I have ebf since Ds2 was born, he is now 4 months old and it's time to wean to formula due to my impeding return to work.
He's not so keen on the bottle but after a few days he has come around. So I've done what they recommend, replace one feed bit that didn't really work for us so my Gp said it was fine to just offer formula in a bottle at every feed and finish with boob as he hated the bottle and would've quite flustered halfway through, this fixed his bottle resistance.
Som we went back to replaceing whole feeds. We do one bottle feed, then one breast and so on.
My issue is that he knows that he can still have breast and is so happy at breast feed time, then next time at bottle time he's not a happy camper
Should I just go cold turkey? I realise the pain this will cause me but I feel like I'm teasing him with the boob.
Hope you understand what I'm trying to say, TIA.
Ps - he also hasn't pooped in a few days, what is normal and any home remedies for constipation. Wasn't sure whether I should try to give him some water or not.
