Are your little ones still having milk and how much? My son has a cows milk & soy allergy so he’s under a dietician and they recommended that until he’s 2 he needs 150ml twice a day of his prescribed pepti formula or almond milk (this is what he’s suggested to have to ensure he gets calcium due to the allergies) But...

Reaction to camp formula

I’ve been exclusively breastfeeding my lg now for 13 weeks and if she didn’t have a milk allergy my original plan was to stop breastfeeding at 6 months and switch her to formula.

Reduced formula intake

How much formula are your little ones having? We are 14 weeks and she has started to drink less than she was. Should I be concerned? She is still having wet nappies but is also sick alot as has had reflux since birth but nothing seems to help 🤦‍♀️ We have about 800/850 mls ( about 28oz) a day.

Steriliser recommendations

I have no idea where to start! But looking for reccomendations for sterilisers, we don’t have or use a microwave, most I have seen are microwave ones! I’m going to try MAM bottles or avent not sure if that affects the choice of sterilisers!

Cows milk transition

My baby is soon to turn one in a couple of weeks. How do I go about the whole formula to cows milk transition … which bottle should I switch to cows milk, morning or bed? What about the night time feed? Full fat I assume? If I started her a week or so before she’s 1 is that ok or best to wait until she is actually 1?
