DS is 9 months and I want to wean to either formula or my frozen EBM; maybe just keep the morning nursing session. My question is, can I do this if my son does not take the bottle or sippy very well? He stopped taking the bottle at 6 months (and many times before this too). And he really doesn't care to spend time sucking on a sippy. He will take a few sips but then bang and throw it around.
Our family is going through a big transition. We just moved out of state and we are hitting that 9 mo period where all DS wants to do is crawl and walk. This past week he has had no interest in nursing during the day. I am sometimes able to get him to nurse some before his naps but even if he does it is very little. Then I have a hard time pumping the rest out. My supply is dropping because I get so stressed about this new move, and always making sure he eats and nurses well (he has gained weight very slowly since refusing the bottle) plus I got my period last month and it's probably coming back in a few weeks. I would like to stop nursing soon - I think it would be less stressful for me, my husband and my son...Another issue -- He's starting daycare next week and will go all day without me there to nurse him. They are going to give him what they can in a sippy cup.
I would appreciate any thoughts, advice and feedback. I hear and read a lot of conflicting things so it's very confusing. I've read its OK if he just nurses 2 times a day as long as he eats solids and yogurt etc...(He does this but I have to spend so much time getting him to eat his food - he just can't sit still!!)
