My daughter is almost 9 months old & nurses 4-5 times a day and has 3 small meals of baby food. She is begining to drink a good amount of water from a sippy cup during her meals. I was thinking of putting breastmilk in her cup instead of water. Has anyone done this with their little one? I think it would be better for her to have more of my milk than water, but i'd hate to unknowingly cause any confusion for her.
Thanks in advance :]

Water is good for them to still have, but there's nothing wrong with breast milk in a sippy too. :)

YES! It's fine to put breast milk in a sippy cup, or even a regular cup with no lid. you can also use it to put on her cereal, or mix in with oatmeal instead of just water.
