I'm not sure if I posted this in the right section, but I thought since we are on solids, that maybe someone else that has a LO that takes solids would have some advice or has maybe been through this.
Okay, I need some advice and help. I give my DD EBM during the day while I am working. She is now 7.5 months old and I am convinced she hates the bottle now. It can be such a fight to get her to drink one. She usually drinks 2 ounces and that is all she wants and you have to work with her to drink the rest. Also, she doesn't do well drinking a bottle while she is "fully" awake, which drives me crazy.
So my question is, has anyone had success from weaning their baby from a bottle to a sippy cup, straw, cup or just anything else besides a bottle. I can get her to drink from a cup or sippy cup, but maybe 1 ounce at a time.
She has been sick with a cold and has lost a little weight, which worries me. I even got desperate last night and gave her breast milk from a medicine dropper with her solids.
I need something that she will think it is fun to drink her breastmilk or formula from (I usually have to supplement a little formula, as I don't always pump enough for her).
Also, has anyone that provides EBM or formula had success as to getting your LO to drink more than 3-4 ounces at one time? I would think at 7.5 months, she should be able to drink 6-8 ounces ever 4 hours.
Any advice or success stories would be great!!
