Now your baby is eating solids, what age did they/you cut down on their BFing/formula amount? Did you cut down or did they stop taking as much?

It took her awhile to cut down. We started her on solids at 6 months and it wasn't until about 10-11 months that she cut down on a few of her nursing sessions.

I'm glad you posted this. My Health Visitor today said Kirsty should be having 20oz now that she is having 3 meals per day... she has around 23/24oz. The HV asked me to try and drop to 3 bottles per day but I don't feel that Kirsty is ready.

She has 5oz for breakfast lunch & dinner, and 8-9oz at bedtime. Often when she has her dinnertime bottle, at around 4/4:30pm, she enjoys it so much she cries when it's all gone, bless her! I don't think I will cut back though. She eats a good amount of food so it's not "putting her off" eating solids.

awww bless Kirsty, she really likes her milk huh!

Evan has only just started being introduced to solids but he hasn't cut down the amount he feeds at all! He still feeds on demand anywhere up to 10/12 times a day
Thanks to Claire1979 for my gorgeous siggy!
