesn't want in it. I brought different types of attractive cups, tumblers and also tried to make him understand that he shouldn't use bottle anymore. But nothing is working out. Any suggestions to handle this please? He will be going to school from this June and I want him to get used to cup before that.child-psychology Corner
You can only keep trying and may show him his peers like friends, cousins, drinking the milk same way to encourage him. You may flavour the milk with natural flavourings like elaichi powder, kesar, dates syrup or flavoured milk supplements. You may give in the form of fruit shakes like mango/banana/cheeku/apple shake. You may even try giving milk in the form of porridges/kheer/custards.
