Yep, we've been BF for 11 months todayHoly cow, my baby is almost 1 year- that time flew by!!

I have a question. I'm thinking of replacing Colin's 5pm nursing session with a sippy cup of BM. He usually nurses really quick during this session (5-10 minutes). Then he has supper around 6pm. My friend began replacing one of her DD's daycare bottles with a sippy (also BM) around this age, so that got me thinking. Colin also drinks very well from his sippy, so I know he'd be able to drink it fine.

He nurses 5 times a day right now and I'd love to cut that back a little and get him on a cup. Is this how we slowly transition? Thanks.

I just wanted to say congrats on making it 11 months. I dont have any advice my little one is alittle over 3 months. The longest I have nursed was 3 1/2 months. I plan to make it as long as possible with my little man.

Congratulations!

I never did bottles regularly with either of the girls, so we never really did breastmilk in a sippy. That sounds like a good way to start transitioning though if you want to wean him. Some babies get really used to getting either formula or breastmilk from a bottle and won't take it from a cup, so some kids are just stubborn about it!
