Her first need is her necessary cup of milk. We previously bought these Tommee Tippee Explora Drinking Cups to hopefully help Ashlynn transition from her sippy spout and straw cups to drinking from a regular cup, since there is no pronounced spout, just a raised rim. They are pretty much leak proof as long as you make sure you put the parts in the cap together correctly, so they've been a favorite of mine for that reason and pretty much the only way a sippy can be spared a trip to the recycle bin. And the new Animal Antics line, graciously sent to us by Tommee Tippee, has been a favorite of Ashlynn's, she asks for her Ellie cup almost daily, she loves her "phants". And since it's white it's the designated milk cup and she gets pretty upset if it ends up with water.
these cups, especially if we are leaving the house. However, I grabbed two of these tumblers from Target earlier in the month for smoothies.
It's hard for Ashlynn to drink them from her sippies and I'm too nervous to give her anything without a lid. They were super cheap and are totally doing the trick. Even better, she's so obsessed with the straw and the fact it looks like mommy's cup that she's finally drinking more water. Girl had been on a water strike for a month or two, I think I talked about it in a monthly update, but now it's all become a game. Yay for hydration in style!
