Re: Is my almost 12 month old weaning? What can I supplement with?

My dd is the same age adjusted for prematurity as your daughter and nurses 4-5 times a day and eats 3 meals. She does still nurse 2-3 times at night though, but she is only 15 lbs. According to my ped. it's ok at this age for them to be nursing less and eating more solids, as they normally recommend starting cow's milk at a year. I am going to continue nursing and offer organic cow's milk, and goats milk in a month or so. She is still getting used to the sippy and when I offer extra BM in a bottle during meals and throughout the day she is not interested, so I assume she is getting enough. It's totally up to you how you transition your babe at a year. I'm sure other mama's and your ped. can give you some ideas. Oh, and I also take domperidone
