A is 11 months and currently has 3x 7oz bottles a day. during the last week she's missed her middle one a couple of times (accidentally. Either she's slept through it or H forgot to give it to my mum when she had her for a few hours) and hasn't bothered about it. She's on 3 meals a day and loves her food. I'm halfway through a formula tub which will probably last til Friday and then I was going to switch to cows milk.
should I keep the 2nd bottle or drop it? WWYD? She normally has it around 2pm. But today she slept til 3.30pm, had a snack and has just had dinner so bedtime bottle will be 7.30ish.

N currently has 5 oz in the morning, plus milk in his cereal, 5 oz mid afternoon and 8oz before bed. He has missed his afternoon bottle several times this week so I've been thinking of dropping it as like A, he eats well. Not sure on exactly how much they need at this age but sounds like they are both on about the same.

Thanks Lolly. I may drop it then. X

J has boob so it's hard to say what he takes, but he has what seems like a good feed morning and night, and I offer at 3.30pm ish, and he normally has a teeny bit, but it's a shorter feed than the others. Sometimes he's not bothered at all, and just wants to look around and do stuff, so it sounds fairly similar.

If it was me I would probably make up the bottle for a week, but not offer it. It would be there in case she asked for it, but I reckon after a week you'd have a fair idea of whether she really wanted it or not x

P was on 2 bottles a day from about 9 months. By 11 months she was on 2 8oz bottles. Plus cows milk on her cereal.

I've been wondering the same thing lately, as M (11.5 months) has a morning and evening feed (BF) but doesn't seem bothered about having any in between. She does still feed in the night sometimes though. Sounds about right then after seeing this.

Twins who are ten months dropped their post lunchtime nap about three weeks ago. Now only on 2x 7oz bottles a day. Can't wait to switch to cows milk as fed up of making up bottles and sterilising!!
