Do any of you use oral formula for someone that hasn't used a sippy cup in ages? Do I need to go buy a bottle to get the ounces of water right or are the ounces on a measuring cup the same? When we used Neocate Jr he was still using sippers so I didn't have to worry about spills but we don't even own a sippy nor do we have a dishwasher so I would be afraid of not getting everything out of the nooks and crannys...KWIM? Any tips on getting my preschooler to drink this, how to mix it well, and ways to give it to him while minimizing spills without a sippy cup? Our new dining room is even carpeted so he can only have it in the kitchen. Also, he doesn't really drink much at all. If he drinks 4 ounces of anything in an hour I would be surprised nonetheless 6-7 ounces of formula...
Ugh... I just feel like we are back *before* square one...
maybe the use and toss ones? they dont have any nooks to get stuff stuck in and ive found until they chew the lids they are pretty spill proof...or maybe they have the straw sippy cups for older kids, i have one for my 4yr old..maybe just get one for the formula .
thats what im thinking for my son when i get his stuff , just a straw sippy cup..they are pretty spill proof and some keep them cold for hours ..smart if it takes forever for him to drink it all
The ozs on a measuring cup are the same, for a measuring cup they measure fluid ounces. You could always get one of those glass measuring cups in the baking section, you can find them in 1c or 2c sizes and they have LOTS of different measures on there - c., oz., and metric.
