I am wondering when people started cutting back on formula or breast milk when introducing solids.
My boy (I have twins) was having 5.5 oz every 2.5 hours to 3 hours (plus 2 to 3 bottles at night), my girl was having 6.5 oz every 3 hours and no bottles at night
This is what our current schedule is like.
6:00 a.m. - regular bottle (5.5 and 6.5)
8:00 a.m. They have been eating approx 1.5 tbs of oatmeal every morning mixed with formula for the last couple of months. I have recently added fruit in the morning, but they are only eating about one tsp each.
10:30 - regular bottle
1:30 - regular bottle
4:30 - regular bottle
5:30 - dinner, they are having about 6 tsps of veggies.
7:30 - regular bottle
Do you think it's time to start cutting back on their formula now or are they eating so little solids, it doesn't matter? I don't want to overfeed them but I don't want them to be hungry either. Or worse, not be getting enough during the day and start waking up at night for feedings again! Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I'm curious to know when other people started cutting back on formula.
