    Just to add, my DD is an awesome eater and drinks water at daycare so I wasn't too concerned about her not drinking ebm. They provide a good variety of food, and feed her dinner which I provide plus I still feed 2-4x overnight.

It's frustrating though thinking if I go out she won't go to bed as she doesn't have a feed...
    I have recently had some success in using a pigeon magmag spout cup taking small amounts of water or juice, but not ebm or formula.
