Breastfeeding at 17mths

Postby pinkmeru76 » Wed May 20, 2009 2:17 pm

My daughter is currently 17mths. Used to feed her some formula till she insist on not drinking. She is now only on breastmilk, however as a working mum i do not have sufficient milk for her even with e regular expressing n papaya. She still wakes up for nursing. Had tried Nestle, Frisco, Gain & Etc she just dun even drink a slip.
Any comments or advise???

at 17mths, it's not necessary to give formula or breast milk. you can give fresh milk. My bb was on breastmilk, then to formula milk. now at 14 mths, he takes fresh milk and yogurt occasionally.

do take note, fresh milk is not for bb under 1 year old though.

have u tried being out of the room and getting someone else to try feeding other milk?

given a choice, of course baby wants BM.. its the best! :)

u can try to introduce fresh milk from a cup... and let baby transit...
