Re: EBF and starting the sippy cup

Emma is EBF, and she cant get the hang of the regular sippy. She doesnt understand that she has to tip it up to get the liquid out. I think probably because she has only had a bottle 4 or 5 times and so the whole concept of tip up = nourishment escapes her (lol).

We just picked up a NUBY sipster that has a silicone straw, and she's got the hang of it DOWN PAT after just a day! I should have tried that a long time ago.

Oh, and DD is almost 8 months.

Thats exactly what we used!

Wow it seems that a straw is the answer for EBF babies!
