He is 1 in less than 3 weeks and he is barely BF now.. He has one good feed in the morning and one in the evening, but otherwise he just feeds for a few minutes and then pulls off. He seems to want his cup more..
my DS1 cut down to morning, evening and overnight at 12m. he dropped his night feed about 15m and dropped the morning feed at about 18m but kept up bedtime til I encouraged him off when he was 2 cos I was [regnant and due again soon!
DS2 is 15m and has dropped his afternoon feed in till has morning and bedtime (and a criminal amount overnight!!!)
so when he pulls off quickly its just a snack now, not a feed, he feeds so lovely in the morning, laying down with me on my bed, all sleepy... and the last one, in the chair in his room, I think I forget he is nearly 1 and not going to feed like before. I gave BF at 6 months with the others, so was still giving them 4-5 bottles a day at this stage..
yes, just a snack really. he is eating 3 meals a day, and you say he is having water as well to drink. (he gulped down that cup of water your dd1 gave him the other day after his nap), so really its just 'snacking' during the day. he is far too active and interested in the world around him to have long feeds now.
thats not to say he wont go back to long feeds during the day, as some babies do, and he may want one before his naps as well.
but I want him to be my baby forever and BF forever lol!! Its gone too fast, and the first 6 months were tainted by the 'Health care professionals' and now I enjoy it and am not worrying about his weight, he starts to snack... blomming typical!!!!!
