We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

Any reason 3mth ds can't use a cup for the occasional EBM feed?

Well, he took a bottle sort of ok at 6 weeks, but now can't cope at all. Just doesn't know what to do with it.

I could persist and try with the bottle (using TT Closer to Nature)... but I tried him on dd's TT First cup today and he seemed to be able to drink from it. But it seems wrong for a baby to use a cup rather than a bottle. Is there any real reason he can't use this if I - heaven forbid - actually go out?

Or should I try the NUK one? Will he be able to drink enough from a cup? Do I have to introduce a bottle (if I want to go out I mean, obv I could continue to bf)?

DD never had a bottle but was fine with a cup for the odd drink of EBM here and there.

Ooh, going out. I remember that.

Cheers, that's fab - anyone else got any advice?

And yes, I am notsure how/if/when this hypothtical 'going out' will occur, but it'd be nice if perhaps they could! grin
