I'm due to go back to work in 8 weeks and have been trying for about 4 weeks to get DS who is 6.5 months to take EBM from a bottle ... with limited success! No nipple confusion here ... Just complete rejection from a very strong little boy who knows what he wants!
He will take small amounts from a regular small cup that I hold to his mouth - he sips quite well.
So, can I skip bottles altogether and go to a sippy cup this early? Can anyone recommend a cup for a bub this young? He can't hold a cup yet, so I would need to hold it, but I suppose he'd learn? Has anyone done this successfully?
Sorry for all the questions ... Just at my wits end to work out how this child will drink when I'm back at the office!
