My youngest DS is over 9 months old now and I just cannot get him to drink from ANYTHING except me!
He now eats food too, but all drinks are from me so he's still bf about 8-10 times per day.
We've tried everything!! He kicks off, screaming and crying and pushes my hands away every time I try any kind of bottle/cup. I've had various other people try but still no luck. I've tried not breast feeding him for several hours but he still refused water/formula/expressed milk.
Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?!!
Had exactly that problem. Keep offering but pretend you don't care if they take it or not - try not to cajole or get wound up about it. Think of it as offering a new toy that they will eventually take to. At some point they just take a drink and act like was their idea all along
I also found that Nuk learner bottles succeeded where all other sippy cups had failed.
I found babycup was the only one my middle one would take and I've started my youngest on it too and it's going well. I sat and drank from one aswell...I probably looked a bit mad doing so as they are very much baby-sized! But they seemed keen to copy and it worked. Little one especially loved copying siblings. Worth a try, keep offering, with just a tiny drop in to start with.
