    Default What order did your baby drop feeds?

    So my DS2 is a bit over 10 months and he was having 3 feeds a day, on waking 6.390am ish, about 1pm and then before bed about 6.45pm

    DS1 was very predictable in dropping his feeds and dropped the lunch feed at just over 1, then dropped the morning feed a month or two later and kept the bedtime feed until I weaned him at 19 months.

    For the past 4 nights DS2 has refused his bedtime feed, just mucks around and goes to bite if I try encourage him to feed, he looks at his cot and then when I give in and put him in he goes straight to sleep and sleeps his normal 11-12 hours.

    He is still really keen for his other two feeds so it's not really a nursing strike as such. He also eats like a horse, but he eats lunch about an hour before his lunch feed yet still has a good feed.

    Anyone else's baby drop feeds in a strange order?

    I haven't really thought about the usual order to drop feeds in but my DD dropped lunchtime first (at 9-10 months) then bedtime(10 months) and the last one to go was first thing in the morning at 11 months. She was happy with things and so was I as I could have a glass of wine with dinner! It happened rather quickly and I wish I'd taken some photos or videos. I didn't realise they could just be done with breastfeeding at that age! I thought I would get some say in her weaning.

    My DS went in phases of being more into certain feeds than others but was always such a milk monster that I thought I was going to be breastfeeding for years! Then at 13 months he just quit cold turkey, wanted nothing to do with me. The week before he'd been waking constantly for a feed so I was in despair. So yes, he did just randomly become not interested! There's no method to their madness ☺️

    What's this dropping feeds? There are kids that do this?

    Neither of my kids volunteered to give up bf feeds. I had to intentionally skip the feed.

    This. Though ds kind of dropped his late afternoon feed but probably because we started having dinner earlier!

    This is me too, my 10 month old has 4 feeds a day, will sneak in a 5th if he can, plus the numerous overnight feeds. None of mine have ever refused a feed!

    DS was formula fed but from the point we were at 3 bottles we also struggled with a bedtime feed. Simply because he was eating such a big dinner he wasn't hungry. This was about 8 months. I moved his last bottle to 4pm and dinner at 6 which worked really well as his nappy stayed much dryer overnight too. He's 13 months now so just has cows milk. A 250ml milk drink when he wakes around 7am and about a 150ml at about 2pm. The rest of the day he's happy with water. His appetite is insane though, I have no idea how he puts away so much food.

    Thanks all. He's refusing to feed this morning to 😔 seems a bit off tho so maybe he's not feeling the best, although he keeps stealing everyone's food and is eating fine. I'll just keep offering and hopefully he comes back to it.

    Not used to this as although DS1 dropped feeds, I just didn't offer them and he didn't whinge. I think if I'd kept offering he'd still be feeding now!

    Sounds like he might be weaning himself if he's still eating.

    I don't think there's a natural order to dropping them, just what ever comes natural to them. Maybe he's just full enough in the evening from all his food and just isn't hungry for milk?

    It's called baby-led weaning...https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/bfinfo/weaning.html

    OP so it can and does happen, but clearly not with every baby.
