My DS is almost 12 months old and I'm trying to wean him off. He never took the bottle well, so during the day he drinks from a regular cup and I nurse him at night to sleep and in the early mornings if he wakes up. My main worry is that we are taking a trip without him in May, so I feel I need to have him weaned by then. However, he doesn't drink a lot of liquids from the cup (maybe 3 oz at most) nor the sippy (he bites on it and drink a little bit only).
Any suggestions on what I can offer him at bedtime and early mornings if I don't nurse him? Not sure how to give him milk at bedtime/morning time when he's sleepy, as it's hard to give him an open cup at these hours. I give him the paci, but seems to takes longer to get him to sleep.
He has always been picky/difficult eater. He eats solids although not a whole lot and it takes a long time to feed him a meal, so he's on the small side. Just worried that with the weaning, he won't get enough and won't gain any weight.
Any suggestions / tips? Thanks!
