my dd is nearly 11 months old, and has an on/off relationship with milk - especially her afternoon bottle. should I be thinking of weaning her off it now anyway, and if so, should I replace the bottle with a snack? she drinks about 4oz in the morning from a bottle, the rest goes in her cereal, and about 6oz from a bottle before bed. And how did anyone find moving onto a beaker?!! any advice appreciated! x
ds started using a beaker for one of his milk feeds from about 9 months. As his intake increased from the beaker I started moving his other feeds to the beaker too. He was off bottles by 10 1/2 months. Why not offer the afternoon milk in a lidded beaker along with a snack and use it as an opportunity to introduce the idea of milk from a cup. She doesnt have to take much at first as she can make up the intake in the other 2 bottles.
