take n toss straw cups
I found a straw cup Elyse can operate :) The only sippie she can use is the take n toss, and so far its the only straw cup brand she can do, too! the straw fits in really tight so she can't pull it out. Unfortunately, like their sippie, when she flings it or turns it upside down, it leaks out.

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
I can't even get Sebastian to hold a sippy...I think we will be on bottle until he graduates from high school. I hope they are still making the take and toss cups by then so he can make the transition for college. Thanks for the tips!! :)

Coyle Eagan. One Year Old. Doing well on Cow's Milk flavored with juice :) Drinking two bottles of Go&Grow daily. Eating solids better but still have rough days. No More Silent Reflux-that I can hear anyway.. but puking again. Zantac 2ML 2X daily.
i remembered your advice and bought some of those a few weeks ago. he too can drink from those much better. he chokes on most liquids tho but atleast he can get soemthing out. yeah, they do leak tho but atleast they get liquid unlike the other ones you have to suck with your life! maybe i'll try the straw ones next-he can drink from a straw pretty well.

Yeah, the straw one says 18 mos and up but i ignored that and determined that elyse is a genius ;) Melissa, Elyse would not hold her cup until a month or so ago. She still almost never holds her bottle, and when she does she has to be very reclined!

Mila is on Peptamen JR 30 cal by NG tube. Open Heart Surgery 2/08/08. Captopril, Zantac, Losec, Lasix.
Mila's 18 months old and she doesn't hold her bottle. She may or may not hold her sippy, which has water in it... cause they ALL LEAK.

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
Sarah is right. I plunked down $15 for the Foogo sippy (thermos, supposed to keep liquids cold for 6 hours) and even it leaks!!! Trust me, if they throw it down hard enough they will leak a little! Glad the straw cups are working for you :)
Check with your
doctor first!
