my son is 8 months and still breastfeeding, i enjoy breastfeeding him but i feek its noe time to wean him onto bottles.. the only yhing is he wont take a bottle! i once gave him cow and gate formula and he came out in a kinda nettle sting rash?? i took him to my gp and he said he may be lactose intollerant and gave me soya milk and he hates it! he will not take it and i dont blame him i tasted it and its not very nice at all! its kinda wierd coz its usualy when he gets things with powdered milk in them like dried foods and formula he gets the rash.. with the formula milk he is sick as well.. he also wont eat! he is still taking things like mashed bannana and 4 mnth jars.. he doesnt eat the lumpier 7mnth jars he just chokes.. now im too paranoid to give him a variety of 'chunky bits' in his meals incase he chokes. my b.f keeps telling me the only way hel learn to eat the lumps without gagging is if i persivere and hold back on the paranoia, im scared that hes losing weight because he will only eat sweet things like deserts and he doesnt get that many breast feeds now that hes that bit older! i know iv wrote a lot for you to try and answer but hopefully you can give me some advise as i always forget to address certain topics with the stress of having a screaming baby in my health centre with me! usualy im just in a ruch to go home! thanks.. a very worried and stressed mum!
