    Does anyone have advice about how to stop breastfeeding? My daughter is 7montjd old and will not take a bottle. I'm going back to work in November and work shifts so would like to stop BF herbsoon but it's stressing me out that she refuses every bottle I give her

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Try these out..

    Cut out night feeds to reduce your supply of milk over all.

    Try different bottle and teat types. I've heard that a dream feed with a bottle can sometimes be used to introduce a bottle successfully.

    My friend's baby wouldn't take a bottle but would take milk from a soft spout beaker so she went with that.

    I introduced a dream feed which helped her to take a bottle and also used nuk bottles as the teats are supposed to be more like nipples? She only would take a bottle morning and night though so gave her normal food during the day from about 8/9 months. I introduced formula by mixing it with her cereal although once she started eating proper food she was less fussy with that. In terms of reducing feeding I did it gradually by initially cutting out night feeding which really reduces your supply and then gave her a bottle before bed and finally ditched the morning feed :) good luck
