Bottle or sippy cup?

DD will be spending the night at my mothers the night of her first birthday. This will be her first time away from me that will last longer than just a few hours. I'm sending plenty of bm along, but should I send her with a bottle or sippy cup for it? She still nurses 1-2X a night.

Whatever she normally takes your breastmilk from when you're away from her is what I would send this time.

Whatever she will take breast milk from.

Usually it would be a bottle, but she hasn't had one in months.

If she drinks well with a cup, have your mom try that first but send bottles too just in case.

No bumping in this group unless its on the second page.
send both see which she prefers. She'll need 1-1.25oz per hr shes there in bottles/cups of 3oz every 2.5-3hrs

I would send both. I usually do and now he refuses both. He will only drink water from a straw and eat solids while he's away.
