DDT - November 11

My ds is almost 9 months old and this is something I'm starting to think about. He currently drinks 3 bottles of warmed formula a day. How easy is it to transition from warm formula to cold milk? how easy is it to transition from a bottle to a sippy cup? should I start offering him room temp to cold formula in a sippy cup over the next couple of months so the transition is gradual? What are your experiences or readings on this topic??? Thanks! Also, he is starting in-home daycare when he is 11 months old (we live in Canada so generally most kids start their daycare after our 1 year maternity is up)...will the daycare want him transitioned to the sippy cup by the time he goes? Any thoughts? Thanks again!

my dd is 13 months and when she turned 12 mos I started by mixing 1/2 formula with 1/2 milk in a bottle. Then I gradually went all to milk and now she absolutely LOVES it. My dd also liked her formula warm so i thought it would be a problem, but it wasnt. She was also drinking cold water before so she was used to it. As far as the bottle/sippy cup thing is concerned, it should be totally up to you and your lo. My dd dosent really like her sippy (except with milk in it), but later in the day she just wants her bottle. I have never heard of day care making children use a sippy. My lo is starting day care in January and they just told us to bring bottles or whatever she is using at that time.
