Breastfeeding and Sippy issues

2 days ago, DD took a sippy for the FIRST time, she drank 6 oz of pumped milk out of it (11 months old) Yesterday, she refused to nurse all day and I kept pumping milk for her and putting it in the sippy, then at night she nursed fine. Today now, she is REFUSING to nurse again. I can't keep up on the pumping. Should I just stop giving her the sippy altogether???

ETA: Water isnt an option for her sippy either because she was losing weight a few months ago and she needs the extra calories.

I would too. It's better to have her nursing. I'm dealing with the same issues with my LO of 15months. I have limited her sippy and she does MUCH better.
