I did this with A and it worked fine. Not really sure what you're asking though cos you said she takes a bottle fine. Are you just meaning how to go about switching? Id just cut one feed at a time so tomorrow don't offer a bf in the afternoon and give a bottle instead then a couple of days later do the same with another feed.

Sorry I wasn't very clear. I want to know how to increase the volume up. 10oz of formula a day can't be enough. Can it?
I feed on demand and don't really have a schedule as such. Think I will need to be tough with this.

If she's still having a bf morning and night and on solids I wouldn't be worried. When I went back to work when my eldest 2 were 8 months they were both down to just one bottle a day plus bf morning and night. I think they only took a 7oz bottle

We've only just started weaning. I'll carry on with what I'm doing and get her weighed more often.
Thanks Ally. Switching her older sister was so easy. She just drained the bottles.

If youre still feeding mornung and night she'll top up from you if need be. Its impossible to tell how a baby is having a day if they are having even one bf. Id just carry on following her lead.

Thanks. I really should trust my own instinct.
