Hey all! My son is 4 months old and I am transitioning from breastfeeding to formula ( I know I suck :( but work is interfering with my supply ) but anyways I use slow flow nipples on his bottle and he seems frustrated and upset when feeding...could it be he isn't getting enough and I need to go to med or fast flow??? Advice please! :))
You are not behind...dont worry. lol Avg age is 6 months old. But they do make cups 3+ months. I started my 3 kids on cups at 3 months old. When they could start to play a bit I just added water in a sippy cup and gave them to play with it on the floor. And once they figured out they could drink from it, we started using it for formula a few times a days.
I have been lucky though, not all babies will accept a cup over a bottle. All 3 of my girls weaned off of bottles by 6 months, they only had for bed time, then at 8, 9 and 10 months old my kids weaned 100% of off the bottle.
What is the avg age to start sippy cups?! Am I behind??? Lol I'm a first time mom so I'm learning
I started using med flow around 4 months and then fast flow around 6-7 months. Not often though. My kids were using mostly sippy cups at 3-4 months old, just a bottle before sleep time. lol
Oh wow, that's awesome! He is starting to hold his bottle now so I'll just play it by ear and see when it's okay to go to the next step. Thanks so much for your help! I'm so appreciative of everyone on this site!!!
