I have graduated to the "big girl" forum! DD is now 13 months old and still loves nursing
Anyway, new issue is that she hates breastmilk from a bottle. Her pediatrician is not concerned (DD is 20lbs, 25% for weight, which makes me worried but we have a great pediatrician who is pretty laidback compared to others). She did suggest to try almond milk because I am not convinced that toddlers should be drinking a ton of cow's milk all of the time. We did try cow's milk and she didn't like it.
She loves yogurt and cheese, but just prefers to have water in her cup while I am gone at work every day. Is this much water (usually between meals) ok??? I am pumping once a day at work, but I am considering dropping that last pumping session if she just doesn't want her bottle...
We have tried BM in her sippy, in a big girl cup, tried letting her bottlefeed herself, she just doesn't want it!! But when I get home, the first thing we do is nurse for at least 5 min.
I let her nurse as much as she wants while I'm home and on weekends. She has also upped her solids intake, so it makes me a bit less worried. My biggest concern is making sure she is getting the calcium and protein she needs. We are planning on buying organic almond milk for her to try out this weekend.
Please let me know your thoughts, and thanks so much.
