Hello everyone! My little boy will be 1 next week, we have started cows milk today, it is something I have been dreading as my LB wakes for 3 bottle's a night! I usually go to bed at 1 & make up 3 9oz bottles so they are boiling hot, he usually has woke to drink them before they have gone cool. (I know your not supposed to do this, but I have been doing this since he was 2 months old as he was waking 8 times a night, he has never been sick in his life) So now im dreading tonight, as I am going to be having to go up & down warming cows milk bottles up while listening to a screaming inpatient baby. You might think I am lazy making an issue over this, but since I had my baby I have been really unwell, back an forward the doctors, feel tired and drained constantly so every second of sleep counts, as my baby is hyper. (Hopefully I will be better soon! Booked in for an ultrasound on my cervix! Hopefully it's nothing bad!) What do you all do when it comes to cows milk? I know milk spoils so quick, so wouldn't risk my baby getting sick because of my problems. I have a thermal bottle bag, can I put 2 in cold? Would they be okay? Thanks in advance everyone xxx
It's a long time since mine were that age but they were sleeping through from 5 months old. Is your son eating enough during the day so he's full enough to sleep through? At 1 I would have thought he shouldn't really be waking to feed.
I threw away bottles when mine moved to cows milk at 11 months. They had sippy cups from then. I never warmed cows milk for them.
Tbh I'd try and deal with the sleeping before you switch to cows milk. Only for the very reason that u can keep carts and sterile bottles in your room or a bottle of cooled boiled water , tubs of powder all measured out and a thermos flask of hot water to make up the bottles.
How's his eating in the day? Is all this milk stopping him from eating enough?
