    My MW said just formula but I give Sophie a little bit if I think she's a bit constipated.

    we were told just to give water if it was a boiling day so haven't had to worry about that lol. Have started giving Holly water in a free flow cup now when we are eating our tea in prep for starting blw soon.

    I bought an advent 1 from TK Maxx last week and it has got a teat on so its exactly like a bottle but with handles on.....it can then change into a normal cup. I gave LO it with a couple of oz of cooled boiled water in on sat just for her to play with (planning on blw) She loved it and I was shocked at her reactions....she got it in her mouth a few times and sucked. I got a very cute video of her using it. I dont think she actually like the water as she kept spitting it out but she enjoyed playing with the cup.

    My baby has water every day in-between feeds since day one. She is ff. She used to turn her nose up but now she loves it.

    Hoping she will continue to enjoy it as a toddler xx

    We use one of the ones with a hole in the spout. HV suggested using that kind instead of one like a bottle. Though Holly would find it hard after being used to a bottle but she just picked it up with both handles, tipped it back and drank away like she has been doing it forever! Hasn't had a problem going back to using a bottle for her feeds either. She does tend to get rather wet though as it is also great fun to shake the cup and shower us all at tea times!
