Re: Sippie Cup and BM vs. Water
I taught Lilah to drink out of a straw cup by putting some water in a straw, putting the straw in her mouth and then letting the water into her mouth. Then I let her suck on the straw in a cup. She was very excited about it Only took a couple of minutes and she's 10 months old. She likes to drink out of a cup the regular way, but cannot be in charge of it herself.
Then I bought her a Playtex cup with a straw and she just chewed on the straw. I took the lid off, gave her some water out of the cup without the straw, put the lid back on and she's been a pro ever since.
The Nuby straw cups are very hard to drink through. I tried and could not get any water through it. The playtex ones aren't too bad, and still spill proof. Lilah actually puked after trying to suck water through the Nuby straw once.
Lilah 10/08 nursed 25 months
Beatrix 01/11 nursed 30 months
