|What have you got for me to try this morning?|
Ok he is not little anymore. My arm sometimes falls asleep now with his head on it and if he angles it right it kind of hurts. He sprawls out in my lap, and sometimes he tries to look out the window and forget he is eating. He now throws his bottle on this last slurp. But n those 10 mins it takes him to fill up on the bottle, I love it. I treasure it. I still love to hold my little man and feed him. I am working on getting me ready for his transition. Now it is convincing him that he doesn't need a bottle and figuring out a new night time routine without a bottle. UGH!
I have spent oh so much time on the internet reading reviews about sippy cups, beginner cups, straw cups, spill proof, expensive and cheap ones. Reviews and reviews of parents who love their sippy cups. I have been off to the store to look for these sippy cups and come home to try it out and see if he will take it. He has come to enjoy one cup so far. Now my hubby gave me the idea that he would take a straw sippy cup because of those pouches we feed him. He sucks them up.
|I love these pouches and the grains they put in them. My little man is eating better because of them.|
He drank the whole 4oz. Wow, so the next morning I did the same thing. This time I changed it up a bit and added a berry mixture with spinach and milk. Put it on this stray and walked away. The kid picked it up and drank it all gone. He is getting his milk, fruit and veggie in a serving. Love it! I try not to get too excited in front of him. Letting him think it is his idea.
Well today. I put the sippy on his tray with water and some lemon in the water. I left it there while I was cooking dinner. He was playing around and I saw him reach up and then grab the sippy and drink 2 oz from it. I about died seeing him do that. He has not taken water before in it. Now I am on the hunt to get another one of these sippy cups to have on hand. So now the next thing for me to do is get rid of the bottle. I am working on it. But at least he is drinking sippy during the day right?
The big complaint about these cups is the straw is too short you can't get the last ounce in this cup and he totally let's me know he has another ounce of smoothie and needs help. So we take of the lid and let him drink the rest with some help.
