Thumbs down She doesn't like it

Cora really isn't interested in soy milk one bit. I tried to give her some in a bottle today at 3, when she has been getting a bottle of formula, and she kept pushing it away. What do I do if she doesn't drink it? Did anyone else feel weird about not giving their little one's a bottle of formula at first? It just seems so weird to me to even think about stopping her formula. We still have a whole can left so we'll finish that off, but I'm going to miss our formula feeding snuggle time. How did all the other babies do when you switched them to whole milk? Any suggestions?

Since you still have formula, why don't you try splitting the bottle with 25% soy milk & 75% formula (or whatever way you want to split it) and then gradually introduce more milk and less formula. That's the way I did it since Noah wouldn't drink straight milk initially. This way she'll still have the taste of the formula while getting used to the milk. Have you tasted the soy milk? I personally think it's definitely something to work up to liking. It still felt strange the first time I have them a whole bottle of just milk but it is sooooo much cheaper this way for me.

I agree with Erinn, i switched Ava the week before she was 11 months. It took a full week of mixing before she was on straight milk. At first she was leary of it, becuse her bottles have all been room temp. Now the milk is cold, and she takes it in and out of her mouth. She does take it out and look at me and go ,"uuummmmmmm", so i feel better that she likes it. I have not yet gone to sippy cups. She drinks juice/water out of them, but wanted to take it one at a time with her. Good luck

I think the trick is to mix it in increasing amounts until she's used to it. Aislinn is on 3-4 oz. of milk to 2-3 oz. of formula per bottle right now. I tried giving her straight milk in a sippy cup the first day just to see how she'd react, and she would have nothing to do with it.

I agree with the mixing idea.
