Is this normal I have been weaning her off the breast and she is not keen on a bottle either. I have tried formula and cows milk but to no avail.

  • My kids loved cows milk so there was little problem with it . My sister in law used to mix the formula with cows milk and introduced it that way to her first child who was the difficult one and surprisingly worked after breastfeeding for a while. So in your case, mix some breastmilk with cows milk first and see if it works .



  • oh i hope this is sorted either way now. i was thinking that maybe you might have been eating something that bub didn’t like the taste of



  • Milk is still important at 12 months and although she’s putting up a fight, persistence will prevail. Maybe introduce a new drinking cup or bottle and get her excited by that and put milk in that.



  • yeah it sounds like a little protest to me. keep at it and kids will eat when they are hungry. try to encourage her to try it though and give her other options too



  • How many formulas have you tried? I know a baby who did just that. The only milk he would drink was the S26 which is premixed and comes in a small tetra pack. Cans of formula will definitely keep for more than 28 days despite what they may have printed on them. If your baby refuses it, you can always give it to a friend to use.



  • Try other alternatives for calcium like yoghurt
