how many bottles does your LOs get a day and how much formula or breast milk is in there?
DS is breastfed. I work third shift so he gets four bottles a day with 5 ounces each (one when he wakes up when I am still at work, three at daycare). Sometimes he eats again after daycare but not sure how much (from the breast). So 20-25 ounces. He has three meals a day as well.
Mine are getting 1 4 oz bottle in the morning, 1 8 oz bottle in the afternoon and 1 8 oz bottle before bed. I've been supplementing meals with more food and also introduced them to watered down apple juice in sippy cups. They only drink one cup of juice a day and most days they don't finish the one cup. We also do snack time with the puffs. They are good at letting me know that they are hungry (or tired) and both seem to like the new schedule.
I'm hoping this will make it easier to ween them off the bottle when the time comes.
Until the past week, 3 5 oz bottles of BM during the day, BF morning, 2x in the evening and 0-1x MOTN.
This week, she's dropping one of her DC bottles.
