DD will be 1 on the 26th and she has started to wean (I think). We are Epers and she had been taking 4oz 4 times a day. She is down to 3 x a day, and I think would skip her mid-day bottle in favor of more solids at lunch.
Here is her schedule:
6:45am 4 oz
8:15am Yogurt w/fruit and cheerios
12:15pm Jarred baby food veggie and fruit
12:45pm 4 oz
6:30pm Jarred dinner and fruit
7:15pm 4 oz
Her snack if either banana, raw green beans, crackers, puffs, pretzels, wheat bread, goldfish... etc. I have been trying to add more solids at lunch and dinner so we can be done with the jarred foods.
SO..... I would LOVE to start dropping a pumping session soon, but when will I know if I can try and drop another bottle. I would LOVE to be only pumping in the morning and at night by 15 months. Right now I am still pumping 6 x a day in order to get 3 4oz bottles (with an extra bottle for the next morning)
So my questions are:
When can I try and drop a bottle
When can I drop a pumping session
When can I try and add some whole milk to her BM in a sippy cup
When can she be off the bottle? Should I try and give her BM in a cup instead of the bottle, so we can quit the bottle but still be getting BM??
Thanks so much. As we get closer to weaning time, I am clueless and worried I will do something wrong and she will not be getting enough nutrition!!
