My lo just turned 9 months old today. I've been breastfeeding/bottle feeding pumped milk to him all along and we started solids at about 7 months. He used to breastfeed/take a bottle about 6 times a day, but is now down to 4, sometimes 5. He usually easts solids (a mix of cereal, yogurt, cottage cheese and veggies and fruits) about 2 times a day.
I'd love to drop that sometimes 5th feeding, as it usually occurs about 1 in the morning (sometimes he doesn't wake up for it or just goes back to sleep without it and not crying), but I'm worried that he won't then get as much breastmilk as he should.
I'd prefer not to add another pumped bottle (my other option given that I'm working part-time) because it takes about 2 pumping sessions to get just one bottle.
I guess my question is this: at 9 months, are 4 breastfeeding sessions/bottles a day enough?
