My son (age 1) has suddenly decided to stop taking a bottle from his caregiver while I am at work during the day. We've always put him down awake, and he's been fine not having that bottle before his morning nap, but he's been having a really hard time with the afternoon nap and now sometimes spends the whole nap time standing in his crib saying "ma ma ma, ma ma ma" in this very pitiful voice.
I'm comfortable with where we are in terms of weaning (he nurses in the morning and before bed at night) but this makes me soooo sad to hear. The bottle thing is obviously his choice (we've tried everything and he just screams now when he sees it), but how long will it take to adjust? And, how long should I wait before trying to drop one of the other BF sessions? I would like to TTC again but have not seen AF since I conceived DS and for a number of reasons am pretty sure I'm not going to be able to conceive without weaning fully.
