    Default Cow's Milk ?

    My son is now 10.5months old. I am back to working part time (which I have been). He is reverse nursing and has been for quite some time. When I had him in private daycare; She would give him sippy cup of water due to him refusing the breast milk in any container and he does not take formula. She moved away and now I have him in a center. They rarely offer him water and of course he refuses every bottle I send.
    What are your thoughts on starting him on cow's milk and seeing if he will take that from a sippy cup? I hate the thought of him going all day with nothing to drink. He eats cottage cheese in addition to other chesse and yogurt . He has shown no signs of allergies to any foods and eats anything put before him.
    So any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
    Thanks

    WHy not try breastmilk in a sippy instead of a bottle? I know that giving cows milk at all before age 1 isn't recommended.

    I have
    I've tried breastmilk in a sippy cup; a real cup; a straw sippy Nothing
    I've tried cold breastmilk, hot breastmilk, and everything between Nothing
    Grr he's SO stubborn

    I'm really not worried about nutritional as much as hydration. I know he's getting enough breastmilk during the night for nutrients. I just worry that he's not hydrated enough during the day.

    Thanks for replying
