    I would do whatever suits him and you best. Hannah has a bottle in the mornings and the rest of the day she gets her formula in a sippy cup (but only because she downright refuses to take it any other way :rofl:) Does he get other fluids in a beaker during the day?

    You could always try it...will probably take a lot longer to drink from the beaker so may not get as much milk that way? with Hannah it takes an entire day to get the 6 ounces down her :lol:

    I really want to get Alasdair off the bottle by 12 months (morning and night feed) so I decided to tackle the morning feed nice and early. I put it in a beaker and he drank 40mls and screamed the house down! seriously unhappy. I have a serial comfort sucker on my hands. I think I should have probably tried earlier.

    that's a good idea. I should probably do that but I'm a bit scared of the consequences and of having a grumpy baby all day!
