I use whole milk for all of us as I read it was better for you, it contains more vitamins.

Have you tried cutting down to three feeds? Maybe he's just ready to drop a feed.

Hi Button# how are you? It's been a while since I last posted - it's been hectic! How's weaning going? Since I cut down to 3 feeds my boy has been feeding better and bow definitely showing signs of cutting down to 2 feeds a day but u still offer an afternoon feed which he rarely takes! Food wise were stuck with the same foods - not had the energy to try anything new. Been offering cows milk in a cup but he won't have any of it and no interest in using cutlery either x

It's been hectic here too, we've had nearly every bug going I think. I haven't tried many new foods either, same reason as you, too tired. I haven't tried cows milk in a cup yet and I've not tried cutlery either, still doing preloaded spoons of yoghurt.

My DD is starting to cut out night feeds, she actually slept through until 5.15 the night before last. I'm also planning to start weaning her off the breast after her birthday. Remember you need to offer something several times before they'll try it sometimes, I think I've read it can take 10 times of offering, so keep going with the cows milk.

Congratulations on the good sleep. How many times does she nurse during the day? I'm planning to wean off the breast after his first birthday as well - although I feel ready to stop now and he doesn't seem too interested either....loves his food! I worry his intake of dairy is too low so would like him to take milk in s cup but he just won't do it! Got to keep trying x

She feeds 5 times a day, including her 5am ish one which I suppose is technically still a night feed and her bedtime feed. Luckily her brother has milk for a drink still so she generally wants whatever he's got!

Hello how are things?

I've gone back to work this week so everything has been manic!

Is your baby 1 yet? My turns 1 on Saturday. Can't believe it!!! Any signs of weaning off the breast? I'm very keen but little one still wants to feed morning and night time. Only for a couple of minutes though which makes me wonder if he really needs it!

Hiya, yes mine was one last Friday. Can't believe how fast it's gone!

I've introduced cows milk and she's dropping feeds pretty quickly. We've lost the mid morning and mid afternoon one and a night feed and we're down to one about 5ish and a bedtime one. I'm pushing it a bit more than planned as she's started biting again.

How are you getting on with the cows milk? I remember another baby when my son was teeny didn't like cows milk and his mum was advised that it was ok if he had plenty of dairy in other forms such as cheese and yoghurt. Are you planning anything nice for you LOs birthday?

We are having a very small family party in our house in the afternoon.

He has started taking cows milk in a cup but only at snack time. Before bed he still demands the boob.
