Question EBF and starting the sippy cup

My ds has been ebf, on pretty much just boobs. There have probably been only about 10 times I have pumped for him to have a bottle. He hasnt had a bottle in probably 5 months. He is now 10 months. When I give him a sippy, he really just chews on it. When did your dc start the cup?

My DS is 10 mo too and I have been trying the sippy cup for a month or so. He chews on it too. Maybe try a straw. That seems to work a little bit better for us.

My DD is only 5 months and wont suck on the sippy. (We have the same problem with a bottle) BUT she will drink EBM or water from a regular plastic cup. Maybe something to try.

Yes - STRAWS!!! I tried every sippy cup possible with my DD, who is 10 1/2 months. I tried her on one that has a straw and she got it right away!

I think its because she didn't understand having to tip back the cup, whereas a bottle fed baby may do????

My son was bottle fed and had the exact same reaction. The only sippy that worked for him was the type with the straw.

My daughter Avery on the other hand was also EBF and took to the sippy cup like a fish in water at around 5 months.

I think every baby is different...

Re: EBF and starting the sippy cup

DD is almost 10 months old. She takes a sippy pretty good. The only thing we put in it is water. We started by giving her sips of ours out of a plain cup. She liked the cold water so much, so we started her on a sippy. She only gets it every once in a while. (Mainly at "dinner") We use the Avent one. That's the only one that DS would take and he was FF.

My ds was ebf too no bottles, he is 10m and uses the Nuby sippy cup that they sell at WalMart like a pro. It has a flip up silicon straw. He got it right away. Good luck!
