How Do You Get Breastfed LO S To Drink More From Cup Bottle

ssmith - March 4

My dd has never taken a bottle, and is only now SORT OF tolerating a sippy cup with water or diluted juice. She's 10 months old now, and I will be weaning her to formula and whole milk soon. She has had formula before, but only as a sort- of supplement to br___tmilk and therefore has only ever taken 2oz MAX. Will she always be a "sipper" or will she eventually learn to drink more oz's at a sitting? It seems like formula / bottle fed babies are already used to drinking like 6 oz at once...so there's no problem. At this age, aren't they supposed to drink like 18-20 oz in a day? If I wean dd, I don't see how I could possibly get her to drink that much....that's a h__l of a lot of "sips."
