I hadn't really thought about weaning my son off bottles until I took him to the doctor's this week and she gave me a handout saying he should be having 3 bottles (6-8oz each) a day for a total of 24oz. We were giving him 5 bottles...at a total of 28oz a day still. Oops! I had been giving him sippy cups with meals but he has zero interest, bites on them, chokes and makes a big mess. We since discovered there are transition cups and picked those up and he is taking to those a bit better. I also switched to 3 bottles a day but now he seems cranky but it could be my imagination. My doctor also said he could start to have a little bit of homo milk now too (haven't started yet) as long as he is eating 12tbsps of solids a day which he is. My son's weight is above average (the doctor never mentioned any concerns, I was the one asking about how much to feed him).
Would you still give 28oz or go by the doctor's handout and do 24oz as in 3 bottles a day?
When they get to a year, is that when you just switched to sippy cups only? Did you do it cold turkey or gradually?
Did you add homo milk and formula together or give the homo milk separately?
So, confused, how did you go about weaning from bottles?
PS - I know that you don't take them off formula until a year.
