If I'd been able to breast feed though and had plenty of nutritious milk I'd probably prefer to give them that. But that was not meant to be. Pity you can't buy the stuff.
Haha I would sell my milk if I could.
Ra ra loves cows milk but I rarely give it to him. I made him a babychino yesterday as I made dh and I a coffee and we had spare hot milk. Ra ra was so excited!
Little Ted (23-03-2015)
Last night he finally took a small breastfeed before bed but that's because he refused dinner instead. I don't like this fussy baby now I want my old fantastic eater/booby man/sleeper back. (side note: of course I love my little man but you know what I mean)
I could have been a wet nurse in the beginning I had oversupply and so much milk. It's funny how much it seems to have dropped now.
C stopped her 540 mls of formula 10 days ago
We give her a total of around 230 mls of cows milk in cereal and cups instead now plus whatever is coming out of the two bf's, (150)
She's one on Saturday!!!
They recommend at some stage around 11 to slowly wean onto cows milk and stop formula. It's fine to have cows milk before 1 just as long as they are still getting formula or bm (700- 900mls) a day. I think it's just honey that shouldn't be given at all before 1.
I think formula should be used though if a bub isn't wanting lots of cheese, yoghurt, meats etc etc
