I know there is no right or wrong answer to this question as every baby is different but just interested to hear what your lo's drink.

Dd turned 9 months last week and has been ebf. I go back to work in 7 weeks so just started introducing some formula this week.
She's taking the bottle well if her dad gives her it and not me!

Here is what she has each day:

6am: bf
7am: breakfast (porridge, fruit, toast)
9.30am: drinks about 3oz from bottle then nap for 1-1.5 hours
12pm: lunch (sandwich, veg, yoghurt, rice cakes)
2.30pm: bf and nap for 30mins
4.30pm: dinner (whatever we are having followed by a pudding)
6pm: bath
6.30/6.45pm: bf or bottle then bed

At this age is it still OK to give her milk before her morning and afternoon nap?
Just interested to hear what others do. If you think she needs to cut down on her milk I'd like to do this before she starts nursery.

She eats a lot of dairy products so I know she will get the calcium she needs if she has less milk.

Thanks

My DS 9 months has:

5.30/6am - 4 oz
8.30/9. Weatabix or porridge
12 - Ella pouch & yogurt
2pm - 6 oz
4.30 - spag Bol/casserole/salmon & pasta etc
6/6.30pm - 6 oz bottle
7pm bed time.

So in 24hrs 26oz although when he's teething he sometimes doesn't eat as much, so tend to give him an extra 4 at 10.30 if he's not had breakfast or snack etc.

My almost 9mo has been ebf too and only has expressed bm in a bottle. I've had a few KIT days recently and this was her pattern as boob wasn't available during the daytime:

6:30am - bf for 11mins
7am - porridge
10am - snack (apple rice cake & water)
12ish - 150ml expressed bm
12:30 - lunch
2:30pm - snack (as earlier)
4pm - 150ml expressed bm
6:45pm - 30min bf to sleep
