Is there a formula that doesn't taste absolutely, unbelievably disgusting? I have some samples and I mixed some up and put it in a sippy cup for Lyla. I can't pump more than an ounce or two anymore and don't want to 'waste' BM in a sippy she won't finish. Anyway, it smells amazingly awful and tastes worse. Its like rancid BM x10!
I am considering weaning her soon, but I won't be able to if all formula is that awful.
Well, in the 21+ years I've been feeding formula....I haven't came across one that tastes or smells good. That's just how it tastes.
Not sure when you are considering stopping BF but we are slowly now transitioning to whole milk for Delaney. Only whole milk or juice in the sippy cup for us. It was really easy when we moved Miranda over to sippy cups only too. She was off the bottle at 12mo.
Ashley,, I agree. That kind is for babies who have a harder time with the regular and that one smells the worst. Used to make me gag when I used it with my daycare kiddo..
I dont think there is really any formula that isnt going to stink. You can just try it and she might get used to the taste..

I wonder why don't they make it taste good? If adults wouldn't drink it, why do babies? BM is super sweet.
I also wonder this about some of the jarred baby foods. I went to a baby shower once where one of the games was to guess what flavors the foods were. People were passing them around and some were tasting them and everyone was saying "These are disgusting!" and I thought "why do we feed this to our babies then?" That was the moment I decided to make my own purees.
We use Enfamil A+ and it is disgusting, but Tristan doesn't seem to mind - he's used to it. Soon enough they will be on whole milk and that tastes a whole lot better
But breastfeeding, anymore, has become a huge hassle and time suck. It's just this crazy monkey wrestling event everytime and it has to be in her room in the nursing chair or she can't focus long enough to effectively nurse. I can't pump worth crap anymore either, so I don't have milk for the nursery at church or when we go out.
But I really think she's teething hardcore right now and so I'll wait a bit to see what happens with that, hoping the bottom teeth will pop through soon. But if there is no such thing as a decent tasting formula, then I don't think I can even do it.
