Anyone have any tips on how to substitute BF with a bottle feeding?
DD is 10MO, and I have dropped from 6 to 5 BF/day (in addition to 3 meals/day), but her fluid intake hasn't increased, so I don't want to drop another BF yet (my plan is to go down to 3BF/day before I return to work in June).
I've tried diluted juice and water, and am considering formula (hypoallergenic), but only succeed in getting about 40ml/meal (3 times/day), and this with a lot of gentle pushing (very frustrating for DD and I!).
DD has never been offered a bottle with a nipple, and I'd prefer to bypass the bottle with nipple altogether. I've been using an Advent Magic Cup with the stopper removed for a couple of months (DD hasn't figured out the sucking motion required when the silicone disc is in place).
Any tips/advice? Many thanks!
