    So I've given up with bottles now and thinking to try Kynon with a cup instead, anyone recommend a good cup to try when still exclusively breast feeding?

    Is it a sippy cup??

    I'm not sure what to recommend but the nhs childsmile woman says now your not supposed to use ones you need to suck (bad for their mouths) she left me a tommee tippee one that doesn't need to be sucked. loool

    Check the flow coz some are fast flowing.

    Good luck

    :)

    They gave me one of those too, just not tried it yet but thought a cup might be another option instead of a bottle if I go for a night out.

    Give that one a try Sarah, i dont think there is any age restrictions. If he takes it, thats a start eh!

    Try & even offer it often throughout the day (first couple of times they normally wont take something new like dummy/cup) keep trying it tho

    Yeah I'll give it a go, do you think I should put breast milk in it or something different like water or formula?

    Smith - its a tommee tippee cup we were given by a weaning programme (they come out to your house)

    Yeah Sarah try breastmilk first, then water.

    Let us know how you get on

    I have always used a sippy cup with Georgie hun and it's been great!

    As a side note - breastfed babies have the ability so use a straw cup - something to do with having to suck harder to get milk than a bottle fed baby. So if all else fails and you need a night off give it a try x
