    I don't really have any advice, but I've also been giving my son cow's milk now as we want him completely weaned before his little sister is born. Aiden's never had a problem with taking it cold, but that's because he's only ever had cold drinks. He never liked his formula or anything warm. Another thing we did with Aiden was that we didn't use sippy cups hardly ever. He just didn't like them. So we got little cups with covers and straws, which he seems to like much better and is getting very good at not trying to drink too much at once. Maybe warming the milk up some, would help. :shrug:

    I would try warming the milk, I think it's pretty common for babies to not like their milk cold

    Yea i heard milk straight from the fridge sometimes makes their little tummys hurt, I warm lilys in the microwave for about 10 seconds just to take the chill off it. I guess my only advice on milk in the sippy cup is persistance, just keep trying I guess! Probably rubbish but thats what I'd try to do. Hope it gets better hunny. xx:hugs:

    have you tried it through a different type of cup? ie not a sippy cup but a beaker with a flip-down straw? or even just with a straw in a cup?

    sorry, only things i could think of!! XX

    I would probably just use a cup of hot water (restaurants around here usually give us one without any fuss)

    At first i took the edge of the coldness by warming for a few seconds in the microwave. Then gradually she got used to it being abit colder. Sorry dont know about geting him off the bottles as Olivia still has her milk in a bottle before bed.
    Did he take formula milk in his beaker?

    Marlie loves her Nuby too! We started weaning her from her bottle by just switching one bottle at a time. So far, we've only managed to switch her morning bottle when she's the least tired. I was supposed to switch her afternoon bottle today, but then she had a fall and bumped her lip really badly. It was quite traumatic for her, so I kept her with the bottle for today.
