My DD is starting to have some ebm and juice from a sippy cup. She is 9.5 mo. She did well with it the first couple of times but now thinks it is great fun to blow the liquid out of her mouth.
She does this with all liquid now, whether it is on a spoon or in a regular cup.

How do I teach her or help her discover the joy of swallowing juice? It is particularly frustrating because I am trying to give her probiotics since her round of abx...

Help?

I say give her probiotics in a syringe, or mixed up in some food rather than juice. Juice is a bunch of unneeded sugar, especially for a 9.5 month old.

FWIW, we give DS small sips of water out of an open glass with his solid meals, and it works great.

Thanks... I may try the syringe although she thinks it is torture!

I mix the probis with ebm, not juice. The juice is just for once in a while and it is mostly water...
