weaning from breast to bottle. Experiences and tips pls.
« on: December 06, 2007, 09:14:45 pm »

hi, i have a son who is now 1 year and 8 months, and still sa akin pa rin siya nagmimilk. I am having a hard time since i am a working mom, though i stay home to work. i manage a computer shop. Naawa ako sa kanya everytime na itry ko introduce bottle, so balik ulit kami sa dati since nonstop crying talaga and "mommy please dede" dialogue?

hay... any tekniks please? :(

it's not necessary to say bye-bye to breastmilk.  the breastfeeding relationship does not need to end if it isn't mutually desired by both mother and child.  you can probably start by training him to feed from the bottle or sippy cup with breastmilk.  explain to him that it's still your milk.  show him the process when you pump and and put your milk in the bottle/cup and let him taste it.  it's going to be a difficult process because he can still see you around, making him feel that you are available for direct nursing.  another option is to increase solid food intake during the day.

eto din ang problema ko pero ang baby ko turning 6 months pa lang soon. pero nag introdce na ko ng mash food para medyo ma lessen yung need niya for breast milk. medyo tinuturuan ko na din sya uminom sa baso yung may maliliit na butas nakakainom naman sya pero tubig lang ayaw niya talaga ng ibang milk.

  oo nga nga tapos hilig pa mangagat, tsaka mahirap pag lumalabas kami e.  minsan nga sinusuot yong kamay sa blouse ko.... kaya sabi ni hubby gumamit na kami ng formula milk para pag lumalabas  kami.   kumakain na rin naman ng solids kaya lang iba talaga yong milk lalo na pag sleepy na yon ang hanap ng baby.

I read in another forum, his son is 3yo. She said her milk is sour already. She rubbed her nipples with calamansi before feeding her son. "o kitam? sabi sa 'yo panis na eh." And so that's the end of their breastfeeding.

My son is 1 yr 3 mos. He's directly breastfed. I don't pump. He eats lots of solids and drinks juices and water from sippy cup and tumbler. Ang prob ko po is he hates formula. I tried introducing formula milk in sippy cup, ayaw niya eh. Our pedia dentist adviced against reintroduction of bottle feeding. Tama daw na sippy cup or ordinary cup.

I want to turn him to a milk drinker when he grows up. Eh pano po iyan, formula pa lang sa sippy cup ayaw na niya?

mommyjazz,we have the same problem.my baby,9 months,also breastfeeds directly to me,and doesn;t want to drink his formula mlik.hindi siya sanay sa bottle,but he drinks water na in a sippy cup at the age of 9 months.just last month,i mix feed him with formula na similac(soy milk)kc may pdala samin isang can nito and i know mahal sa market to,so sayang naman kung walang gagamit.he liked it hanggang sa naubos na yung can na yon.now he has 2 more cans of formula milk na padala lang din from states,kasama to ng similac,it's enfamil.i tried to give it to him sa bottle niya pero ayaw niya,e last month lang nag bottle feed siya.ttry ko yung sinabi mo na timpla nalang sa sippy cup niya,hope it works,fear ko baka yung lasa mismo ng enfamil ang ayaw niya and not a formula milk kc naimon pa niya yung similac niya.sayang kc,2 cans pa yung nasa amin.nanghihinayang lang ako hehe.o kaya wag naman sana mas prefer niya ang soy milk kc ang mahal nun dito sa market,mabuti sana kung regular may padala non e hindi naman.

 :-[ :-\huhuhuhuhu eto rin ang problem ko.... my son Quillan is 21 months na...full time and direct breastfeeder din sya... he only experienced bottle feeding nung nagkajaundice sya where he was stopped to breastfeed...

after ng treatment niya, balik breastfeed ulit sya at hininto ko din ang formula milk, he used to drink enfalac...

now, medyo nahihirapan na ako and feeling ko he's no getting enough...he healthy naman...i guess kasi he doesnt get sick at all...thanks to my milk...

pero pinapagalitan ako ng mama ko kasi ang payat daw...he eats solid and drinks from a real cup...never the sippy thingy, nahihirapan kasi sya...kahit mag isa kaya na niya uminom...

iniisip ko nga na lagyan ng something yun breast ko para umayaw na sya... can relate tlaga ako kei mommy leighscent...

Medyo irrelivant siguro but maybe makatulong. Ako kasi 1 month lang nagpa-BF, so to make the transition goes smoothly, at first nilalagay ko breastmilk sa bote, after pumping it using a breast pump. When he get used to it (drinking milk from the bottle) saka ko inumpisahan timplahan ng formula. Minsan kasi its not always about the taste breastmilk ang gusto nila but the bonding. Sarap kasi feeling ni baby if cuddled while feeding. In my elder sis case 2 yrs. bago palang niya inumpisahan ang whining, nilalagyan niya raw ng katas ng siling labuyo nipple niya, kaya gradually ayaw na ng bata. Nakaka-awa pag na-anghangan kasi iiyak sobra, but tiisin na lang daw niya makita kesa walang trabaho si mom niya, mas mahirap yun.
