my babe was ebf until 6 months and now at 9 months, she continues to nurse primarily, with some solids to supplement. i have decided to start pumping so I can begin to take some more "me" time while she hangs out with her pappa.

dd has only ever drunk straight from the boob or a glass (the latter not a perfected skill!). i have a few born free glass bottles, never used, and want to buy a stainless steel sippy cup for her. what do you think -- should i skip the bottles completely and give her pumped milk in a sippy, or try the bottle first? what are the dis/advantages of either? is there still a chance she would want to give up the real nipple if she likes the fatter flow of a bottle nipple better?

thanks!
