    Just keep on with what you are doing. What time do you have dinner? We tend to eat about 5/5:30pm.
    Keep offering the milk at bedtime. If he is sleeping through and not unhappy, he is getting enough.

    We more often than not will eat after the kids have gone to bed.
    The kids usually have what we are having, or a version of it.
    If we eat together it usually about 5:30 - 6ish.

    ETA - I am assuming you say your DD and DS eat around 5??
    Then you eat later?
    If that's right, then just continue on. If DS doesn't have much milk before bed is not the end of the world.

    Good luck. Sounds like you are doing a great job.

    Hi yes DD and DS both eat at 5 and like you, it's either what we are having, a version of it, or what we had the previous night. DS manages to pick at most things and i just let him go untill he stops cryng for more. They both go to bed for the night at 7. DH is home in time most nights to put them to bed then he cooks our dinner, usually eat 7.30/8...(Jamie oliver's 15minute meals is great and i highly reccomend the cook book!!)

    DS had 2 half bottles yesterday, so he basically didnt drink a whole bottle. wondering why i can or shouldnt offer 3 bottles instead of 4? He just turned 7mths, hes still just a little bub! hehe

    I would still keep offering the 4 bottles, even if he only drinks half. My son will sometimes only ever drink 50 mls but then the next day scull the whole thing so I always offer it in case it's a 'good' day.

    You're doing an excellent job and I'm a bit jealous your hubby cooks dinner :/)
