Until about a month ago my 13 mo old took my milk in a bottle from her dad in the morning, bedtime and also when I work one day a week. Now she refuses the bottle (takes 0-20 ccs per offer) and only took 2-3 oz when I worked. I have offered it to her in a cup, she took one sip then pushed it away. Sippy cup, same thing, 1-3 sips then she throws it down. Any other ideas? She nurses plenty so I am not really worried but I have all this wonderful milk that she is refusing now.
I will continue to pump once every morning before I run because I don't want to run with any extra milk in me. I get 1-3 oz in the morning depending upon when she last nursed.
I am contacting my nearest milk bank because I hope at least I can donate it if they don't mind that it will take me 2-3 months to get the 150 oz minimum.
Any ideas on other ways to present the milk or should I just let it go and donate it? Anyone think she might start taking it from a cup in a few months or something? We have a separate freezer now so it would technically be good until next spring and summer. I don't want to be selfish, either, though, and we had the wonderful gift of donor milk when she was a baby and I had very low supply.
