Sometimes a mother wants to stop breast-feeding but her baby seems to
want to keep it up. If you can, keep breast-feeding a while longer. Try
offering your milk or formula in a cup or bottle before you breast-feed or between
breast-feedings. There are also different bottle nipples you can try.
Some babies grow attached to the bottle and do not want to give it up.
Don't let your baby crawl, walk around, or go to bed with a bottle. Nighttime
feedings are often the hardest to give up. Try replacing that feeding with new
habits, such as reading a book or looking at the stars together.
