So some of you may know that I've had a lot of trouble weaning DS on to a bottle. We tried all kinds of traditional bottles, sippy cups, straw cups, plastic cups, glasses/tumblers and he wouldn't drink EBM or formula out of any of them, even when I went back to work and he was being looked after by my parents and childcare, he still just would not drink..........until.....
I tried this straw cup....

The name of it is in the photo. I won't write it so this isn't searchable.
He drank straight out of it! I'm still having trouble stopping him from breast feeding (he's such a mummy's boy) but I know this is the start of him weaning - which is really important as he's not putting on enough weight (he's only 7kgs)
He's 11 months old and I've been trying for 6 months to get him to drink something else other than breastfeeding.
I thought I would start this thread for anyone else who is having the same trouble - there is hope in sight, even if it's not this cup (but give it a go - I highly recommend it), they do get older and they do adapt - even if they are creatures of habit!
