My friend is trying to wean her now almost 13 month old. She has to travel for work and her milk production is down to about 10 oz a day. However, her son has decided he will not drink from anything other than his mom's breast (he used to drink breast milk from a bottle during the day when she is at work). I have no experience with anything like this myself as my son was bottle fed (breast milk) from about 3 weeks on) so I'm at a loss as to what to advise her. Do any of you have any tips for her?

My son is the same way. He drinks from a bottle if dad or someone else feeds him, at least he did a few month ago. But I kept breastfeeding and now that he is over 1 year old he doesnt want to really take the bottle, especially not if I want to give it to him, he might drink quarter of it but then he wants hte boob. So rry can't give you any tips as I'm in the same boat. LOL
