Hi mommies. I wanna stop breastfeeding cause I ve found a job but my six month old refuses to take formula milk. She cries a lot and she's even losing weight. Please help.

Have you tried different kinds of formula? Have you tried getting someone else to give her the bottle? Sometimes infants will refuse a bottle from Mom but will take it from someone else, they can smell your milk and would prefer to have that. There are also some bottles that are made specifically for this purpose, medela has a great one. You can also try using a sippy cup, sometimes a bottle is just confusing for an infant and they, somehow, find a sippy cup easier. Hope she starts taking formula for you soon!
