Our pediatrician told me it’s time to transition our son from his bottle. He uses a sippy cup at mealtimes, but I have kept giving him his milk feedings in a bottle. I figured there’s no rush – he’s had so much transition in the last few months. He likes to have his milk warmed up, and it’s easier with a bottle. I tried giving him his milk in a sippy cup, but he turned it away. The milk did not flow as easily as it does from his bottle. I then removed the valve, but the milk seemed to pour out too quickly.
I think I may have found a solution: BornFree’s Trainer Cups. I can heat the milk in the cup using our bottle warmer, just like his bottles. It has a soft spout. The milk flows out but not too quickly. I tried it for the first time today. He pulled it away from his mouth to look at it, then put it right back in and kept drinking. I think we have a winner!
