Hi! My little girl is coming up to four months and with the hot weather I’m conscious that I should be thinking about offering her some cooled boiled water as well as her formula. Is it better to offer this in a sippy cup or in her bottle? Many thanks!

Hi, there’s no guidance either way, so it's personal preference really. A cup might help them to start to learn sipping, and make sure they don’t take too much. A bottle might be easier but they might take too much, and displace the formula they need more of. You could try a small open cup, like a doidy cup, which is angled and easier.
