My first DD was the same way. My DH has an aunt who is a nurse and she told me to go cold turkey, that DD would not go thirsty. Also, have you introduced a sippy cup before now? We found with DD#1 that we were trying to introduce too many new things at once, sippy cup and milk. So with DD#2 she started putting formula in a sippy cup around 10 months, she was getting her lunch and dinner formula this way. Then when we switched to milk, she took to it much faster than her big sister. Maybe if you haven't done a sippy cup before, try it with formula/BM for a few days before trying the milk again.

Others have recommended mixing formula/BM with the milk and gradually reducing the amount mixed in.

Another thing on the sippy cup, it could be the cup you are using. We are using Philips AVENT Philips AVENT Soft Spout Cup With Handles 7oz 2 Pk (6m ) - it says on the package that it's the easiest transition from a bottle to sippy cup. DD#2 LOVES these cups! I've tried another with her, she'll drink from it but not as good as she does with these.

Don't worry, your child will get the hang of milk soon!
