LO is 9mths. She's never taken a bottle. I tried half heartedly when she was around 10 weeks, but she wasn't interested and we didn't have a need.
Now I have a surgery lined up in 3 weeks time. I won't be able to nurse Lo for her mid-morning or her mid-afternoon feed.
My Mum and Dh will be looking after her.
I tried her on a bottle last night. She was vaguely interested but hardly drank anything. I tried her again tonight. Then I tried her sippy cup (which we've recently introduced at mealtimes and she's a little familiar with) but she was not interested. Then I tried just an open cup, and she had a few good mouthfuls (as best as she could manage) before she got tetchy.
So I've had best luck with just a normal cup. Should I persevere with that and just not worry about the bottle? Also we've been doing this in the evening before bed, the idea being that Dh could do it. But I'm wondering if she's tired which is part of why she's tetchy and would do better with me doing it in the middle of the day when she's fresher.
