After 3 days of weaning this little champ has taken a bottle! Thank you to all the people to offered suggestions on how they got thier bubs to wean, it was a big help! In the end we got MAM bottles from Big W and Bellamys formula and we're doing half/half formula with breast milk atm. Oh and he'll only take the bottle if I'm bouncing on a fit ball and facing him away from my chest. The night feeds are the hardest as bub is still looking for my boob for comfort so we've had little sleep.

  • samanthaleekingsMy daughter is nearly 6 months and I've tried every bottle under the sun. I'm going to maybe have to give this one a go and see

  • carmelharrisHang in there! You're doing a great job!
  • atgrannysplace🙌🏼😍
  • cherryblossoms4Maybe you could put a drop of breast milk on the teat of the bottle for the at night feeds so it smells like you? Cause formula is generally known to be stronger than what our bodies produce - so even if you are doing 50/50 the smell of your milk will be masked for him so hopefully that might be a possible handy option for he at night time! (And you as well! :p) good luck! @maddi_and_lloyd
  • mayadabaksmatyThat's awesome!!! Bellamys is great!!! Hope it all goes well!! Xxx
  • l3nkyWhat formula are you using @maddi_and_lloyd .. or you expressing?

  • then.there.were.threeGood for you! Stuff what anyone else says... xx
  • kellyne76Hi Maddie.. just incase u ever need to change formulas, I can highly recommend the Karicare Goat 🐐. They say it's the closest thing to breast milk and is easier on their little tummies. Both my little ones went on to this formula after breast feeding and they loved it! In fact, I had a job getting them off it 😂. Good luck 😘😘 @maddi_and_lloyd
  • maddi_and_lloyd@carolynburnsmcc lloyd did the night feed and it worked!!!!! Hello sleep :) x
  • carolynburnsmcc@maddi_and_lloyd oh yay! See, I ALWAYS give good advice ☺️🤓
  • the_adventurous_mumSo glad to see someone else loving MAM Bottles - our daughter loved them! 🙌💕
