Aitch,

hows is mini you doing?

i was wondering, are there any negatives on weaning at 16 weeks?

will it help dd to sleep?

still wakes every 3/4 hours,

stopped bf last week at 14 weeks,

dd little for her age,

any advice? smile

(tis just jule s here)

<nosey> grin

and adds tuppence worth........

it won't make her sleep, disadvantages are risks of future allergies, faffing with purees, and tasteless nutritionless gloop babyrice wink

just give her more formula jules, and use the first formula rather than hungrier baby, especially if stepping up from BM. the hungry baby stuff might be too much for her.

haven't seen you to chat for ages, hope all is well. Sorry about the BFing, were you having problems or stopping ahead of going bakc to work?

Hey daisy smile

lol at nosy grin

bf was always a struggle for me,

and today (now it is gone 12) is the one year anniversary of buring beautiful ds,

i decided that i wanted 'me' back (sorry if selfish but thats the way it is)

my period had come back last week and i want some normality so i made the decision to stop,

i am glad i managed 14 weeks,

not too sad i didnt do more,

dd has always been a light sleeper,

she is not a food fan,

she just 'snacks' on 4 oz at a time,

it is ok,

she is growing,

just slowly...

i thought maybe she would like something other than milk,

am i wrong? smile

sad jules. I hope you are doing OK today. Much hugs lovely lady smile

And well done for getting to 14 weeks! You are not selfish at all; we all do what we can and do our best and you have given her a fantastic start in life smile. And given what you have been through in the last few years getting your own body back seems like a very reasonable thing to me.

But, on the weaning front, there is really no need for anything other than milk for a good few weeks yet smile

hopefully Aitch will see this and have more advice for you. Have you had a look at her blog in the meantime?

Take Care and if you need to chat, you know where I am.

thinking of you all today xx
