i've kind of ask the same in formula feeding but i'm so confused and could do with some advice and thought more people would see this, and its not really confined to just formula feeding if you no what i mean! anyhow hope its ok mods to post this in here too please move if not anyhow maddi is currently still on 4 x 7oz bottles of formula - one with each meal and one at bedtime, she is now over 9months and i do offer her water/juice in beaker throughout the day but i'm wondering if i should drop the lunchtime bottle and just offer juice/water? she's trying with the beaker but she's not the best at it but do keep trying, but i'm worried she'll get dehydrated! help! what do/did you do with regards to dropping bottles, tbh i'd rather not drop them, but at the same time i no she's getting older now help!!!!!!
