    how many times do you nurse her when you are with her? WIll she take anything from a cup? Have you tried the BM in the cup?

    i usually nurse her 5-6 times a day...i tried a sippy cup and she gets to sucking and forgets how...but i was worried about her liking the cup and not wanting to nurse or vice versa...

    Its frusterating and your not alone. My DD is 13 months and has decided she no longer likes the bottle either. I would try the sippy cup. You can get some with a soft nipple like top (its shaped like a sippy cup top but is silicone I think) some others are hard plastic. You might want to try the both and see which she likes better.

    For learning to use a sippy I thought the Nuby cups were the best. The spout is very soft and flexible, plus they are cheap at WalMart/Target. Connor really got the hang of the sippy at about month 10.

    So long as she's eating some solids while you are gone and her wets (total) are still looking good, nutritionally *I* don't think you have much to worry about.

    Well Congrats to you and to your little one. I hope the sippy cup works. I agree with the previous poster If she is eating solids and having wet/dirty diapers and you nurse before and after work She should be okay. I know by that age my DD was down to about 4 feedings a day. So if you feed in morning, as soon as you get home, and before bed thats 3 which is good (not sure how many times she is feeding right now) And who knows she'll probably surprise you and take the sippy. Maybe if the work situation is new she is refusing the bottle because of the change in schedual and once she is use to it she'll take it again.

    P.S. don't worry about spelling. As I'm sure you can tell from my post. Its not one of my strong suits
