Baby Feeding Questions

Hello, new member. I'm Amanda. :) This is a question to any mothers who formula fed.

My son is 8 months old and is somewhat interested to normal foods, but prefers a bottle. Is this normal? He shows no interest in drinking from a cup aswell. When did your child stop drinking formula and start on cups? Thanks for any input.

My first son took awhile. It was after a year before we got him to drink out of cups. It helped to put water in his bottle and only the things he liked in his cup. After awhile he only wanted the cup. Not sure if that's a good move at 8 months, though--not sure how long they need to stay on formula?

I think that's pretty normal. Just go gradually- don't rush him.

Well, he needs formula until 12 months, whether it comes from a bottle or a cup. My daughter unfortunately hung on to the bottle until she was 2; I believe it's recommended to have them off the bottle soon after 12 months.
She only used the bottle for formula, though. When she had water or juice it was in a cup.
