Breast fed 12-18 months- pre bed time feed only. have never given formula or cows milk. have always chosen natural alternatives. People shouldn't actually have that much dairy, including babies. other ways to give nutrients. It's just that it's the easiest and most common way. only my preference of course.
Routine looks something like this
7am wake up. floradix natural vitamin and iron
Morning routine- combination of outdoor play, indoor play\music
10.30 ish morning tea
Water available all day
1.30-4 pm nap

Thanks everyone for helpful info. Keep more coming!!
Look at some of your schedule, I may still give her 4 bottle feeding/day, 150ml each as before then. I heard they are going to drop one feed once they are 1, is it true?
@Pregnor - thanks for info. I will still stick with stage 2 formula feeding. Do you know until how long I can give to her?

You can give it as long as you like.
I'd say they would drop from 4 to 3 bottles when they drop the second nap, just be flexible and follow bubs lead, sometimes they might not eat much and prefer more milk feeds, sometimes they will be into solids and off their milk

My 1 year old is breastfed but my 2 and a half year old was once a bottlefed 1yo
DS does this - boobie, boobie, boobie, huge breakfast, boobie, sleep, lunch, boobie, sleep, boobie, boobie, boobie, dinner, boobie, bed.
DD at 1 would do this -
7am - breakfast
8am - bottle
9am - sleep
11am - lunch and milk in sippy cup
2pm - sleep
4pm - bottle
6pm - dinner
7pm - bed
1am - bottle
On the milk thing. DD had stage 2 formula until she was 18 months old because she would spew cows milk. It triggered her reflux. From 18 months we put her on raw cow's milk. She loves it. On cereal and in cooking we use rice or almond milk.

My dd is 18months and ds almost 4
I never had strict routines I went with the flow.
However on the milk issue.
Ds was bf 3 months, formula fed till 12mnths then cows milk which upset him so back to formula for 6 months then lactose free cows milk.
Dd was bf 16.5months then tried cows and made her really ill even lactose free. So she is now on goats milk only. Which is great and closest to bm. she loves her goats milk. So cute!!

My H is only 6mths so I haven't got a routine to share yet, sorry but thought I'd add my 2c worth about the cow's milk.
We have no milk allergies in the family so my non-bf children (A - F) began diluted cows milk bottles from about 6mths (ie. half boiled water, half cow's milk). I started with a little bit of each added to their formula bottle to begin with then when there was no reaction, gradually increased until they stopped formula. By 12 mths, they were drinking straight cow's milk.
In response to the iron thing, my H is already eating some meat mashed up with the rest of his vegies, which also include greens. He should be getting plenty of iron anyway, though he is still bf.
Honestly, I think it often comes down to perceptions about the dairy industry!

The Australian breastfeeding association reccomends cows milk after 1 if you want to wean. Not formula after 1 if you want to wean.
I assume that it's okay to give cows milk then
Cavier where does your doctor get his/her info for not giving milk after 1?
It seems a bit weird
