My baby is now a year old and I am trying to wean him. I started substituting with formula when he'll allow me to but he is really fighting me on it. It's harder than I thought it would be. Any advice for me would be appreciated.Answer Question

Have you ever tasted formula? I can understand why your little one doesn't want to drink it. I'd switch to whole milk (4% milk fat) instead of formula. also try switching one feeding at a time and as a previous poster mentioned let dada or another family member give the first couple cups to your little one. Also, if you have one, hide your nursing pillow unless you are going to nurse. My son would refuse the sippy (try and find one with the softer spouts at first) and drag my nursing pillow over to me.
Oh, when it comes to the bedtime nursing cut the nursing time down gradually. I decreased my night time feeding by 5 minutes each week and replaced it with a story and some cuddles.
