is there anything weird about giving a weaned two year old expressed breast milk in a cup?

She weaned when I got prego and now I'm back to producing copious amounts of milk. Is there any reason I shouldn't serve some in a cup to the older child?

  • Go for it. She may not like the taste anymore though.

  • go ahead! when my older ds was 3 he walked in on me pumping for the new I gave him some milk in a cup. That was 3 years ago and he still talks about how good mommys milk is and wants more ( I am currently bfing my 5 month old son) I just explained to him that its the babys milk now

  • nothing wrong with it. its YOUR milk, they're YOUR kids. It also builds up their immune system so theyre less likely to get sick as often. So let them chug

  • Nothing weird about a kid drinking milk from his mother.

  • No, its better for them than cows milk! I give pumped milk to my two year old and sometimes my sisters 5 year old (my sister is ok with it ofcourse).
