  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    It can be tough for the mother to end her baby's breastfeed and make a changeover to formula. One has to make a physical as well as emotional amendment. Though babies are fond of their everyday habits, they are incredibly compliant; hence, they could accept new things in a shorter period than you can imagine.
    However, babies still frequently reject the formula at first; so one has to be very patient to try more than once to coddle the baby to drink formula from a bottle. A number of babies merely set out to seize whatever is given to them, while several others may initially decline a bottle especially if their mums are the ones to offer them. This is because the babies have an inclination to recognize the odor of their mums and hence, desire the original lovable breast milk. This changeover could be made easy by requesting other family members to give the first few bottles.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
