    Default Formula in a sippy cup?

    Has anyone done this ? im clueless as to if its possible?

    my DD takes bottles sometimes, only when im not around I wanted to slowly wean her from the breast (7months) so by the time i go back to work and she is (11months) in daycare part time she will be conpletely on breast. but she wont take them from me anymore and my DH at work so no one else can do it.
    she is on solid food also so doesnt breastfeed as much during the day anyway and also has a sippy cup with water with her meals. Can i try a sippy cup with formula to slowly wean her ? any experience with this?
    i mean it wont be long till she can have cows milk anyway but until then what to do !

    sorry: edit: completely off breast before i go back to work.

    If sin takes just sissy cup with water, I don't see the harm in athe least trying it with formula. Dd has hers in a sippy cup but she is 2 and we have only disposed of bottles in the last couple of months.

    My little guy didn't like bottles but would take water from a sippie cup so I tried it with formula around 7mths and he was great with it so we went from breastfeeding to sippie cups and skipped the bottle time - worked out really well for childcare etc!

    We used the Heinz ones (from supermarket) with handle each side as seemed easiest for him to hold - they still have to suck but not as hard as the ones with valves, a little will spill out if dropped/turned up side down though. And I washed them on top shelf of dishwasher Much easier than bottles!
