How About a Cup of Milk?

8 07 2008

I’ve read in a couple of books that babies can drink straight out of a cup–not a sippy cup, mind you–starting at two months.  And it seems like a good idea to start giving a baby a cup, making it customary, in the same way that starting food in the first year is important, regardless of the fact that the baby is still getting almost all of its nutrition from breastmilk or formula.  And it sounded like fun.  Since Masher already holds his own bottle when Josh feeds him expressed milk now and then, I figured a cup wouldn’t be a big stretch, right?

Wrong.  Apparently, a cup is a HUGE stretch.  Okay, okay, maybe it was more due to Masher’s second tooth erupting through his gum yesterday than it was to the cup itself, but something about trying to drink from a cup sure put Baby Masher into a foul mood!  And he got milk (a.k.a., liquid gold) all over him, much to my dismay.  Maybe we’ll wait and try this again when he’s drinking water.
