Yes.. I said three yr old. My daughter Brisa was a breastfed baby. I breastfed her for almost two years.... then I had my son. After my son was born, I wanted to breastfeed him, but I was put on a lot of medications that were contraindictive to breastfeeding so I bottlefed him. My daughter Brisa was still breastfeeding and drinking from a cup, so basically se had to stop cold turkey, so when she saw Adan with a bottle, she wanted one too. BIG MISTAKE. Now she drinks 2 bottles a day, or more when she is sick. I can't get her to stop. I have bought her cups with all her favorite characters, told her only babies drink from bottles, everything. She won't give up thoselast two bottles. HELP.... and please no bashing.... if you have nothing nice to say... please say nothing.

You probably got bad info about drugs and breastfeeding. Unless you were getting chemo you probably could have breastfed. Even with chemo you can breastfeed after you get done with it. I developed many medical problems while I was pregnant with my youngest and had to be on 10 or more meds while breastfeeding. That was all the time, when I got sick I had to be on more and I also had to have IV medications every 3 weeks. I was also diagnosed with cancer when he was around 2 mo. I had several hospitalizations including for septicemia (bacteria in the blood) while he was an infant and asked to keep him with me. He had no formula or bottles. He breastfed almost 3 years.
You could still relactate with your youngest. Throw out all the bottles and say no more bottles!
