Ean is officially on the formula bent. We BF for 9 months but I just couldn't take it anymore to be honest. I was done. I saw the doctor last week and he said he would definitely drink his formula when he got thirsty but I cannot get this kid to take a bottle/sippy. I've tried to warm it up, cool it down, switch it up and I cannot get him to take it. He must not be thirsty yet... It has been over 24 hours since he breastfed and he has had watered down food so maybe that is keeping him holding out. Anyone had this experience before? The little stubborn guy just won't come around! I'm waiting for the breaking point lol

How frustrating! I don't have any advice, though. How's he doing today?
