    Question cup feeding?

    Has anyone tried this? I used it for the twins when they were small----I am not sure where I can buy the small flexible cup though.....

    That is what my LLL leader recommended when my DD was striking. Small paper cups ... also the little medicine cups on top of things like Nyquil and such were recommended (obviously make sure it's new or very well washed!).

    I know somebody that makes breastpumps makes them but I couldn't find them on-line at all. I am a big cheapy and I would rather not spend $6.. on special breastfeeding plastic cups. When the box of dixie cups is $2.99 for 300...
    maybe less at sams club if you don't get the special ones with mickey mouse on them.

    let us know if they work! That way we can tell other moms if they ask.
