: My baby won't drink (make the sucking motion) on either a bottle or a sippy cup. I've tried different nipples on the bottle too. He just plays with them or puts the wrong end in his mouth and teeths on it. How do I get him to drink?

My only advice is that keep trying. My boy was breastfed until he was 8 months and he refused a bottle too. I kept trying a bottle everyday for weeks and finally he had to give in. I tried various bottles too - we succeeded with Avent. I would try with either a bottle or a sippy cup, but not both at the same time because you don't want to confuse him.
