Hi All. For a variety of reasons I want to start reducing breast feeds and swap to formula. My daughter is 4.5 months and exclusively breast fed. I want to do it gradually to give us both time to adjust. At the moment her feeds are: 7am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm then a night feed which can be anywhere from 1am to 5am. My question is if I plan to swap one feed per week, which feed should I start with and in which order do I swap them? Thanks.

Really don't think it matters, some people want to ditch the bedtime feed first to free them up for nights out, others want to drop this one last. It's entirely upto you which order you swap them over smile

Maybe the 1pm so she goes down for a nap quicker?
Resulting in you getting more time

Or;
The middle of the night and let your partner do it.
