Week one of weaning Emily is currently in progress. Emily’s doctor suggested to put the milk into a sippy cup so she doesn’t rely on a bottle. Luckily, Emily has always enjoyed her sippy cup and thankfully she seems to like the taste of milk. Unfortunately, while Emily can normally blast through a bottle of milk, the milk takes a lot longer to disappear in a sippy cup. The quest to get Emily to completely drink her afternoon milk starts around 2pm in the afternoon and ends just after dinner. Of course, I am now worried that Emily will never get enough milk as compared to when she was nursing. Consequently, my mommy paranoia kicks in as I Google “can babies get osteoporosis from a lack of calcium?” and other ridiculous searches. Thankfully, it seems as though this is a common problem with babies and you just have to keep trying……and that’s what we’ll do.
