    Default Help please? (moved from another thread!)

    I am new to the forum and have joined for a very specific reason. DD is now 12 months and I want to drop the breastfeeding. Although I love it still I work full time and am finding I am ready for this step! she will not take any breastmilk from anywhere else bottles, or cups. I need now to be able to leave her at night without her screaming the place down!

    I currently feed her at 6.30pm before bed, at 10.30 when we go to bed and at 7am. She has 3 good meals a day and drinks water or juice from a cup during the day. She will drink a little cows milk but will not touch any formula.

    I tried to cut out the late night feed recently but she got very poorly with the sickness bug that was going round and ended up in hospital. When she started feeding again she was waking for the late night feed and i felt she needed it to build her weight and strength up. I have tried to cut it out again but she is still waking.

    Could I please ask you all to help me as I am ready to take this step but don't know where to start?

    I didn't have this problem with ds as once he tasted formula when I went back to work he was hooked!

    Any Suggestions?
