Want to breastfeed but need some help? Mumsnet's Breastfeeding pages are crammed with honest advice.
DD (5 months) has got a horrible cold & has been really struggling to feed (either breast or bottle).Today she was hardly getting anything out of her bottle so in desperation I took the teat off & gave it to her like a cup.She did well & didn't seem to mind having it this way so I am thinking I may as well use her doidy cup instead of a bottle but is that ok? I'm worried about her choking.
It's fine I think.In fact my old HV used to recommend that with BF babies you skip bottles and just go straight to cups. Can't remember why, but anyway...
Doidy cup will be fine.
Yes, that's fine. It's no more likely that she would choke using a cup than a bottle - and you will be with her the whole time you are feeding her anyway, so don't worry
