14 month old not taking bm via sippy @ sitter

Title says it all. What should I do? He is still nursing at night and when I get home but he won't take the milk at the sitter. I am using some of it in food for him. He take water great from a sippy but no milk...? Any suggestions?

Re: 14 month old not taking bm via sippy @ sitter

DS abruptly stopped drinking EBM from a bottle/sippy/cup/anything at 13 months. Tried for weeks to get him back on the wagon! He also refused whole cows milk. Pedi told me that as long as he was nursing a few times a day (he nursed morning, after work, evening, and at least twice at night) it was no big deal.

My daycare was unhappy with this ---- they seemed to worry about him only drinking water. We finally got him to drink plain almond milk at daycare.

It sucked because I was still pumping a ton at work. But he was basically done with EBM. If it wasn't coming straight from the tap, he wasn't interested! Maybe your LO is the same?

Same exact situation! I have tried 3 different sippy cups and he just spills it when its in a regular cup. I am considering trying a bottle it would also help getting him to sleep even though he is going down easy. He took a bottle at the sitter when he was younger but I quit my job and have been home for 8 months- now he is back to a sitter. She did try warming it slightly and still he didn't want it. He spits out cows milk and will only drink water.
