my four year old daughter does not want to drink milk in cup or glass. She says she feels like vomiting. but she easily drinks it in bottles. I have tried giving her chocolate in milk or giving her m milkshake but the result is same. right now I am somehow managing her have it one time in cup but she cries a lot and it takes a lot of time. How do I change her habit?

hi Piyush Lohia ! I do comprehend ur concern. take her to the market and bring attractive sippy cups or mugs. u could even try one with her pic on it or ones with her favourite character on it . I am sure she won't be able to resist it for long. ask her to donate her bottle to a child ,and make a story how she would be blessed for giving it to a needy . everytime she drinks from a cup or a glass , give her a smiley or a star. but avoid scolding her for not drinking as she would get further averse to it. hope this helps!
