My oldest quit at a year & four months. The other four only went to about 9 months. Probably because they saw the others using sipee cups & wanted to
too! They still nursed before they went to bed at night, for a little while after they quit other times. I was sorry to see that stop, it always
settled them down & put them right to sleep!
I would pump & offer it in a cup if you can. Especially with all the junk that they say is in cow's milk now! Our youngest had an issue whenever I
drank milk while I was still nursing her. She would get severe colic! It took me a little while to figure out that it was cow's milk that was
triggering it. I'm not a big milk drinker, but I was having a bowl of cereal in the morning when I was giving the older ones breakfast!
Organic wasn't available in our area then yet, or I would have tried that! A friend of mine had the same thing happen with her youngest around the
same time too. I don't know if that's when things first started showing up in cow's milk or what. But our daughter has no dairy issues herself & none
of our other kids ever had colic!
Antibiotics, growth hormones, GMO's...Our family doctor says nobody should eat dairy or gluten! Her daughter is turning six, she doesn't give her
either one & she has never been sick! Our oldest had to have tubes put in his ears twice, at 2 & 5 years old. Which I read years after the fact, can
be because of dairy problems!
Just sharing some things that I found out over the years! I'm not a doctor, just a Mom!
