I have been BFing for 8 months. My baby took a bottle well for about 5 months (in fact for awhile she prefered it!) but now refuses. This is fine for now because I stay home with her and can BF any time she needs to. However, I am ready to start weaning for a variety of reasons but mainly because we will be trying IVF again in the spring and I need to be completely done BFing for at least 2 months prior.
My question is, how do I start weaning if she won't take a bottle? We have tried sippy cups a few times and she won't do that either. I know the advice is to try and get baby off of the bottle by 1 year. Should I focus on getting her to try to take a bottle again (only to try to get her off of it in 4 months) or should I just focus on the cup/suppy cup instead? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!
