9 mos old juniper finally figured out how to take a sippy cup! yay! i put a little water in it, and she's been taking tiny gulps throughout the day, but doesn't operate it fully on her own, she wants me to help her (she IS a baby after all )
anywho, i think it's stupid to give her water. i don't want to fill her up on water when i have 3 months worth of pumped milk in the freezer. should i put breast milk in her sippy so she learns to use it, AND gets some nutrition? would it get yucky after an hour or so? would she try to drop out of a nursing session if she is getting this extra milk? i am not interested in the sippy replacing nursing at this point. maybe at 12 mos, that could be a way to wean out (cuz i don't really know how that works, either)...
has anyone ever tried this, or is it a stupid idea? i have ALL THAT MILK, and she won't take a bottle. aside from yogurt, i think sippy is the way to use it up. (?)
thanks in advance, moms!
