The Crack (Sippy) Cup

For some time now, we have been trying to get William to drink from a sippy cup during his meal times. I'm still nursing 3-4 times a day but he's not getting much so I want to be sure he's well hydrated by giving him liquids along with his regular meals. He has not been interested. I've tried pretty much everything. I bought a cup with a soft spout that feels like a bottle nipple. William thinks it's a chew toy. I've tried water, apple juice, orange juice and milk. Nothing. After many attempts he would just end up looking like he was trying to enter a wet t-shirt contest.

Finally yesterday at the grocery store I had a lightbulb moment. CHOCOLATE milk. Worked like a charm. For a minute he just started to chew on the spout like he usually does but when just a drop of that chocolately goodness came out he was hooked. "Once it hits your lips, it's so good!" (Old School)

Now just the dilema of switching him from chocolate milk back over to something that's actually good for him...
