Hi all! DD is now over 12 months and so we have been informed by her pedi to stop using bottles. I'm a SAHM so she hasn't been using them that much lately anyway, only if I have to be gone for long periods of time. DH and I have a just-us date Thursday (yay!) so DD will be at my parents' for 4 hours or so. She does well with a straw cup and recently with a sippy, however we only ever put water in them. We've tried BM in the straw cup but she never liked it.
What should I recommend for my parents since she's only taken BM from a bottle? She can drink from an open cup with assistance, but only a few sips at a time. And does anyone practice with BM in other cups? It seems silly to pump and put it in a cup just for practice.
In general, I'm having a hard time balancing BF'ing with solids now that she's a year old. I would prefer her to self-wean, but I don't know if I should be avoiding BF'ing in favor of solids, or what. I have no problem BF'ing whenever she wants it, but I don't want to discourage solids since they are important. We've done BLW up to this point. Any advice??
