Re: How did you wean when your LO hasn't ever drank ebm from a cup or bottle?
we introduced a sippy cup as a plaything pretty early, to get DS used to it. i'm not sure exactly how it happened, but we kept offering liquids to him in the cup, and he started drinking from it. magic! the cup was never a substitute for the breast, but instead an addition, if you know what i mean. i never gave him a cup when he asked for the breast, i just gave him the cup at mealtimes.
you might've already considered this, but if your business trips are short enough you might not have to wean. many moms go down to one or two feedings a day around 12 months, so you'd only have to pump a little. just a thought!
