Toddlerhood is fun, but it’s already proving to be so many more decisions than I thought. When does she go to one nap? When do we convert her crib to a toddler bed? And lately, when will we be done with bottles?
Abbie is still getting three bottles a day – they only way she’ll drink milk. For her water, she’s pretty happy to drink out of any sippy cup we give her, but has so far refused to drink milk out them. She’ll only drink milk out of her bottle…which she is rapidly starting to push away. Last night, for example, she only drank about 2 ounces of milk before bed…then slept though the night, as she normally does. I think our days with the bottle are numbered, which is both great (no more bottles to wash) and worrisome since she has yet to drink milk any other way.
So, as always, I turn to the internet for research and ideas, but more so to other moms. What worked for you? I’m thinking of getting different types of cups to get her to drink her milk. I know she needs to have a certain amount of it per day, but honestly? I don’t think she likes it all that much. I think she only drinks it from a bottle because it’s routine. She’s a great eater so I know she’s getting plenty of calories in her day, but I just worry about her getting enough dairy.
This is the cup we currently use for her water – they’re from munchkin. She loves it we’ve had no issues with it, but she won’t drink milk from it.
I started to look for something different enough that she might drink milk from, and here’s some cups I’ve been looking at:
Any thoughts? I’m just hoping to make sure she gets her milk in each day in the easiest way possible! I’m hoping a non-spill one works, since I want it to be easy on my daycare provider if possible too!
