There really is no magic date when you should start the transition from bottles to sippy cups. I feel that every child is different in their developmental process that you would know when it’s a perfect time for them to make the switch. With Kaia, she began as an early eater at 4 months old, so she began drinking from a sippy cup then. It was challenging in the beginning on finding a cup that she would drink from, but with many trials and errors, here are some tips that can help you switching from bottles to sippy cups.
Breastfeeding is a very demanding job for mothers that sometimes we need a break. Whether it’s just to take a shower or meet up with a girlfriend for lunch, it’s great to have a helping hand when it comes to feeding your baby with a bottle. Every day I pump extra milk so that my husband can help me during the nights and when I need to run errands. It’s such a huge help to me and my husband loves the bonding time he gets with Kaia, so it works out.
