  • u should give her a bottle and let her just play with it... she'll end up drinking it. that what i did with my daughter, she ate so much and my breastmilk didnt come in that fast towards the end

  • Just keep trying the sippy cups and eventually she will take one. Try all the different ones until you find one that she likes. I have heard of some bf babies preferring straw cups over the other kinds. Don't give up. She will eventually take to it. Another thing you can do is give her food and then nurse. Maybe she will fill up a little more on food and take less breast milk. Just keep trying.

  • IMO, she's still nursing because she still needs it. I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish.... full weaning, or just the ability for her to take sippy cup and still nurse. Just keep a sippy of water available all throughout the day, and eventually, she will get the hang of it.
