Can ASIP Be Given To Babies Aged 2 Months Using Sippy Cup Media?
, I want to ask. Can ASIP be given to babies for 2 months using sippy cup media?
Hello Melvinda, Thank you for the question.
Sippy cup is a drinking cup used by children to consume drinks and not spill. According to the collegiate recommendations of pediatricians in America, sippy cup should be given when the baby is 6-9 months old. Thus, if your child is 2 months old, you are not recommended to use a sippy cup to give milk ASI (ASIP). You can give ASIP with a milk bottle. Before using any bottle / pacifier, you should make sure your baby can suckle well from your breasts. Please do the following tips:
Make sure you use a soft teat that matches the size of your baby's mouth. You may need to experiment with milk teats so you can determine which baby nipples are right for your baby.
If your baby refuses to drink from a pacifier, don't force your baby; You can try giving milk with pacifiers again some time later.
