Re: How to start weaning when baby is in daycare?
That does sound like a confusing daycare! Hat do they do with kids who are not ready for sippy cups/open cups at age one? Keep them in the infant room?
Just to clarify, are you asking about how to encourage the transition to a sippy cup/open cup, or are you asking about reducing the amount of breastmilk your baby drinks? If the latter, then the answer is that until a year, you shouldn't be working on cutting down on his breastmilk intake. Babies are supposed to remain mostly breastfed (or formula-fed) until the first birthday, so if you were to cut down on baby's milk intake at this point you'd want to replace it with bottles of formula, at least for the next 1.5 months. Not much of a change from what you're doing, in terms of what baby is offered at daycare.
