My 7.5 month old son just loves his boobie, so much that he won't take anything else I didn't really plan to feed as long as I have but he had other plans so i've been keeping it up for him. I have tried so many different bottles and sippy cups, different formula's he just won't have a bar of it. The only thing he will take is cool boiled water from a standard cup and i've managed to feed him a bottle of formula without the lid on aswell.
I'm just after some advice, my girls were formula fed once they were a couple of months old so i've never had this issue before. I'd love to wean so that we can ttc #4 and my cycles are abit out of whack right now (last cycle was 40 days, when I usually average 28-30). But I'm abit concerned about how to approach it.
I had a family friend suggest leaving him with somebody else for the day with bottles/formula. But I have done this myself where I refused to feed for about 10 hours and he basically starved himself. I feel abit uneasy leaving him in that situation. I don't want to distress him.
I'm assuming that feeding him full-time out of normal cup is probably not suitable?
He gets plenty of fruit and veg in his solid meals. If worst comes to worst, i'm happy to hold out untill 12 months and wean him then but will it just get harder the longer I leave it?
Some advice would be wonderful!
