Well she seems to be interested in food, so I am going to get some Rice cereal for this month to try a little of. She no longer ejects things like tylenol.
I am going to get a few bottles and a sippy today. I have been trying to transition her into her own crib too. But I would continue to cosleep if she needed to. Not sure I want to reverse cycle though. I have bi-polar disorder and need more sleep than most and not sure I want to mess with her sleep schedule (she sleeps from 11 pm to about 3 or 4 am generally. If I have bi-polar episodes I will have to wean her completely to formula. I have gone through that before with an older dd and it was not good.
Thanks for the advice ladies. I just have to work at it...
Some bottles to try : Avent, Born Free and Dr. Brown's. They aren't cheap, but the tend to be more readily accepted by breastfed babies.
You could also try a sippy cup (with the valve removed if necessary) or a straw cup.
As well, read up on reverse cycling. It is possible for a baby to do all of their nursing at night and to have their long stretch of no nursing during the day. You pretty much need to co-sleep for this to work though. I've never reverse cycled a baby as young as five months, but it's very possible.
