Weaning.... Advice for bottles/cups/straws?
As DD2 is starting to eat more and more food, I'm thinking of weaning.
Although she started off with only bottles (NICU stay) she has gradually progressed to no bottles. We kept her with one a day and then she started to refuse if I was home. Once she started solids, she would go for about 8 hours before giving into a bottle. Now she refuses it at all. I don't mind nursing in the evening/night/morning but I would prefer if she could drink out of a cup at meals.
I've tried the variety of sippy cups I had with DD1 with pumped milk or water. She has no interest in drinking out of it.
DD1 didn't drink from a cup until she started daycare when I went back to work at one year. I'm not going back to work for at least another 6 month so I will be available when she wants a drink.
Any advice for how to get her to drink out of a cup or do I just keep offering it and hope she eventually starts drinking out of it?
