are you giving your baby a sippy cup regularly??

Karsyn has a sippy cup sometimes with a little diluted juice/water in it, and sometimes we give it to her in a bottle. I told DH I wanted to start giving her a sippy cup more often and he was like uhh is that a good idea? He said well if she has a sippy cup, then she will be used to drinking from that and have a different latch while breastfeeding. I hadn't really thought about it that much, but once he said it I started watching her with the sippy. She can drink out of it, but she mostly likes to bite and pull on the spout! She doesn't do this with the bottle......and she's started doing this to my nipple lately too! I don't think I'm going to give her a sippy as much for the next 3 months.....I want her to keep nursing like normal and NOT bite me! lol I plan to stop nursing at a year (if she'll let me! lol) so then I'll give her a sippy more often.

Did that make sense? lol
