We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

Is it enough?

DD is 8 months and has 1 breastfeed a day (at night when she goes to sleep) PLUS a mini-feed at about 3am

She doesn't take formula or any milk out of a bottle / cup / whatever

She is on full solids .. 3 meals, each of which always include milk or cheese or yogurt, plus 2 snacks and drinks water

Is it enough in terms of calcium intake though? I don't know how to increase it any further if its not

yes YG I try to make sure she does

eg today

breakfast ... ready brek with whole cow's milk, followed by natural yogurt

snack .. brocolli spears (leftovers )

lunch ... chicken and veg plus yogurt with apple in it

snack .. rice cakes

dinner .. pasta with cheese and veg and another yogurt

then BF to bed

I just worry she should be having 3 milk drinks (and some days she doesn't get 'milk' products at every meal but she does at least twice a day)

I agree, that sounds fine.

wonder when you stop having those niggly doubts at the back of your mind

(she is a fat, glorious, giggly little buddah ... gawd knows why I worry)

Sounds fine to me too twig - ds isn't having much more that (a bf when he wakes, but only a small one). I think I remember reading that cheese has far more calcium in it than milk - so a small piece is the equivalent of a bottle. I'm going to carry on believing that anyway.
