I need help.
I will be leaving my husband and son next month for one 8 days. I do not have any breast milk saved and I don't produce enough to pump my milk. Plus if I stimulate my supply, I will need to continue to pump when I'm away and that is not really an option. He will be 11 months when I'm gone. Yes, I know it would be ideal to make it to that 1 year mark and I'm bummed that wont happen.
I need sound advice, on how exactly to get my now 10 month old to start taking formula. I have tried different brands. None effect his tummy per say, but he will not drink it, most likely because of taste. We are skipping the bottle and using a sippy-cup. He will drink formula if I blend in a little banana and strawberry, but will not drink it at all if it is plain. I feel like it is too much fruit/sugar for such a young one to continue to make smoothies every time he is drinking formula.
Because of his age and exclusively breastfeeding- he is fighting this change and I'm desperate.
Thank you so much for your advice.
