DS is now 12 months and we have been trying to introduce plain cows milk instead of formula for the last month. I feel like I have tried every way of mixing milk and formula but he won't have a bar of it. He happily has it on weet-bix but on it's own no.
We have also been trying to give him less bottles. We've got him down to 3 bottles most days, He still wakes at night for a bottle. Lucky for me he prefers it to be room temp so I can leave it in his cot and sometimes he will just take it himself but more often than not he has pushed it out of the way and can't find it. The health nurse suggest offering him water at night instead of the bottle but that has ended in him then being awake for 3 hours screaming.
He was also on AR formula and we haven't been able to get him off that either. When we try to change it he just spits it out and ends up screaming for the thicker stuff.
He has been such a good kid until this, now he's grumpy and sooky all the time and even going to sleep has become really difficult through the day and at night. He won't go to sleep without a fight or being rocked now.
I feel like I am failing as a parent and I am so tired, I am 6 weeks off having twins and I am tired all the time. The screaming/ fight to go to sleep or for the bottle is wearing me out I don't know what to do.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
