Sure you can. I've given my 3 year old the sippy cup I pumped that my baby refused quite a few times and she liked it. I barely get 2 oz when I pump or I'd give it to her often. Get those good white blood cells in her!

my husband drinks about 10-15oz a day. I usually pump in the afternoon to keep an oversupply and just put it in the refrigerator, he drinks it with whey protein. I find it less weird than cow's milk, and hey, it's free and healthier!

My almost 5 year old has breast milk from time to time. (Shhh, don't tell him!)

My 14 month old will only drink it from the tap. She will drink other things from a sippy (water, cow milk) but if she tasted that it is BM she gives me a "how dare you!" Look. :giggle3:

I was pumping to relieve pressure when my milk came in w my newbie and my son (18 mo) looked at the bottle in the fridge and says "Milk?". I said "yeah, baby, milk. Do you want to try it?". " mmhmm!". So I gave him a couple ounces in a sippy...heCHUGGED it, wiped his mouth and asked for more!

Use it to make a smoothie! I give my toddler bm often, especially if everyone seems to be passing germs and I want her to get the extra antibodies! She loves mama milk!
