My son is going to be 10 months in 2 weeks. He's been breastfeeding since he was born and started eating when he was just over 6 months. His father and I dont like giving him foods with lots of sugar in them. He's eating everything just fine now. And drinking lots of water. But i'm thinking it's time to stop breastfeeding. As a young mother I want to go back to school for the career I want.
I've already purchased a small box of enfamil+. The single packages to see how he is with it.
He doesn't hate it but he doesn't want it. I've tried the 50/50 method. Half formula and half breast milk but he didn't want to keep drinking it. He just played with the bottle.that's how he is with breastmilk in the bottle too. He just sips on it then plays with the bottle while it's leaking all over him. He drinks it if his father or my mother are giving him the bottle but not when I'm around.
He is a confront nursery. Always breastfeeding before his naps and before bed. I am now trying to stop during the night. Which seems to be working some nights. I just rock him back to sleep.
Any advice? I'd like to be completely stopped before summer
