i started weaning my dd 7 mo old a month ago. now she is fed 3 times a day with solid food. her routine is
6.30 am breastmilk
8.00 breakfast
12.30 lunch
3.00 formula milk 4oz
5.00 tea
7.00 bottle 6oz
12.00 bottle 6oz

i would like to know if i'm feeding her well & she drops her milk feed sometimes. she wouldnt breastfeed but when i give her a bottle she does take it. am i giving her tea & bedtime bottle in less gap? coz she very often takes only 3/4 oz in bedtime

similar to what i did except i just bf, no formula. eventually i pushed afternoon feed back later to about 4.30 and then she fed once more at about 8.30 and no night feed.

I'm similar my DD is 8 months and
7.00am formula feed 8oz
9.00am breakfast (weetabix)
11.00 formula 5-6oz
12.00 lunch
12.30-1.0pm formula 5-6oz
3.00pm formula 5-6oz
5.00pm tea
6.00pm formula 5-6oz then bed

when is her bedtime, it isnt 12.00 is it? if it is and she's only taking 3-4 oz i'd say drop that one.

Sorry I don't understand what is it your asking, blush are you asking if it's feasible to drop the 12.00 feed?

I wouldn't be in a rush to drop any more milk unless your DD really doesn't want it. Milk is their main source of nutrition until 1.

sorry i meant to ask if its normal for a baby of my dd's age to drop a milk feed. coz i'm concerned about that coz she often drops milk feed. i also wanted to know is there any harm if she drops her milk feed in a day?
