My son is 7 months old and I am weaning him from the breast. He would not take a bottle for the last 3 months, but I went to a movie 2 weeks ago and my husband got him to take it. So I decided that I would use this as an opening for weaning him before he decided he wasnt going to take it again. Plus he is so distracted while hes nursing its getting to be a pain in the butt. So I have been giving him a bottle once a day after his supper since Saterday. ( He eats 1/3 a jar of veggies and 3 tbls of rice cereal, I'm going to start him on meat soon and cut down the amount of cereal.) I'm going to ween him very slowly, dropping a feeding once a week and maybe longer for his last feeding of the day. ( I still love that one) He is only drinking 4oz of formula and because I always breast fed him I'm not sure if he is drinking enough. Or if this is normal. Please let me know if 4oz with the food hes eating is enough for him to drink at 7 months. Thank you for any comments and help.
