My April baby turned 8 months old almost 2 weeks ago and we JUST got her using bottles (after 4 months of trying!!). She's drinking breastmilk and formula mixed together, but I'll be switching to formula only once my breasts get used to not being used as much.
My oldest was weaned at 6 months and it seems like this was all easier for me with her. I can't remember where she was at this point in regards to how many feedings she had in a day and how many ounces she had per feeding. My daughter is just getting used to the bottle, so she's not drinking more than 3-4 ounces per feeding.
I'm interested to see what other mom's of April babies are doing so I can adjust my daughter's feedings if needed. I'm not sure why I'm struggling so much with this as I've been through all of this before. I appreciate any help you all might be able to offer!
