Best sippy for a bf baby????

My dd is 11 mos and still not taking a sippy. She wont even take a bottle anymore which poses a problem as I am looking to return to work just after her first bday. I need help getting her to take a sippy and a rec for a good sippy. Ive tried a nuk trainer cup, gerber sip n smile, nuby straw cup, and regular nuby and playtex sippies with no success.
Ive never done this before as my two older dds were ff and transitioned to cup very easily. Any advice?

Here is a good link for teaching to drink from a straw
http://www.mother-2-mother.com/cups-older.htm

I don't know the sippy cups you reference but have you tried taking the stoppers/valves out of them so she can have the free flow of milk to get her started?

My LO likes the kleen Kanteens. He has been using it since he was 7 months. We have to hold it for him but he knows how to drink from it.

He would totally choke if I took that stopper out so the liquid ran out freely.

She may choke or spill I suppose. You could start with water and help her regulate the first few times. I think some kids need that instant gratification to understand - hey, there is something good in here! Hope it works for you

The Easter Bunny just brought Dylan a Born Free sippy and he's already able to drink out of it. The spout is soft and long. My other kids were never able to drink from a sippy this early.
