When does he have lunch? If lunch is at 11.30am you could start moving the 10.30am bottle forward and reducing it by 30ml every few days. At lunchtime gradually start replacing this bottle with water with the meal. You can increase the other bottles. DD is 9m, has 3x 210ml bottles a day - 7.30am, 2.30pm & 6.30pm, with 3 meals at 8.15am, 11.30/12pm & 5pm
Thanks for the advice. I agree and thought the health visitor was perhaps a bit misguided with her information. The last few days he's successfully taken 6oz before his afternoon nap which brings him much nearer to 20oz. Perhaps it was a temporary thing! Thanks.
My ds is 8.5mo and has been on 4 bottles at 7am 10.30am 2.30pm and 7pm with 3 smallish meals. For the past 2 days he has refused his mid morning and and mid afternoon feeds - so effectively down to 2 bottles a day, roughly 14oz. I spoke to health visitor and she wasn't at all concerned, but I though milk was supposed to be their main source of nutrition until 1? I have offered water instead, which he has a few sips of, should I offer him a snack too? So confusing!
