 Hello! Sorry for the late update... We really had a hard time magswitch or mixed feed using bottle.

We were advised by the pedia to try different teats... We tried almost every available teats in the market and guess what, sa orthodontic nipple natuto si audree. Curity yung brand (cheap lang cia) pero flat cia parang contour ng breast pero hindi wide neck- sa Landmark meron. get the slow flow.

After a week na natuto si baby with orthodontic nipple, nagswitch na kami sa avent kase yun yung nabili na namin before birth pa, hindi naman sya nanibago, ngayon mixed feed kami, breastfeed by night and weekends, formula sa day time coz im back to work.

Hope this info will still be of help  ;)

Regards!

hi mommies, nahihirapan akong iwean ang 10 month old son ko from breastmilk to formula. He doesn't like to drink sa feeding bottle so i give him training cup. ok naman pero iinom lang siya ng formula pag gutom na siya pero 2 oz lang. i breastfeed him sa dawn kasi ayaw nga niya mag feeding bottle. di na rin kasi marami breastmilk ko eh. aside from milk, he does have a big appetite sa solid food. Hope you can help!

Hi mommies! :) I need help. Mixed feeding un baby ko before but nun nag 1month sya, umayaw na sya totally sa pagdede sa bote.. I know better for him if exclusively breastfed sya but what my worry is how would i be able to go to work to support all of his needs... he's 3months and 2 weeks now and ayaw na ayaw niya talaga na magfeed sa bottle. everytime we give him bottled milk, nasasayang lang kasi hindi niya talaga sina-suck yun nipple.. ok pa sana na ganun sya now pero worry ko eh pano na pag 4months or 6months na sya at ganun pa din.. help mga mommies.. what should i do to teach him again how to bottlefeed? ???

that is exactly my predicament sissy :)

im exclusively breastfeeding but i expressed breastmilk and that's what i feed him whenever im working.

the problem-he doesn't like to drink on a bottle :(

i bought avent and breastflow. he used the avent because he is already used to it but nevertheless, he drinks very little amount..

worst comes to worst sis, your caregiver may try feeding your baby milk with a spoon, dropper or syringe.

if your baby is older than 4-6 months old, if you think he can handle - consider going straight to a cup :)

hope this helps :D

My boy is also 2 yrs and 6 mos and is still breastfed. I still don't know how to totally wean him. He likes solid food so binubusog ko na siya para should he want to feed on me, sandali nalang. Im a SAHM and we're together 24/7 kaya napaka accessible ko sa kaniya. It was my husband who made a rule na we can't feed in the living room or other parts of the house. Bedroom lang. Now he feeds only at naptime (in the afternoon) and bedtime. With this, he associated breastfeeding with sleep and learned to demand for it only when he's sleepy. Should he demand for my breast, I offer solids or juice. I also keep him busy with toys or TV (I still have to limit his TV time though). When he cries in frustration, I deny my breast except when I know he's very sleepy and tired. When he's just been fed solids and water/juice, alam kong arte and comfort lang ang gusto niya, I deny my breast, offer other foods or divert his attention.
Since I'm limiting or breastfeeding sessions, he needs formula na. Ang hirap din mag offer ng formula so I add Milo to his nido and offer it in a printed cup with straw or sippy bottle. It's funny but when he sees that the drink is white (milk) he refuses kaya I have to serve it in a printed or colored cup. Advice lang ng pedia dentist namin, malakas maka stain ng teeth and chocolate so brush his teeth 2x/day.

i can totally relate with you...as of today i'm still nursing my eldest (3yrs & 2mos old) PLUS my youngest (1yr and 3mos). while we were in the process of weaning kuya, i gave birth. so instead of progressing on his bottle/cup feedings, he regressed. everytime he sees me nursing bunso, he would insist on being nursed as well.
so, like mommyjazz's tactic, we made sure that he's always full and to just allow him to be breastfed if and only if it's nap/sleeping time. right now, i'm conditioning him to totally stop the BF-ing sessions. at 3 he can understand much easily my reasoning, sabi ko bakit yung mga cousins mo (those a bit older than him) hindi na nagdede sa mga mommies nila, so dapat sha din hindi na kase big boy na sha. and he seems to accept it naman...pero minsan pag may topak ang ending namen is pinapadede ko pa din sha...haaaay sa part ko kase parang naaawa pa din ako sa kanya (hehe fault ko na din) pero i know i have to be firm kase nga lumalaki na sha.

sis when my older boy was three years old, we keep on telling him that he was already too big to breastfeed.. until he was four years old.

the night before he turned four, we told him that big boys don't breastfeed, so he knew during his 4th bday - he stopped breastfeeding :)

i remember when i had our baby he said - mother i'm the original breastfed baby in your breast right? haha.. sabi ko syempre of course kuya :)

Prob ko, my 2 1/2 yo has speech delay kaya hindi pa kami magkaintindihan and I can't expect him to fully understand me when I tell him that he can't nurse as often anymore. Kaya I divert him and feed him a lot of solids just to lay him off my breast.
