my son will be 1 in about 3.5 weeks and he's formula fed. He currently has 4 x 7oz bottles a day. Is it ok if I drop it to 3? He has one when he wakes at 7am. Then another at 11am. Then one about 3.30pm then his bedtime bottle about 6.30. I know he won't even notice if I just completely drop a bottle, but one should it be? I did try cutting his 11am bottle to half the amount of milk and the 3pm bottle to half the amount but he just got angry when he would finish it and crack it. So it's definitely an easier option to just drop the whole bottle. So what one? 11am or 3? What did you do?
Also should I be completely getting rid of his bottles and feeding him in his sippy cup? I don't plan on giving him cows milk as he is lactose intolerant and I would rather just continue using a lactose free toddler formula. The sippy cup he uses has an inbuilt straw so he drinks from that throughout the day if I make him a fresh fruit juice or he has water after lunch. Should his formula go into that? Or should I be using a standard sippy cup..
