My son has gone on many nursing strikes, fights and beats me up while nursing (nothing new), is biting frequently and won't nurse in the day except before his nap (he used to nap 3 times a day but is on a napping strike as well). He wakes me up every 1-2 hours at night and this will continue unless I start letting him cry more at night. I haven't been refusing nursing at night because he doesn't get enough fluids in the day. I'd like it if he would drink formula in the day because he will start day care in another month. When I give it to him (Nestle Good Start) he makes a face and throws it down and won't drink anymore of it. I tried mixing it with EBM but he does the same thing. I will continue nursing him but I want to start the weaning process and I NEED SLEEP--especially since I am going back to work in May and I'm accident prone--I've had some close calls on the road which scare me. I don't want to pump--tried that and my son doesn't drink much if it is expressed and I'm not a successful pumper. My son just bites the end of the bottle nipples if I give him one. Most people say don't use a bottle at this point but how can I get the recommended amount of fluids in him when he only drinks an ounce at a time from a sippy cup? Has anyone had success getting a baby who doesn't like formula to take it? Any recommended formula, bottles, cups? I tried soy pre-mixed formula and he seemed to like it enough but then I read a lot of scarry stuff about it being equivalent to giving baby birth control pills so I scrapped that. Thanks.
