Worried about overfeeding....

my ds is nearly 7 months, we have been weaning for about 5 weeks. We have introduced some full fat dairy products recently and they have gone down well - babybel , from age frais, yoghurt, rice pudding and porridge with cows milk etc. However, ds has only dropped one milk feed at lunchtime so far (ebf). He still has 4 bfs during the day and 2/3 at night! Should I not be giving him so much dairy if he has not dripped the milk yet, or do I need to get him to have it in order for him to drop the milk? Not quite sure which way it works. He probably has 2 servings of dairy a day, eg porridge then yoghurt after his lunch etc.

I think that your milk is the most important thing and that he'll drop feeds when he's ready, if he's eating everything you're offering I say carry on as you are. ( I'm not an HCP mind )

Is really early to think about dropping feeds. That didn't happen until closer to 9 months and DS even then would revert back!
