Re: Breastmilk in a sippy cup? Any success mamas?

I would leave a sippy that he will take water from and leave one with BM. If he gets fussy enough he will take it and if not he will prob just reverse cycle. No need to stress he old enough now you dont need to stress about it

I was wondering about this too. The idea that if he is desparate enough he'll take it makes sense to me. I'll have to try that!

What temp is the BM in the sippy? If it is coming out of the fridge he may not like that it is cold. Have you tried giving him warm milk in the sippy?

I've been trying sippy cups w/my milk, but he's not having it. He'll drink water from a sippy, but not breastmilk. This makes it hard when my dh needs to put him to sleep when I'm at school late. Anyone have success w/this? Any specific kind of sippy you liked best?

Thanks
This SO makes sense to eliminate the bottle. Why bother, you'd be taking it away soon anyway. I tried to explain this to a friend just last week.
I used glass Born Free with the sippy topper.
