My baby is 8 mths old and breastfed with no bottle. She is on 3 meals and has 110gms each meal. Gaining 80-100gms a week healthy and happy. She feeds a few times overnight as we co-sleep but in the day has dropped feeds to about every 4 to 5 hours and they are pretty quick. I am happy to wean at 1 year when I go to work. Am trying to intro the cup but worried this is not ok. ..any thoughts? What should I introduce to my daughters feeding routine?

  • Tommy teppi or whatever the bran is has a cup made for this reason. They are great and are sold at woollies or Coles


  • I’d start her on a soft spouted sippy cup and some small snacks in between meals.

  • Definitely some snacky type foods and also a sippy cup (try the soft spout one)!
