my son is 10 months old and is not taking a juice cup nor bottle of breast milk...i've found out recently i'm not producing enough milk now and it's too early for whole milk so we have decided to give him formula as while...but he will not even put his mouth on his cup or a bottle. Has anyone went through this? He is eating solids 3times day with snacks but is still a little underweight and the dr wants him to gain more. He would literally strave his self before he drinks from something else beside my breast.

Nurse him as often as possible and start taking fenugreek. Pump when he is not nursing to increase your supply.

eat more, let him constantly nurse, and take supplements if you HAVE too. your milk will build up. plus at ten months he shouldnt need near as much milk as in the past.. he should be eating more
