Due to medical reasons I need to stop breastfeeding and switch to formula. My son is 9 months old. He does not like the bottle and has not figured out his sippy cup yet (chews it and does not suck on it). We tried a bottle of formula the other day and he started crying frantically. He later kept reaching for me to BF him. Any tips on how to make this transition? I had hoped to nurse him until age one like his older brother. I have no experience with formula. What brand of formula would you recommend? My son had colic as a younger baby and he has a sensitivity to rice cereal. My son is eating three solid meals a day. How much formula should I give him?
