E is now 10 months old, she has been on 3 x 7oz bottles since about 6.5 months old (first thing in the morning, mid afternoon and last thing at night), but recently she has started refusing her afternoon bottle. She eats well and has a good variety in her diet (we have done a mix of finger foods and spoon feeding).
When did your little ones drop to 2 feeds a day - not sure whether 10 months is too early or not!!

The recommendation is 18 to 20oz up to a year so two bottles is fine if she has lots of dairy in her diet as well.

Thanks Margot - that's really useful to know!

My HV said the 18-20oz can include yoghurt, cheese etc. so I'm sure she's fine :)

If she's refusing that same bottle day after day, it does sound like she's ready to drop it. I'd follow her lead.

What WG said....as soon as O started refusing a bottle or taking a v v minimal amount from it, we cut it out all together. As you say she eats a goid varied diet you'll be fine
