How do I wean my nearly one year old

Hi I need to wean my baby off my breasts for medical reasons. But he is very attached, refuses a bottle and is allergic to cows milk. The allergy formula is vile. I don't know what to do. Please please help.

May I ask what the medical reason is? The majority of medications are safe for nursing, but Doctors don't know this and don't ever seem to care about finding out

Have you tried Goat's Milk? My oldest has a terrible dairy allergy. We put him on goat's milk for quite awhile. Goats milk is the closest to BM. I have met Moms that have raised their babies on goats milk.
Have you also tried a sippy in place of a bottle?

My dd does much better with a straw cup. She never took a bottle or sippy. I also second the goats milk recommendation.
