I will be returning to work in october and would like my 9 month old baby to have formula feeds in the day and I'll breast feed morning and evening. My partner tried to give bottle of sma and baby screamed and wouldn't take any, so I gave up and gave breast. I know I will have to be firm, but wondered if there are any tips to make it as easy as possible. I currently give breast feed at 7am, then breakfast cereal & fruit at 10.30 with small breast feed after. Lunch at 1.30 with water in cup (only has tiny amount of water), tea at 5.30 followed by breast feed then last breast feed at 8.15. Does this sound ok, really not sure if I am doing it right. I have never been sucessful at expressing and feel it is too late to start now. Please advise as I need to start new routine soon.
I used Tommee Tippee First cup with a flip-up spout for my DS, he got most of ot down him in the beginning but soon got the hang of it then moved on to the non-spill spout one. Try mixing 1 part juice to 5 parts water.
