How many feeds at 10 months?

default How many feeds at 10 months?

Post by happy_chick on Sun Nov 02, 2008 9:59 pm

Ellie is not far off 10 months, she currently feeds around 4 times a day (morning, mid morning, mid afternooon & bedtime). She would happily feed all day if I offered boob and doesnt really 'ask' for it unless its bedtime so I was just wondering what her milk intake should be at moment and at what stage should i stop offering one of the feeds? I know milk is still very important at this stage but i'm not really sure how many feeds she should still be having?

She uses me to go to sleep and naps after the mid morning & mid afternoon feeds so its difficult to know what to do as I think she only tends to feed for the comfort rather than the milk. Any ideas?

Thank u :boob:

I think 4 times a day is very good :pml: lil miss can feed around 10 times a day... big gulping feeds too... she has wake up boob, breakfast boob, mid morning boob, morning nap time boob, random boob, lunch time boob, nap time boob, random boob, random boob, night time boob...mind she does ask for it by signing or just yanking my top down and fishing the boob out :pml:

She uses me to go off to sleep too...is there any other way to get them asleep? Laughing

Emily feeds almost as much as she ever did, she would rather have bibby than solids any day. Shes on a bit of a food strike at the moment so is :boob: pretty much all day & night. My friends baby though only has bibby about 3 times a day & eats loads of solids. I guess they all do different.

PS i just love you avatar pic happy chick its soooo gorgeous
