While Matt was away, I tried to take Maddy's milk sippy cup away (which was essentially her first transition cup from a bottle so it's pretty much like a bottle). She likes to pull on the rubber sippy part & one day while we were settling in for nap time with a book & her cup she pulled the top right out with her teeth spilling milk all over me, her and the rocking chair. I threw the cup away telling her 'all done.'
Would you believe that for the next 5 days she refused milk in any cup! I tried the 3 different styles of cups we have for her and she would have nothing to do with them if they contained milk (water & juice were fine, but milk no way!) Being concerned that she hadn't had any milk in almost a week, I finally broke down and bought her another Nuk cup like the one I threw away. Wouldn't you know that little turkey picked it up right away and drank every drop of milk from it!
Maddy 1 Mommy 0 on the great milk showdown, this will not be the last of it though.
