there is a time where your baby goes through a period where they will stop breastfeeding. its called a period strike. its nothing serious, the best thing to do is if your baby wont breastfeed then preserve your milk and pump it into bottles and feed your baby that way.

There are more chemicals on cows milk......as Jodi said you are the parent. It does not matter what your in laws think. Your child's life and development is what matters. The longer the child goes without the right nutrition long enough your child's brain does not develop properly which affects the child's learning and functioning.

Your inlaws are not the parents of said child. You can do what you need to to keep him from being depeleted of nutrition. Why are they forcing your hand!?

I had the same problem around 5 months, but she was willing to take formula from a bottle so I switched at that point. I tried pumping and giving her my milk in a bottle, but she refused. I did find that if I mixed about 1/3 breastmilk with her formula, that she didn't notice and would drink it without issue. After about a month of only pumping, my milk supply was reduced to the point where it took forever to get enough to continue to be feasible, so at that point I quit. I agree with the others, far too early to give cows milk; their digestive systems just aren't ready for it and it lacks many of the essential nutrients they require. Better to switch to formula; at least u know they r getting what they need.

Formula or cow's milk? If cow's milk then you need to stop. That can be very dangerous to their system at 6 months. Cow's milk is not to be introduced until 12 months old. Cow's milk does not have the proper nutrition and fat you baby needs for brain and growth development.

What milk is baby drinking? If baby is not drinking any milk then cut back on food. All of baby's nutrition comes from the milk so that is the most important. Food is just for fun with little nutrition right now.
