    No luck - so when I have worked mum has brought her up to school for a feed at recess!!
    Am hoping as we introduce more solids that she will take a sippy or straw cup but I've given up on the bottle for good!

    You are so lucky to have such a wonderful mum! Good on you mum .

    Tan, don't worry, it will work out. Remember she'll be two months older by the start of the next term too! I bet it has felt good getting back to work for the odd spell.

    Well it's taken just under 8mths but we have success!!! Izzy drank 100 mL of milk from a sippy cup with my mum today for the first time!!!!!! Whoohooooooooo!!!!! I actually had a little cry - silly isn't it, I've been wanting this for ages, and need it to work so I can go back to work, and the day is here and I'm a blubbering mess!! Anyway yay for Izzy!!

    Also to those still struggling I have to say that starting solids and giving her water was what did it. She used to just chew on the end but I would keep offering it to her and also cupping the water to her - then the other day I put it in her mouth and she closed her mouth around it properly and sucked!!!
