    Default introducing cows milk

    Well I thought Id try... She hated it. She spit it out and practically gaged and tried to throwup. I know d-r-a-m-a. Anyways, do I have to give her cows milk? Or is she okay with only my milk. She doesnt nurse that often anymore doesnt seem interested. Some days more than others. Yesterday I nursed her 4xs during the day. Today 2 so far and its already gonna be 5pm. If she does need it how do I trick this little drama queen into drinking it??

    sucessfully breastfeeding my little princess for 10 months we are absolutely in love I know Im giving her the best and I know she'll grow healthy and strong!!

    If you nurse 3-4 times a day (full 24 hour period) there is no need for other milk. Here is some info from kellymom.com

    Well if you are interested in having her drink it, do it in moderation. I introduced it to my lo in small amounts. 2oz of CM and 4oz of formula/BM as he got use to that, I just increased the amount of CM and decreased the other...
