Hi, I have a quick question if people would not mind giving their opinions: My sister in law dropped her daughters middle of the day breast feed at xmas- 9 months of age. Since then she has her on vegetables, fruit and water in a cup through the day. Apparently she has just started giving her yoghurt also, (but no milk feed at all other than moring/night. Is this ok???? My youngest is 5 weeks younger than her daughter and she still has about 5 breastfeeds a day, sometimes more. She had breakfast/lunch and dinner though and rusks or cruskits in between.
I just seriously can't imajine cutting a 9 month old down to this amount of feeds. She doesn't go to a mothers group or anything but does get advice from the clinic. Am I wrong?????? As her daughter won't eat her vegies at night she is not giving her anything at all between lunch and dinner so that she is hungry. (Which still isn't working.) We do not get on very well so am reluctant to say anything. Opinions, please!!
