Hi all

DS loosely follows the GF routines. I am a bit confused about the 2.30pm feed and when this should be reduced/dropped. I ask because for the last couple of weeks DS has been cutting back on his 6.30pm feed from 8oz to 3/4oz some nights. In her book she says to reduce or even cut out this feed if they are getting 20oz from milk/yoghurt/food and a balanced diet (DS eats EVERYTHING!! grin)

I am breastfeeding at 7am and 2.30pm and FF at 6.30pm so I don't actually know how much he is having at 2.30 (he currently has both breasts).

I am interested as to when/how other GF-ers reduced/cut out this feed. And do you replace it with a snack at some point?


PS - I don't mean to be rude but could anti-GF people refrain from posting any unhelpful comments, I know its not everyone's cup of tea. smile

I am reducing one of DD2s feeds by giving her expressed milk in a bottle for this feed, so I can slowly reduce it.

I then pump at least the amount she drank, to make sure it doesn't affect my supply.

DD1 dropped her 2.30pm feed at the recommended time, and I gave her an afternoon dairy snack instead.

I cut it out 2.30pm milk feed at about 10-11 months with both my boys & replaced it with a beaker of juice as milk was putting them off their tea.Both FF.
I gave them a milky pudding or yoghurt after lunch,about 12pm. Then tea at 5pm. Then they had a good milk feed at about 7pm.
