Babies: 9 - 12 Months

milk question

okay so DS will be 1 next month Crying

I'm wanting to start introducing milk now,should i do it just a little at a time or can i give him a sippy full and just let him drink what he wants?

Also I'm trying to wean him off BM-right now he only BF in the afternoon for his nap and then bedtime. My question is this: what do I do when he wakes up in the middle of the night wanting to feed? I know with the afternoon feeding i can just feed him lunch when i would normally BF and then before bed he eats dinner but I'm worried he's gonna wanna eat throughout the night,he's currently waking up at least once to feed.

Re: milk question

  • I am trying to get DD to drink cow's milk too and it's not going so well.  Mostly because she won't take anything from a bottle or cup at this point.  Today, I read on the kellymom website that the best way to transition is to start with 1/4 cow's milk and 3/4 BM in a bottle or cup and increase the cow's milk amount by 1/4 each week until LO is completely off of BM.  As far as night wakings, I really don't think (as long as LO's weight and health are good) there is any reason he needs to be waking for feedings.  It's probably more of a habit at this point than a need.  But, if you do want to continue to feed him at night, I would feed him small amounts of milk and decrease the amount each week to hopefully eliminate the nighttime feedings.  Good luck!
