USING A STRAW?? Rss

Hi, my son 8 1/2 mnths has just starting drinking out of a straw but any attempts to use a cup fail.
I am worried about him using the straw as a way to get fluids and rejecting the cup later on.
Can you give your baby's/toddlers drinks soley out of a straw????

Mum to Jai and Chase!

Hi New mum,
Try not to worry about how your son is getting his fluids, I don't think it matters what type of device you use just as long as they're drinking. My son weaned himself off the breast at 10 months and wouldn't take a bottle, the only way he would take his milk was through a straw cup.
My suggestion is to keep offering him the cup, I'm sure he'll get the hang of it in no time. Goodluck.
Cheers,
