    Default Formula transition

    My youngest was bf until 12 months. She started daycare at about 7 months. She wouldn’t take a bottle even though I expressed. She was eating solids so wasn’t hungry. I used to just bf her before I left and as soon as I got there to pick her up. This was only 1 day a week at first and then 2 dads once I went to work.

    Thank you

    I have mixed formula into my breastmilk and he takes it. He was hungry and because I didn’t have fresh pumped bm for him to drink I gave him the formula and down the hatch it went.

    I think slowly slowly he will take it so let’s see how we go thanks again

    What was she eating at 7 months ?

    Mine only eats morning and night and it’s a struggle to finish a little jar of Heinz pumpkin, potato beef!
