My daughter has been nursing for over 9 months now. Recently, I decided to wean her, so I only nurse once all day, at 7am (but I pump so she still has breastmilk). She refuses the bottle, or a sippy. I make sure to feed her 3 times a day with baby-food, and I am trying to teach her how to take finger snacks too. Other than trying to get a tip into her mouth, or letting her handle the bottle/sippy to become familiar with it, I am kinda out of options. The problem is: she hate textured foods or anything in her mouth that's unfamiliar. I have even tried giving her a cap-full of milk/juice/water (because she likes drinking from a cap) and then showed her while I poured it into the sippy and gave it to her...nope, didn't want.
How would you go about introducing the bottle and sippy to a baby that flat our refuses?
