Thread: How much BM/liquids?

    Default How much BM/liquids?

    My LO is almost 8 months and LOVES her solids!! I feed her about 4oz 3x a day. I still nurse 4-5x a day. My goal for the future is to just nurse first thing in the morning and right before bed-time for as long as she'll let me but offer solids during the day. The few times that we've skipped nursing (the dinner-time feeding) and just offered solids she's done fine it's me that's the problem! I just want to make sure she's getting enough liquids. We have no problem with constipation and she has plenty of wet diapers, I just need to know how to supplement with fluids. She refuses water (even in a bottle) and I don't want her to get stuck on juice. Any suggestions?

    At this age you shouldn't start skipping nursing sessions yet, her main nutrition should still be coming from breast milk till she is 1.
