At 10/11 months you can probably start reducing the number of daytime bottles and just focus on morning and bedtime feeds.

As she will be almost 1yo I would just see what she does when she is away from you. I'd get them to offer her an open cup and just see how she does.

I know when my sister went back to work when my nephew was 1yo he wasn't taking much fluid from anywhere other than BFing. It was like he realised he got thirsty and mummy wasn't there so he had to take his drinks from elsewhere.

Hi ladies!
I am new to the forum and was hoping for some advice before I dive into babywise sleep business. 
My question is about setting up the schedule with my early work hours. 
I am nursing my now 5 week old and am heading back to work at 12 weeks.
I have a 2.5 yo as well and have to be at work at 6:30 am which means drop off at daycare when they open at 6.  (I work 4,10 hour shifts)
I don't know how to create a schedule if we will be getting up at the crack of dawn every day.  I would like to nurse before work, so should I plan to 'dreamfeed' the baby around 4:30 am then put him in his car seat and call the official start to his day 6 am when he gets to school? Was just hoping to get some insight from you pros :) Thank you!

Just bumping in case anyone has similar experience.

I'd maybe be tempted not to get you all up that early and fed him when you arrive,  even if you have to do it in the car before they open.

Does he take a bottle?
