@Lauren my LO starts nursery full time in Jan so I’m hoping she’ll naturally wean herself off daytime feeds too, if I can’t wean her before then.
How did your boobs cope when she started nursery. Did you have to pump/hand express to stop engorgement or anything?
Yup, mine has had no interest the couple of times I’ve offered it in an open cup. But I will be more consistent now she’s 1.
I have heard oat milk is similar tasting to breastmilk x
@Shana she has always been a bottle refuser, so I’m thinking to try her with a straw cup/open cup.
Water and snacks are a good shout, I’ll see if that works. I do feed to sleep for naps and bedtime, so I’ll have shuffle the routine around x
My little girls exclusively breastfed (tried to mix feee from early but she hated formula and the bottle even if I expressed breast milk!). She naturally weaned herself off of daytime milk when she started nursery. Basically now she only feeds for a bit when she wakes up and before bed. Occasionally she will have it during the day if she’s getting a bit tired late in afternoon but she doesn’t need it anymore. Yet to tackle stopping the feed before bed! Have been giving eve cows milk in cereals for a while and she’s fine with it but if I try and tiger her milk to drink in her beaker she has no interest at all. Might try oat milk and see if she prefers the taste x
Does she take the bottle at all? We’ve replaced feeds with a snack or tried to offer her water. She has about 3 feeds a day, 2 of them are bottles either with breastmilk or formula mixed in with cows milk x
