J is almost 13 months. She is still bf'd except i work from 9-5 everyday so currently she nurses at:
6pm when we get home
8pm before bed
and a few times through the night.
She actually never wants to nurse when she wakes up in the morning.
i don't want to pump for her while im at work, so i have the sitter *trying* to get her to drink cows milk. However she doesn't like it... she drinks i think 3oz maybe the whole day that im gone, and drinks water the rest of the time. She flat out refuses formula or toddler milk. This is going on 4 weeks now
I do try to get her to have yogurt and cheese to get her calcium requirements. Any suggestions how to get her to drink the milk? or should i not worry about it?
Fran only has 2 milk drinks a day - first thing in the morning and at bedtime. Sometimes she will only have 2 or 3 oz, other times she drains 9. She tends to have more in the morning and a small amount at bedtime though.
As long as LO is getting plenty of dairy in her diet then she should be fine love. Fran usually has 2 small pots of fromage frais per day and then whatever cheese etc she has in her meals. Plus you can get extra milk in her by giving her cereals too xx
i have wondered about flavouring Laura. I could pump and mix but im now 3 weeks into not feeding during the day, and it would be hard to re-establish the supply to get the extra feed.
I spoke to the sitter this morning and she is now drinking 3oz of 2% milk (refuses homo milk, so we were mixing it with water, but it makes more sense to just give 2%). and get this.. she is picky about what brand of milk has to be Natrel milk (the more expensive of the ones available here )
