Hi, I'm Lisa, wife to Andy, SAHM to my DD taylor, and expecting #2 March 21st
Taylor will be 1 in about 3 weeks. We're starting the weaning process, from a bottle to a cup. She still gets her formula but it's in a cup. Once she's a year we'll switch to whole milk. Anyway, she does fine during the day but when it comes to nap and bedtime feedings, I don't know what to do. PLEASE HELP!!!
What I did with our son was give him less and less in the bottle during nap and bedtime as the days went on. I would give him like 8oz for a few days then 6 then 4 then 2 and then none. He became attached to a stuff animal and a frog that plays night night music instead. It actually went pretty easily. Good luck hun.
I just took the bottle away, and replaced it with a sippy for a few weeks then took it away all together. I tried to get them to drink it before bed, rather than wanting to fall asleep with it. Both my girls were pretty easy with it. Good luck!
I think cold turkey is the way to go. Also, when I weaned my kiddos from bedtime nursing we tried to change the scenery a bit. Instead of rocking in the same rocking chair we always used, we started snuggling on the couch. Good luck!
I transitioned my oldest from the bottle to a cup, by using a sippie cup designed by nuby. it comes with 3 different spouts. a nipple, a sippie and a sports spout. I used the nipple shape for a little while. bout a week til he was used to the difference in feeling of the bottle and cup. then I put the sippie spout on and he never had a problem with it. U may be able to do the transition with a soft top sippie as well. the nuby one I used was all soft tops.
