My LO is 4 months old this week. She is EBF, which is great, but here in lies the problem. She is used to nursing to sleep so now that she is in the 4 mo. wakeful she will only eat if it is nap time or night time. She falls asleep before she gets enough. My mom even mentioned that she heard her stomach growling, yet she will not eat during play time. I have tried! DH and I have tried introducing the bottle, but she is very opinionated about it. We are going to keep at it, but I don't have a whole lot of hope for that.
I'm considering introducing a sippy cup of breast milk. I will supervise her, of course, but I though that maybe she would drink breast milk from a sippy since it is not like a bottle, and she might even enjoy drinking during play time. We go for her well check this week and I was going to talk to the doc about introducing cereal, but I'd rather stay with breast milk until 6 months before introducing solids.
Any thoughts on this? Does it interfere with BFing? I have read that the sippy can be introduced this young with water or BM. She needs BM. Thoughts?
