Re: Milk or Formula?
I can totally understand why you hate the thought of formula! However, I think that if you find you must supplement, formula is better than cow's milk until your baby turns one, at which point you can switch to whole cow's milk. While formula is not equal to breastmilk, it does mimic it a lot more closely than cow's milk.
Can you start putting really small amounts of thawed BM in the sippy? Like less than an oz a time? That way you won't have to pour a whole lot down the sink if your baby takes a sip and then refuses to drink any more.
