hiya, my baby is 8 n a half months old, he has a bottle, bfast, bottle, lunch, bottle dinner plus snacks and water inbetween then a bottle before bed all 6oz but im noticing he isnt always finishing his bottles so i want tob start weaning him off them and i was wondering would i be best to cut the lunchtime or dinner time?
I have saw him not wanting lunchtime but wanting dinner time or if he has lunchtime not wanting dinner just wonderig which is best to cut out n how long to leave it before cutting out the dinner time 1, cant remember how i done it with my lil girl

my daughter made her own decision to cut dinner time bottle, as she was only having about 2 oz, so i just stopped it.
lunchtime was a nightmare though. i started giving it to her a bit earlier and reducing the amount down, and then replaced it with a snack instead.
tbh your son probably doesnt need 3 meals, 5 bottles and snacks at 8 months old. my daughter only started having snacks when she started at the childminders and that was 8 months, but she was only on 2 bottles by then.

My little girl has bottle, breakfast, snack, lunch, bottle, tea, bottle for bed all 9oz and drains the lot.
By this age my little boy only had 2 bottles a day just gonna let her do what she wants, she is following her centile nicely so not worrying about it, she has about 30oz of milk a day and three good meals.
Only thing we need to work on is water from a sippy cup, she still doesn't get it lol xx

My little boy who is 6 months was on 4 bottles a day and 3 meals and he wasnt finishing any of them, I reduced the amount to 4x6oz and he was leaving so much, only taking 1-2 oz from a couple of them. I cut out his mid morning bottle but increased the others to 8oz so I was still making 24oz, and now he drains the lot. I think your lo is probably eating too often so is just topping up all the time and never hungry enough for a full bottle.
My lo is now on 7.30am- 8oz and weetabix for breakfast. 11.30-lunch and pudding with water. 2.30pm-8oz. 4.30/5pm-dinner and pudding and then 8oz around 7pm then to bed.

Thanks ladies, I decide to try him with 1 bottle in the morning and 1 at bedtime and he is now on his 4th day and is not bothering looking for any other bottles im just giving him water with meals and throughout the day to keep him hydrated.
he likes to be eating when we are eating, he dose not like to be left out and I think if I would let him eat all day then he would

On such topics you should certainly consult your kid's child specialist...he/she will guide u in the best way possible...they tell you the exact reason why the child is not taking milk certain time of d day or whatever...as far as choosing the right bottle is concerned and how to sterilize it is concerned is also an important info...and ofcourse the best suggestions you'll get from the portals which have expertise in this...i knw one gud baby products portal namely babeezworld just have a look at their collection you ll surely find the apt product fr u
