Purposely spilling from sippy Adriana's Mami♥ +1 Due December 14 (boy); 33 kids; Ontario 3858 posts

For the last week DD has been purposely spilling milk and water from her sippy, it's the kind with the soft tip, she'll suck the liquid out and just let it spill all over her shirt. Also, I let her have a sippy at naptime, she just woke up crying 20 mins after I put her down (usually she sleeps 2-3 hours) well her whole shirt, the crib sheet and her hair is soaked in milk. No more sippy for naptime that's not an issue for me but how do I stop her from doing it during the day? I of course tell her she can't do it, but she doesn't listen. She's 22 months.

I stopped using the soft spout ones when my son turned one because they leak horribly even without help from the child. I'd start using a hard tip one.

She won't take it at all lol. She'll give the hard tip one back to me. I've left it there and told her she wasn't getting it any other way, she'd rather not drink at all. She's definitely making it spill on purpose though we've been using this kind since she was 6 months and never had issues.

Hmm. Then idk. It took about a week of constant introduction before my son would take the hard tip ones.

I bought a bunch of hard tip and even straw ones and its what I offer her first, it will sit there for like 2 hours before I let her have a soft one. She likes playing with water so I get why she spills that but the milk is disgusting.

I give my daughter the tumblers they have a bunch at the Disney store for there size ....it's like those reusable cups with the screw on lid and the straw is a regular straw but won't come out if she try's to pull it out! It's not spill proof so she might spill that too lol but my daughter loves it

Im still learning the ropes with this stuff too, but have you tried correcting her? Im sorry if that is a silly question. My daughter is in 17 months and we use the soft tip sippys as well. Shes been spilling on purpose... the way you said your dd is also by turning it upside down and just making it come out on the furniture or drink it, get a mouth full and let it spill out all over her. She discovered she could do this and thinks its fun. It hasnt stopped completely, but when we catch her doing it.. we just firmly tell her no and depending if she does it again right away, we tell her no and take it away for a bit and gice it back. She hasnt stopped her from doing it completely, but she does seem as if shes listening more when we tell her no. Good luck!
