I am going back to work next week and planned on weaning my 10 month old DD for her daytime feedings. The plan was to eliminate one feeding this week (mid afternoon) and next week I would eliminate the second one and BF her the rest of the time when home. I tried to give her formula (sippy cup then bottle) and she refused it once she tasted it. Unfortunately the way my schedule is going to be, pumping will be very difficult. It is SO hard to pump anyway and stay on top of things.
I've read that you can slowly add formula to expressed BM (which she will take) to get her to take formula. Is this the best way to get her to take it? I have some frozen milk and don't want to waste any BM! If I did manage to pump for two months could I just switch to cow milk? I wonder if she'd drink it... at least it'd taste better than formula!!
