Please help me. My 12 mth old is only having short 2-5 min feeds from one breast only about 4-5 times a day. When he sees me drinking water he wants some too. So i have given him water in a bottle which he has increasingly drank from over the past 2 months while we have been on an overseas holiday. I have tried giving him goat milk and rice milk but am reluctant to give him cows milk as it makes me very mucousy. I feel he is drinking too much water and it isnt filling his belly the way milk would not to mention the calcium he is missing. He has 5 meals a day. Bfast, lunch dinner and morn and afternoon snacks. I want to fully wean him but not sure how and reluctant till he is taking other milk. Please help!
