hi everyone! This is my first time posting. Any help would be majorly appreciated!!
I have been breastfeeding twins since they were born. They are now 13 months. I have been working on weening them slowly and gradually since 11.5 months. We started mixing cows and breast milk in one bottle feeding a day and slowly been working up to now they been taking 2 bottles of cows milk a day which is their daytime feedings. I breastfeed them in the morning and in the eves only. Seems like everything was going super smooth.......until this past week. They both all of the sudden decided to strike the bottle. They wont take it. And its both of them which is weird cause they are fraternal and dont always have the same needs or likes and arent always on the same schedule. I try to give them the milk in a bottle and they swat it away and then will continue to cry. NOthing soothes them except if i break down and breast feed them. They have been taking bottles since they were 3 weeks old with no problem- we would put expressed BM in them. They were taking cows milk just fine too for over a month so i am clueless as to what changed this. I think when this all started with my son about a week ago, i thought maybe he wasnt feeling good so i nursed him out of wanting him to feel better. I am not sure if that is what started this whole thing. Anyhow, I am now going backwards, instead of dropping or replacing breastfeeds, i am adding them which is no good since i really need to ween them. I have tried to put the milk in a sippy and they throw it. Any help or thoughts on this would be great. I have to go to work on monday and i am not sure what will happen!!
