We’ve written a few posts on promoting self feeding in the last year. Take a look at those posts here:
I’m currently in the process of introducing a sippy cup to my son and I think I’ve finally figured it out. The key to getting your baby to do anything is to act like you don’t care. Calm down, take deep breaths and just let them figure it out. Sometimes we are in a hurry because we are going back to work, will be gone for a long weekend or don’t want to nurse in public one. more. time…but if you can, let baby learn at their own pace. Just keep offering, let a mess be made and stay positive and encouraging.
Now excuse me while I go shove a sippy cup in my son’s mouth…he’s starting to bite while nursing and Momma is desperate. PLEASE let him get this SOON. Any other tips from the pros out there??
