Hello! Lo is 8 mo now, so I know Im posting on this board a little premature, but I thought you would be able to help me more because you are there now. We have been doing BLW since he was 6mo, and I am amazed at how good he has gotten with solids in the past month. His diapers have changed and it is clear he is starting to actually swallow. We were on vacation last week with a couple that had a 9.5mo and she was on purees. Everyone was amazed at how easy and how well my little guy ate!
Anyway, how will I know when to start decreasing his bottles? He has been taking about an ounce less than he usually does in each bottle, and I figured that was the solids filling him up so he didnt need that extra ounce. He gets 5 bottles a day. Most of his bottles are around 9oz, but there is a 3oz bottle in there. Will he just start taking less at each feeding, or will refuse a feeding all together? Sometimes i have a tough time telling if he is done or not. Once he gets distratcted and starts chewing the nipple instead of sucknig is when I usually stop feeding him.
