I have to wean and need help

With all of ds' food allergies and his lack of growth the GI wants to put him on the same elemental formula that dd is on. One problem, he wont take a bottle or a sippy cup. He needs to take at least 20 oz of this a day. Right now he is nursing up to 8 times a day (3 of those at night) He is 13 months. How can I ease him into this?

Re: I have to wean and need help

Have you tried a regular cup with no sippy lid? We used that for DD1's water starting at 10 months and she did well drinking from it.
You could try starting at meals and see how it goes, then transition his other nursings over.

Sorry you have to wean mama, but great job nursing for 13 months!
