    Default Number of nursings - cows milk?

    I need some advice. My daughter is 14 months and I've decided to quit pumping for her afternoon bottle at daycare. I will still nurse mornings, lunchtime, and before bed. Is there any need for cows milk (or alternatives) or can she just get water at school since I am still nursing 3x a day?

    Let me know your thoughts,

    As long as you and your DD are OK with it, I say go for it. Water would be a good alternative, or cow's milk, juice, whatever you feel comfortable with. DD gets cow's milk at mealtimes and water or very watered-down juice (infrequently) in between meals at DC, and it is the same at home on the weekends, but we still nurse on demand, too at home.

    Our dd nurses 2-3 times a day. She gets 1-2 cups of milk and 1 cup of watered down juice and water the rest of the time. She's growing fine.

    I'm in the don't ask, don't refuse, stage.
