My LO is only 2 1/2 months but I'm just thinking ahead here. I've read from a variety of sources of how one can skip the bottle altogether if they can get their baby to drink from a cup. That way, you won't have to go through the additional task (an often difficult one) of weaning from the bottle.
Has anyone been successful at this? I BF my baby and sometimes give her an occasional bottle so that when I need to be away from her, she won't starve. I'm still deciding on how long I will be BF my baby, but it would be great that if I do decide to wean early, I can wean her to a cup instead of a bottle. Right now, my goal is to BF at least 6 months and shooting for a year. When can babies start drinking from a cup?
