I breastfeed my 10 month old daughter. She nurses usually 4 times a day and sometimes in the middle of the night which is mostly for comfort.
I am all for breastfeeding long term but I am returning to work in July, so she obviously won't be able to continue nursing on demand. I tried to start replacing one nursing session this week. She won't take anything from a bottle. I tried the sippy cup as well. She loves having water from the sippy cup but she never drinks very much. She just has a few sips and then plays with the cup. She did the same with milk in the cup.I was originally planning to wean her to formula before returning to work. I am willing to pump a couple times at work and nurse her in the evenings, but I just can't get her to drink from any source other than my breasts. I'm worried she won't be ready by the time I go back to work. She is also not eating a lot of solids yet. I give her finger foods and let her have what she wants. She has never liked being spoon fed purees.
