It took a lot of patience, persistence, trying out different sippy cups, different liquids in the sippy cups and even different consistencies of those liquids, but I think we finally figured out how to get Kinley to drink from a sippy cup all by herself!!
You might be thinking "What is the tasty liquid that would entice Kinley to finally drink from her cup?" Well, it is banana flavored whole milk from the Shatto Milk Company. The Shatto Milk Company is a local dairy farm that does not use any growth hormones in their cows. It comes in glass bottles and is sold at local grocery stores such as Hen House and Hy-Vee as well as Whole Foods. It also comes in fun flavors such as strawberry, chocolate, orange (think dreamsicle popsicle), root beer (think root beer floats) and of course, Kinley's favorite...banana. Shatto milk was recommended by Kinley's OT and since whole milk is pretty thick already we don't even have to thicken it!
