Hi, my DS is nearly 14 months. He is in nursery 4 full days a week. I'm wondering whether he's having too much milk? He eats his meals well.
On a typical day he has:
7:30 6oz cows milk bottle at home 8:30 Cereal at nursery 10:00 snack, eg crackers & fruit 11:30 lunch - hot meal with pudding, eg risotto & crumble Nap 2:30 bottle 6oz cows milk 3:00 snack, pitta breads or toast & beans 5:00 home cooked tea given at nursery but provided by me 6:00 snack at home e.g. yogurt or weetabix 6:30 bedtime bottle, 7oz cows milk
So 3 bottles in total still. 3 months ago I focused on getting him off breast feeding & onto cows/bottle ready for nursery, but now wondering whether I need to start cutting these bottles out - maybe moving to cup?
DS is 12 months and just has a morning and bedtime bottle but I can't imagine why it would be a problem unless he's gaining far too much weight or rejecting food in favour of it. I think bottles are supposed to be phased out by 12 months but I'm not too fussed about ds keeping his. I'd give DS more milk during the day if he'd take it but he seems to prefer water.
