Q.

Weaning baby from bottle

My boy is 14 months now...he refuses to drink from a " sippy cup" . He takes one sip and messes with the rest of the milk. What is the next move? He can drink from a glass if we hold it, but obviously too young to do it by himself...

Your son is still very young. He is very clever to be able to drink from a glass already. Let him continue with his bottle for a while longer and keep trying to teach him to drink from a sippy cup, but be very patient. He will learn with time.
