So Disco is 10.5 months and I have noticed recently that I am getting less milk when i express I assume this is because he is taking less milk per feed as he gets more and more from solid food
so just wondering really how many feeds a day or how much milk for those FF or EBF did/ dose your 10/11 month old have?
Example of discos day is
Feed on waking 6:30-7am
milk feed mid afternoon
feed before bed
dream feed around 10pm
(he sometimes sneaks in an extra feed mid morning but he only has this if he asks for it I have stopped offering it routinely.
some of my NCT group were saying they had weaned there little ones off mid morning and mid afternoon feeds as 4 feeds a dayis a lot now but I think disco is cutting volume of feeds himself so don't want to stop him having them if he asks

isaac (bear in mind hes a HUMOUNGOUS milk monster and even at 16 months has 2 tt cups of milk before bed, sometimes one during the night and 1 or 2 with breakfast )
anyway at 10.5 months isaac had about 3 or 4 feeds aday
so wake up
breakfast (cereal with cows milk)
mid morning snack (yoghurt/cheese and apple/cream cracker with philly)
mid afternoon feed before nap, hed have a snack around this time too
occasionally milk during the night too
lucas at 10 months had his monning and night breast feeds......and fed all...night...long

A was down to 2 feeds per 24 hours around 10 months, but only just.
I'd try dropping the dream feed as he isn't necessarily asking for that one.
I wouldn't worry about and extra feed in the day at that she though.

C is 12 months and has been having 3 feeds a day for the past 3 months (since I went back to work), she has 6 or 7 ounces morning and night but anything between2 and 6 ounces in the afternoon. Only recently she's been drinking the full 6 ounces thats offered, for quite a while between 10 and 11 months she'd only have 2 ounces.
she dropped her dream feed at about 9 months I think,but she was never that fussed about it anyway.

Thanks ladies, maybe we aren't as far off others as I thought then.
we tried dropping the dream feed a few weeks ago and it was a bit of a disaster, after a week I decided he just wasn't readdy to drop it. Will try again in a ouple of weeks though.
I guess it is really a case of each baby is different when I think disco was cluster feeding in the evenings to 6 months and beyound then I feel much better about the 4 feeds a day he now has

He's sounds about the same as E tbh. She always has her feed on waking and feed before bed and generally two more at some point in the day. I've noticed a big drop in the last few weeks and my mum (who has her when I work) has noticed it too.

At 10 months Isla was still having 4 6oz feeds a day she was a milk monster till 14 months though, when I cut her down to two bottles and snacks instead!!

E (10.5 months) is FF but has:
6oz on waking
1 weetabix and some fruit
mid-morning snack of fruit/babybel/rice cake
We make up 7oz bottles but other than bedtime, she doesn't finish them any more. I would think the mid-afternoon or morning bottle will be next to go but not in a rush x

At that age O was on 3 feeds... on waking, mid afternoon and bedtime. We took.the morning 1 out and replaced with snack once he was not taking as much of it....he stopped asking for afternoon one about 12 months. I would say don't offer routinely amd wait til asked....but as they say milk is their main source until 1yr so if he wants it and takes it, give it x

At that age my two formula fed babies were on two bottles (literally having just cut out their post lunchtime nap one). I'd concentrate on dropping the dream feed one first and then the day time ones.

My two were down to a big feed at waking and at bedtime, I went back to work with my first when he was 10 months old and MW had recommended it would be easiest that way, so I didn't have to express. with my youngest she just went down to two feeds on her own.
