After reading Gill Rapleys book, I have been following baby-led-weaning with my LO since 6 months- now 8 months old. She is formula fed. I was wondering if any other mums are following this weaning process and how you are finding your babys ratio of food and also milk intake from about 71/2- 8 months onwards. She is not taking in huge amounts of food yet, but I can see from her nappies that she is getting some in.
Guess I am just having a wobbly and worrying a bit that she may not make the transition from food to milk on her own by the the time she is a year. (I know up to a year is just considered experimental for them though.)
Also, did anyone at any point start to offer smaller amounts of milk if bubs is hungry just to curb the hunger, and then offer food afterwards? She still has her bottle first (for hunger), then about 30 min later I will offer her food to try. She is having 5-6 bottles in a 24 hr period approx 30-32floz
Any advice and guidance would be really appreciated- first time mum!
