I have several questions and I don't want to clog the board with many threads, so I'll just post them all here.

Hi Juliana!


1) We started solids (baby oatmeal) a few days ago.

My LO is 9 months and never had a bottle either.


I started giving sippy cup with tiny bit of water a few months ago. I started with the playtex one. She had no idea how to use it but liked to play with it. So, I tried the NUBY one and walla- she would just bite down a little and water came out. Now she gets how to use a sippy cup and is able to use the harder spout one.


I think it comes out faster in NUBY and she can control flow better in playtex one.


I also- mixed fruit in the oatmeal once I introduced them- or water

Jackson never used bottles, and he now drinks water/juice from a sippy like a pro!


I never used baby oatmeal, so I can't help you there :)


RE: the preferred side - my son now prefers the left side.

We only ever mixed the cereal with fruit or veggies with Jason. We started with the fruits and veggies, then just added some cereal to the purees to thicken them a bit. I was way too much of a lazy butt to pump just for that and for sure not going to introduce formula just for that.
