Dx with silent reflux at 8 months

Tuesday and weaning
So I am super stressed about weaning Jasmine on Tuesday. I would rather wean one feed at a time, but seeing as there are only 2 times that she BF, nap and night time, I feel that she would fight me longer because of the sleep association. Anyways, she really likes to suck, should I use a bottle? She seemed to like to hold them and suck on the nipple in the past. And of course she won't take a paci.... :-( or should I try a soft spout sippy? During the day she usues straw sippy cups, but as I said, for sleeping I know she really likes to suck??????HELP!!!

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Well, if it were me, I'd go ahead and use a sippy. That will keep you from having to do yet another wean from a bottle to a cup. My dd drinks her milk from the Playtex soft spout cups - it requires a more firm suck than her straw cups. Good luck!!

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
I would also recommend the sippy, Lauren really likes the soft spout Gerber cups. Best of luck!

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
I agree with Donnessa. I'd skip right to a sippy. It may take a little while to find one that she likes best, but I'd skip the bottle for sure!

Cooper loves the Nuk trainer sippie. He does great with it and uses it for comfort as well as thirst. They are a little on the pricey side, but have been very well worth it for us. Since they are both bf, it might be good. Expect that she might hate it at first though, since it is a substitute for the real deal she will no longer be getting. I also want to tell you what an encouragement you have been/are to me. It helps me know I can do this bfing thing. It is so hard w/ the reflux/allergies and it is great to see someone who made it work for so long. Thanks!!!
