DS has refused to take a bottle since he was 6 weeks old, so my only hope at this point is a sippy cup...anyone else successfully gone straight from breast to cup? Any suggestions?
That's what I'm planning on doing... I've read a lot of positive things about doing that. I SAH so a bottle has never really been necessary.
we are doing the same thing b/c DS wont take a bottle either. we've been putting small amounts of BM in a sippy and offering it to him a couple times a day for the past month or so. we hold the cup for him, but he likes to play around with the handles; it can get a little messy, but he is definitely more open to the sippy cup than the bottle and it also gets easier with practice! i go back to work in about 2 weeks so we'll see how it goes when DH offers him bigger amounts.
btw, we tried a couple different kinds--nuby, playtex, nuk, born free--and the nuby seemed to be the easiest for him to drink from.
