  • how old is this child? It is obvious that they are not ready to wean if they are still waking up in the middle of the night for a feeding..

  • what time do u put him to bed? maybe he needs to go a little later and have a snack before, so he doesnt wake up hungry at 5am

  • I would give him a bottle.

  • They have narrow sippy cups with the rubber tips, it looks a lot like a bottle but the tip is slightly different. We started our 14 month old on it around 6 months. We only used it for juice and water in between her three bottles of formula a day. By 7 months she just wanted the sippy cup. Now she likes to use the Nuby sippy cups. She also has a few that have lids with straws. During meal time she uses a regular cup.

  • I've heard to start the process of going into sippy cups, that you can put the formula into that as opposed to the bottle.

  • I started the process at 6 months. By 8 months he stop taking the bottle and just sippy. I had to pump breastmilk so I would just put it in a sippy cup.
