While we impatiently wait for an appointment with the feeding clinic/dietitian/speech therapist, I'd love to hear some weaning stories/information.
DD is 10months and her milk intake has now dropped to about 400mls in 24 hours. I don't really see it improving.
So tell me when/how/ why you weaned. What should I aim for? What foods should she be having to balance out the lack of milk? Do I try cows milk etc. TIA xx

Tell me about weaning
At that age I would suggest you cook with formula if possible. Ie pancakes with formula as the milk component, rice pudding etc.
Kids that age need lots and lots of nutrients that plain solids cannot give. Hence food before 1 is fun.

How does she drink her milk? As in from a bottle or cup etc?

Bottle. She refuses a sippy cup (I've bought so many) and normal cups.

It took ages for my DD to drink from a cup. ..but she took the bbox straw cup after some practice. It has a weighted straw so it doesn't matter if it tips up.
I used to make the following with formula. ..
Pancakes (like pp said)
Pikelets..plus can add fruit
Smoothies (still working on this! )
I can't think of anymore but if i do I'll add!

Oh.. a way to teach straw drinking is to use pouches of food...as bub sucks you squeeze...so they learn that the sucking gives a reward.
Also using those fat straws you can get. .like from fast food restaurants.
They are much easier to learn from. Cut the straws smaller.
DD didn't take to sippy cups well at all but straws were okay.
Sometimes you need to pull the valve out of sippy cups..they can be quite hard to suck from. And bubs can give up.

We have tried the free pouring ones and straws. She won't suck on pouches either...
