    Default 9.5m milk / solid routin help

    I'm just not sure how many bottles my ds should be having now (I'm reading mixed advice). Also when to offer them in between meals and the times between milk/solid feeds.
    He has no night feed.
    Can you please share your bottle/solid routines.

    Thanks!!!

    Default 9.5m milk / solid routin help

    At 10 months my son dropped down to 2 bottles per day they were 300ml each so if your bub takes smaller bottles then would probably be on 3 per day the recommended amount is 600-800ml then 600ml after 12 months, his routine was like this:

    7am wake and bottle

    8am: breakfast usually weetbix and banana

    9:30am: morning tea 1 tub yoghurt
    Then a nap until 11am

    11:30am: Lunch 1 piece of bread with spread and a cheese stick

    1:00pm nap

    2pm arvo tea usually those baby mum mum crackers with avocado

    4pm: dinner a cut of meat and mashed veggies

    5pm: Bath, bottle 300ml then bed

    He is still in a similar routine now at 19 months although only has 1 day sleep and 2 400ml bottles he also eats about twice as much

    Default 9.5m milk / solid routin help

    At that age DD was having 200ml bottle when first waking up around 6-6:30 although not finishing all the time.
    Then would have breakfast at 7:30.
    About 100mls around 11:30.
    Lunch at around 12:30. Then would have another 200mls after her arvo nap around 3ish.
    Dinner at 6-6:30, then another bottle before bed time around 7:15.
    She has since dropped the late morning bottle at around 10months. Which I was guided by her, she wasn't asking for it so I stopped offering her that one.

    Hi, thanks for your replies. I think 600ml is an amount more for 5/6m olds. Once they get to around 10m then 250-550ml is ok. But that's according to my Baby Love book.

    DD wakes up at around 6.30 and has breakfast around 7, porridge or weetbix with fruit usually.
    She has a bottle around 8ish, 200ml
    Around 9.30ish when she wakes from her nap she has a snack, usually fruit and/or yoghurt
    Lunch around 11.30, one piece of bread sandwich with a slice of cheese and fruit.
    Bottle around 12.30 before her nap.
    She wakes around 2-3ish and has recently wanted another bottle here. She doesn't want food lol!
    5pm dinner, then bath.
    6pm bottle around 6.30 bed.
    She doesn't feed through the night.
    HTH!

    Default 9.5m milk / solid routin help

    We have been seeing a pediatric dietician due to bowel complications from a bout of gastro when my DS was 13 months old, she recommends 600ml of cows milk (over 12 months) as well as dairy intake from other sources if they drink under this amount. Under 12 months she recommends 800-1000ml plus solids. I wouldn't worry if bub is taking less they are all so different my son eats and drinks a huge amount compared to his little friends I feel like he is constantly eating or drinking, as long as they are growing and meeting mile stones I would go with what they want rather than what books or MCHN tell you normal is different for every child

    Here is a copy of the print out she gave me, it is for 12 months plus but gives you a rough idea of what to aim for in the next few months

    Thank you.
    My DS is not a big milk/bottle drinker. ATM he has 3 bottles ranging from 110ml during the day and 220ml at night, so around 440ml in total + milk on cereal and yoghurt. Recently he is starting to drink less at night (60ml) so I thought that maybe I need to drop down to 2 bottls.

    Some bubs just aren't as I said they are all so different and if he is growing and meeting milestones what you are doing is normal and enough for him
