Avery has strictly nursed for almost 8 months now(I can't believe how fast she is growing up). We have been trying to get her to take a bottle for awhile now, but have had no success. She absolutely hates formula and refuses to drink it, but she also wouldn't even take a bottle with breast milk, especially from me. So, yesterday I decided to try breast milk in her sippy cup. She actually drank it!! Yay! Don't get me wrong, I'm so thankful she primarily nurses...but it would be nice for her to drink her milk in some other way! We are certainly making progress over here and for that...I am very thankful!

It looks like we are going to just SKIP right over the bottle!

And...she is doing much better everyday! We are so thankful for prayers!

I hear ya, Kamrynn is the same way! No bottle for this baby! At least I know there is hope - I'll have to try breastmilk in a sippy cup when she's bigger. Hope it keeps going well!!

So happy that Avery is feeling better! I'm sure that was scary for you! Love the sippy cup! Good job skipping the bottle! I'm sure it would be another hassle trying to get rid of it later. :) She is such a doll! I love looking at your pictures!
