From last night I officially put logan on cows milk and he hates it Crying or Very sad

he is a really fussy eater and although he is not underweight he hardly eats and relies on formula to fill him up.

Well yesterday evening after cooking another dinner for 2 hours only to have him shake his head and turn it down, I decided i'd had enough and switched him to cows milk.

He usually has 2 bottles during the night still but I gave him cows milk at 3am yesterday ad he spat it out and screamed the place down for formula. I refused to give him it cause if he was that hungry he would drink the cows milk.

He stood up in his cot and threw the bottle of milk out whilst having a tantrum. I ignored him and 5 mins later he fell asleep without anything.

He woke up this morning at 7.30 and I tried him on weetabix. He refused it. So I gave him 2 baby yoghurts and he ate them. I then tried to give him some cows milk and he just keeps refusing it.

Even though its stressful i'm going to keep going cause he's supposed to be on cows milk from one (which is monday) and he's just not eating solids cause the formula is filling him up.

Has anyone else had a problem with putting their child on cows milk? Layla took to it straightaway. I've tried it cold and warm with no success.

I did not have a problem with giving my son milk. I had more of a problem trying to get him to eat.

Becks - soften the blow hunni.
Make up formula as normal then spilt it into 2 halfs and add half milk to make it up to his usual size bottle.

So if he normally has say 6oz formula put 3oz of made up formula and 3oz of cows milk.

Do that for maybe a week then change it to 1/4 formula (ie 1.5oz formula/4.5oz cows milk), then go onto plain cows milk.

Also there is no such thing as "supposed to be on cows milk at one year old" - it's that they shouldn't have it before one year old. Wink

I think the idea of half & half to start and then gradually decreasing the amount of formula is a good one. If ya can't beat 'em, trick 'em! It's only just dawned on me that mothers have to be master strategists... Confused

This is kind of scaring me when I think that this may be in my near future...Ah well.

Jess, in canada they recommend cows milk before 1 year?

yup definately! Im surprised some people dont think of that themselves. Its natural not to like something new, and pretty cruel imo to switch a baby's milk straight away like that. Better to do it gradually like tigres said.

i think 'cruel' is a bit harsh allie! Laughing

my son took to moo juice straight away but my friend's daughter was having none of it. My fiend did the half and half thing and now she will drink it in the morning but still no joy at night.

what are you implying here? Because it certainly looks like you are putting becky down. At least she knows when her kids were born!
