I think DD is outgrowing her schedule. Here it is right now (similar for the last 4 months):
7am - wake up and BF (lots)
8 or 9: cereal and fruit for breakfast
11: 4-5oz EBM (or BF if I'm home from work ie w/e)
12:30: lunch (varies, lots of table foods)
4: 4-5 oz EBM (or BF)
5:30: dinner (cereal, meat/veg etc)
6:30: BF ++ and bed
her mid- am and pm bottles have gradually been getting later since she can stay up longer, and take longer naps (yay!) Now they are starting to meld into mealtimes, especially if she sleeps extra long. Then she fills up with milk and isn't as hungry.
In 2 months, she's going to daycare, who has the routine of breakfast at home, early am snack, lunch at 11:15, snack around 2 and then she'll have dinner at home. With such an early lunch, there's no way she can drink milk before it. When she's 12 months and starts there, I want to cut out the EBM and just BF am and bedtime, and give her the rest as cow's milk.
... what do I do? Is it ok to just give her 1 bottle of EBM, maybe 6oz after lunch, and add a morning and pm food snack instead of the milk? Then it would be BF, breakfast, snack, lunch and EBM, snack, dinner, and BF/bed. It seems like plenty, but DH and I aren't sure if it will work.
(also, I know she's taking less than 8-10oz during the day when I BF ad lib with her on weekends, because during the week, pumping 8-10oz in one session at noontime at work actually INCREASES my supply over the course of the week!
Any suggestions? What/when does your 9-12 month eat?
