Same problem here, my son is 10 1/2 months and he will not feed from a beaker or hold a bottle or beaker himself, as i know it is bad for teeth and can slow speech i would be grateful for any help

Any suggestions to get baby to drink out of a beaker. My 9mth old only bites the cup but won't/can't suck it.

My baby will not drink out of any cups - i have tried several cups and drinks but she still will not drink it, I worry this will effect her health, do you have any suggestions.
