so my son turned 1 on Saturday. We still BF and will continue to do so until HE wants too. He does get real food that i make but not much so its almost strictly the Breast. When can i introduce a open cup or cup with straw? it will only have breastmilk at first. I am not going to be introducing cows milk because thats gross, we dont even drink it at home. it will be either Rice or Hemp milk, water and thats it. Its just a question no bashing.Answer Question

Did you know that breast feeding is not beneficial after six months?

My son BF until 20 months - I handled it as you are, he got other foods/drinks & I waited for him to self-wean. I think an open cup is asking for spilt breast milk! I used Avent bottles & sippy cup lids & my son did great with those. If you don't want to do a sippy cup, get one with a flip up straw. At 12 months, he's going to spill an open cup for sure!
