Remind me what happens with milk/snacks after 12mo
« on: September 25, 2016, 19:35:13 pm »
DD will turn 1 next week  :o

At the moment I still BF her when she wakes and at the end of the day (but not to sleep :-) ) and she has formula in a cup mid-morning as well as mid-afternoon. She also has a good appetite for 3 full meals.

I know milk intake changes after 12mo but can't remember what I did with DS..
I thought I would stop BF at 1 but DD still wants it when she wakes for the day and I like doing it in the evening, especially now I'm back to work and it's a cuddle and reconnection when I get in so continuing with that but not sure what to do about daytime milk..do I just drop it and replace with a food snack & water?

Yes :)
I would just keep the same times but switch from milk to a snack with water or if you want you can still give a drink of milk in a sippy with the snack.
Most people keep the WU and BT milk a while. We dropped the BT one at 12 months but it was mainly that I needed to switch our routine so that teeth were brushed after milk.
But keeping a mid morning or even lunch time milk in a cup is fine too if she likes it. Schools offer milk mid morning or at lunch time so if she's in the habit of having a milk at one of those times it could continue for years yk?

Thank you, that makes sense. It felt odd to do milk one day and then suddenly stop the next
