  • Why don't you give it to her in a sippy cup. You should be happy you don't have to break her from a bottle

  • What I wouldn't give to be in your shoes! But no, you can't give a baby cow's milk until they are a year old.

  • I have tried the sippy, but she wont drink formula out of it.... we have many kinds of sippy cups
    she will drink H2O from all of them but just not the formula!

  • Heck, I didn't have a choice on the milk thing. I get WIC and sometimes didn't have enough to last the month and we couldn't afford to buy it so I just would have to make him bottles out of regular cow's milk. Well that is all my mom had so I didn't have a choice. But he was around 10 months when I did it to him and he is fine.
