Re: On the verge.
When I quit pumping I started sending formula for a few weeks, since dd wouldn't take cow's milk. After a few weeks thay said she wasn't drinking the formula so I sent bottles and they put milk in them (since she wasn't drinking it from the sippy). A few weeks after that they said she wasn't taking the bottles so I stopped sending them as well. She still doesn't drink much milk, but we provide her with lots of calcium-rich foods like cheese, yogurt, various greens, spinach, brocolli, beans...
She still nurses a lot at night, too, so I'm not concerned with how much milk she drinks.
