“My 11-month-old son has suddenly started refusing his milk. I dropped down from 3 to 2 breastfeeds a few weeks ago and he was doing fine with formula from a sippy cup to replace that feed. I then dropped down to one BF and at first he was ok with the two cups of formula but a few days ago he decided he didn’t want to drink it any more. I have tried cows’ milk and two different formulas but he won’t have more than a few sips at most of any of them. Last night he didn’t even want his breastfeed. Any advice? Thanks in advance!

  • Is there a temperature he prefers? Cold, warm?

  • I went through the same thing, water was the only thing!!!

  • Self weaning? Not really sure. How is he now?

  • It would depend on how much he is eating and drinking during the day, every child is different but if hes a big eater who drinks a lot of water then he may be not need much milk, still I would talk to your GP or child heath nurse to be sure

  • maybe he is weaning ?

  • How is he going with milk now?

  • how is he now? :)

  • How is he going now?

  • Maybe try one formula, one water and one bf

  • Start giving him lots of water

  • I hope its getting better for you now

  • Hope it is just a phase for you.

  • Opt for some goats milk

  • Hope he’s wanting milk now

  • Yeah I would gather it would usually just be a Phase. They do crazy things sometimes lol
