Straw Cup Drinker!!!!!

I am soooo excited to announce that we have a STRAW CUP DRINKER!!
The Cup that made a difference.
$1.44 at Wal*Mart
Drinking from his straw
I saw a blog post from another one of my sweet momma's in Christ about how she got her precious Angel boy to drink from a straw cup and after hearing her exciting news about straw drinking I wanted to give the "Juice Box" a try.

Thank You so much, Elisabeth for your Blog post!!

I got home this afternoon after buying the new cup and washed it out filled it with some cold water and put it to the test. The First time we put it in Hunter's mouth he thought he was suppose to chew on it, so we took it out of his mouth and gave him a second to refresh and then tried again. The second time we placed in his mouth and I gave it a gentle squeeze to get a little water in his mouth. It was a bit of a shocker to him. We then took it away from him and gave him another second to refresh. The Third time we gave another gentle squeeze and he started sucking through the straw!! Jarrod and I were grinning from ear to ear and let him continue on for about 10 minutes, well until he got the hiccups from drinking so much water.

I am so proud of our little guy!!
&& am Praising the Lord for another sweet blessing!!


  1. That's awesome! Jack drinks well from a straw cup or sippy cup until we put milk in it. He wants milk in a bottle, not a sippy cup. He's so stubborn :) I have never seen a cup like that..I'll have to look the next time I am at walmart.

  2. We have not had any success with straw drinking yet, but I'll have to find a cup like Hunter's. Thanks for sharing! Are you guys going to do a Buddy Walk team?
