Bottle vs. Breastfeeding
How you choose to feed your little one can make a difference in how difficult it may be to wean them. Neither is necessarily easy, but knowing what to expect can help you make the transition with fewer headaches.
Bottle feeding – whether it’s breast milk or formula – can be a bit easier to transition. Bottles are easier to take away if you need to quit cold turkey. You can also introduce sippy cups a bit easier since they already have an idea of how a cup works.
Breastfeeding can be a bit more difficult, especially if mom is the primary caretaker. It can’t be taken away as easily as a bottle; most breastfed babies automatically associate the presence of mom with feeding time. Also, sippy cups feel and taste a lot different from the bare skin of a breast.
