Hi, my son is a little over 12 months old and we are weaning. We want to start working on number 2 soon, and we are going out of town with out baby in Mid Nov. We are doing really well at 3 times a day, but I would like him to drink some kind of milk for calories and protein sometime in the future. The sad thing is that I have a chest freezer full of milk that he refuses to drink. I always pumped a little each day to keep up supply, and store milk just in case.
I have been able to get him to drink a few sips of breast milk out of a regular straw ( doesn't take bottles), but then he refuses once he realizes what is in the cup. I tried to give him a sip of cows milk today, and he basically spit it out. I completely understand why he spit it out it tastes weird to him, and as far as I know most moms mix their breast milk with cows milk and slowly remove the breast milk until they are drinking only cows milk. I am not sure this is going to work because he won't take the breast milk from the cup either. Just looking for suggestions. Thanks!
In my case, I didn't mix breastmilk and cow's milk. Even when I change milk brands as what my doctor advised. I think you just have to try different ways until your child gets used to it. Hope you were able to work it out!
