    Unhappy Weaning from breast to bottle help!

    Ok so my LO is just short of his first bday and we have been successfully nursing this whole year. My goal was to nurse for a year since I didn't want to give him formula. Since I'm a SAHM he never got too many bottles since it was just easier to give him the breast. Up until now I have absolutely loved nursing him. It's honestly been the most amazing bonding experience with him. I never thought I would say this but I am sooo ready to wean him off the breast. He has become so much more aggressive and he bites me and honestly I don't enjoy it at all anymore it's terrible. I've tried pumping and giving him bottles but he isn't satisfied. Not to mention he can't see me pump cause he cries. I can't go into the other room and pump and leave him alone. Are there any ways to gently wean him off the breast? I will give him breast milk until he turns one and maybe after that. I don't mind pumping but I really just feel like its time to move on. Help!

    Have you tried different sippy cups? Both of my kids like the Nuby ones with soft nipples.

    I second the Nuby sippies. I tried every cup imaginable with m DD and those were the only ones she has taken to. They don't have a flow valve thing like the others... the flow stops because the soft spout seals itself up which is great if he's a biter/chewer since he can bit the spout and liquid will flow.

    Exactly! My son gnaws away on the nipple. And then tosses it like a drunken king when he's over it. So it won't leak.

    "Drunken King" is perfect!
