My 11.5 mo old will not take a bottle and gets about 50% or more of his food from breastmilk, I've been battling various breastfeeding obstacles from the very beginning such as poor latch due tongue tie, marathon cluster feedings that lasted entire nights for weeks on end, and nipple & ductal thrush which I'm still battling. It's been a long road and I'd like to take the pressure off a little. I'd like to start introducing milk in a cup to baby and want to know if formula is better than cows milk or if formula is nutritionally unfit for a child after his first birthday. I don't want to pump. My breast have hurt for a year and need a break. I also have about 20 cans of formula in my pantry I got about 6 months ago that I need to either use or donate before they expire.
