Ds is almost 8 months, started weaning at 6 with no problems. He is formula fed and still wanting milk throughout the day. After reading a thread here yesterday it became apparent that he is having too much formula (28oz) and by now should be down to around 20oz a day. Today I decided to do 3x7oz bottles and offer a snack mid morning and mid afternoon as well as meals.
He has seemed happy enough with what he;s had and isn't crying for milk so I think its ok but I have a few questions. What times do you offer meals, bottles and snacks? How many naps do you fit in?
I seem to have spent the whole day preparing food, a bottle or doing nap time! When am I supposed to do other stuff? I feel like I'm back to the days of feeding every 2 hours
Glad it wasn't just me! We do a combination of purses and finger food (mostly finger food) and he does eat quite a lot. He's 7.5o months and was 19lb 11oz last week on 50th centile so not overweight at all.
Is it me or are we all just making it up as we go along?
Definetly a lot of blagging involved with parenting. at that age, dd had morning and night bottle (8oz each) plus a 4oz bottle before her am nap and a 4oz bottle before her pm nap. Just seemed right for her.
Now she is 11mo and has a 7oz at each morning and night bottle and at some point in the day will have 5oz. Plus a couple of oz on her breakfast cereal.
Bottles at wake up, 11, 3 and bedtime, breakfast 8ish, lunch 1 and tea 6ish he was having all his milk.
He was born on 91st centile is now between 98th and 99th but he's very tall too. We gradually dropped his day bottles to 2x 4oz and he didn't look for it at all which surprised me. Your lo might not look for it either
