for those eb******...

Does your dc (past 1 year) just get breastmilk, or do you give him/her some other kind of milk as well? Like, if you only nurse a couple of times a day, do they get formula/cow's/goat's/soy, or whatever too? I'm thinking about what I want to do once dd turns 1 year. I don't want to wean completely, but I may be ready to cut back a bit. TIA.

Re: for those eb******...

my baby will be year in a few weeks and I've given her a small sippy with organic cow's milk. Seeing how a half gallon costs more than a gallon of gas, I have to figure something else out. I don't want to put her on cow's milk without the BFing as my oldset had lactose intolerance for a long time after switching her to cow's milk from formula.

I think in small doses, baby will be fine. I'm trying to follow my baby's lead with her weaning (not me forcing it on her like I did with DD2 ) but still want her to get calcium and all that.
good luck!!!

Re: for those eb******...

Because of some allergy issues I had with DS1, our allergist recommended waiting until 15 months before we started cow's milk. I'll do the same for DS2. Until your baby is getting a good amount of calories and nutrition from solids, no sense cutting back since the BM provides such a perfect source of nutrition.

Re: for those eb******...

We do bm, H2O and every once in a while a little juice. I don't think there is anything in cows milk that she isn't getting from eating healthy and getting bm. We try to get her to drink rice milk every few weeks, but she thinks it's yucky. lol. I am not worried about it, and her ped recommended a vitamin supplement or fortified oj instead, but wasn't pushy about it.

Re: for those eb******...

dd is 19 months and she has a sippy of organic whole milk that she works on during the day. she drinks somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 oz/day. she drinks a little water & the rest of her liquids are from bf. it's nice to have something to give her with dinner or for dh if i'm not around or just if i don't especially feel like nursing right that second. i don't think it has any impact on her nursing - for us anyway.

Re: for those eb******...

No allergy issues here so I introduce cow's milk gradually. They don't have any interest in it though. Mine drink water, juice, a little tea from mom's cut ect. And still nurses a few times.

We give water for liquids other then breast milk! I think down the road when our son weans, if he wants milk, we will offer him rice milk...

My DS is 2 1/2 and he gets milk like once a month. He really doesn't like it, so I don't push it.

Re: for those eb******...

My 16monthold gets cow's milk about 4oz at the most is what she will drink. However, she still nurses several times a day too. I think the ped said as long as they get 12-16ozs of calcium a day they are covered. For us, that would be at least two feedings so she really doesn't need the cow's milk but I offer it too.

Re: for those eb******...

well my DS is 16 months, he gets Cow milk, water, juice, tea, and just about anything that my DD is drinking. HE has been drinking all of the above from a sippy since about 8 months when he started to steal his sisters cup. No problems with allergies here. The boy nurses like a dozen times through the day and night. I always pour 2 sippy cups now and give them both drinks with every meal and snack. He won't eat hardly anything if I don't give him a drink.
