I've been weaning my 18 mth old dtr off day feeds since Weds, so far so good, but not without it's trials. My daughter will drink rice dream vanilla but I'm concerned it doesn't have the same status as whole milk. I've heard soy milk contains harmful hormones that may lead to early puberty. I don't want to undo the goodness of breastmilk, by opting for something harmful. Do you think it would be ok to flavour whole milk with a hint of vanilla essence perhaps. She's still into night feeding which is utterly exhausting me, but I want to get the day weaning under control before attempting night times. I've been told by mostly non-breastfeeding women that I should just say 'no' if only it was that easy, does anyone else find the whole process very harrowing, or is just me?
