weaning off


For the past 3 months I have tried to wean off sofea from breastfeeding, which starts when sofea is 1 year and 10 months. I know most mommies out there would say, why not wait until 2 years? 

well i have my own reasons:
1- sofea rejects bottle/sippy, whether I am around her or when I am not around her, whether it is my milk or other type of milk. so I feel that I need to teach her to drink my ebm or any other milk from bottle/sippy, so that when in case of emergency, she still can depends on other type of milk

2- that time I planned to send her to half day playschool, but it is kinda hard if she doesn't want to drink milk at school, and she was also a picky eater so that worries me much. 

so I guess weaning off slowly is the only way to get her to learn to drink milk... but fussy sofea still cries for my milk whenever I am around her -_-"

during the wean off period, I tried several 'methods' suggested by other mommies, e.g - plaster, minyak cap kapak, colgate, coffee, conteng, mimijumi bottle, all sorts of bottle, cute sippy cups.. but sadly these kind of 'methods' only work for a few hours.. some doesn't work at all.. and the next thing I know sofea will be crying and screaming very loudly especially at 2 A.M asking for 'nenen' -_-"

so, how do I get her to completely wean off? well since I had an emergency surgery last week and had to be warded, so I figured that it was a good time to wean her off completely. As I returned home from hospital, she still asked for 'nenen' during naptime, but I told her that I am in pain.. and alhamdulillah she understands and continue to sleep without her milk =)

and last night, I made formula milk inside her mimijumi bottle and she drank around 1 oz and dozed off straight until this morning!! finally at 2 years 1 month, sofea is completely weaned off my milk, alhamdulillah ^_^
