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!

It is possible he doesn't tolerate cows milk or perhaps it is just the taste. Either way you could try goats milk. It is closer to human milk both in macronutrient makeup and in flavor.

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!

Many parents find toddler’s formula good for their baby as it is safe and will supply minerals and vitamins as compared to cow’s milk. Take Doctor's advice and proceed further.
