Babies: 6 - 9 Months


My bby girl is almost 7mts (on the 15th) anyways :) I breastfeed her & I want to transition to formula but she doesn't like the bottles I have..I have playtex drop ins with Natural latch & Medela (Note: one day I did successfully give her formula in the Medela bottle..but it took awhile) 4oz to be exact..can we skip the bottle and go to a sippy cup?..I just tried the playtex again tonight and she fussed and screamed bloody murder lol [-( I ended up giving her my boob after that :-/


  • Go for it. Try a Nuk soft top sippy cup. See if she can master the bite & suck. Sippy cups do require some trial & error. You can always syringe or spoon & cup the formula.

    I know DS was picky about nipples on bottles but was thrilled to drink formula or breast milk through a straw.

    Give it a shot & see what works.

  • You can definitely skip the bottle and go straight to a sippy. A lot of babies are transitioning to sippies around 6-7 months.
