Thinking of leaving DS with the ILs for a w/e away but he refuses any kind of milk (expressed, formula or cow's mlk) in any kind of bottle/cup/beaker/straw cup. HV (or actually I think she's a NN) said he'd be fine for a w/e without milk as long as he had yogurts, milk on cereal, cheese etc. Is this ok or should I ignore her? Gut instinct says he needs milk but that might be me feeeling I need to feed him. DS is just shy of 1 yo.
Nutritionally he'll be fine for a weekend, but he will miss you - and have no way of understanding you will be back soon. You will need to express for comfort while you are away. You will miss him, too.
Bf at a year is part of your relationship with him - not the milk itself, really, though that's wonderful stuff too
He will get over his missing you but he will prob need you a lot on your return.
