OUr home day is identical Sleepless only he gets bottles in the day but I can see it going down and down. I'll ask nursery to give him the bottles with his snacks as a starting point and take it from there. smile

I already struggle with DS fitting in his pre lunch bottle (unless we have lunch at 2pm!!) so now he usually only has about 4oz about 11:30am.
When he goes to nursery though they have lunch at 11:30 so I'm thinking he'll have:
7am bf
8:00 breakfast in nursery
10:00 snack
11:30 lunch
2 pm snack
3:30 dinner
In fact looking at this his pre dinner bottle (about 430pm) is also looking in doubt. I'll send him in with 2 bottles but looking at the schedule I dont see him being hungry enough.
What do others do? We're doing BLW and would normally eat together approx 5:30pm, if I changed this to a bottle then I'm thinking his 7pm (8oz) bedtime feed would be at risk. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm probably over thinking this again :O
