Hello Ladies, I seem to be stuck in a catch 22 situation here :)
My almost 17 month old is nursing away to glory in the night time (can go up to 6 times) and is absolutely refusing to drink any milk during the day, we have tried EBM, Cow's milk, goat's milk, almond milk (I know other milk is not absolutely necessary, but was trying to see if that will reduce his nightime sessions). He uses his straw cup absolutely fine and can drink from a regular cup with a little assistance. It is just something to do with milk. One sip with milk he throws the straw cup.
I am a full time working mom and still pump twice a day and thinking of HUTH if Anish is totally set on reverse cycling on me.(but still scared about HUTH).
At this point, I am not trying to get him to STTN, though it would be nice, but how do I make him drink milk during the day time. I am not around to nurse him and even during the week ends if I offer, he insists on playing rather than nursing.
One more interesting twist was that I was away on-call last week for a couple of days and DH had given EBM in straw cup during the night time, it looks like Anish sat up took a sip or two from straw cup and fell asleep by himself and NEVER woke up the entire night.
So do I try the straw cup technique again ? and what if he totally stops to take any milk at night time and still wouldn't take anything during the day time too ?
I am just a little confused. If not any advice atleast tell me that the frequent night nursing is just a phase :)
