Okay, ladies, I need help. I'm trying to wean my 8 month old daughter from breastmilk to formula. I've tried giving her formula instead of breastmilk, yet she refuses to accept it. She's comfortable with a bottle or a cup, so I don't think that's the problem. She takes solids well, and she accepts other fluids (water, apple juice), but she won't drink the formula. I'm guessing it's not very palatable? I'd like to be finished with breastfeeding, but maybe she's just not ready? What can I do to help her accept formula over breastmilk? Any ideas?
