    Over the last few weeks alice has started dropping bottles! she is no down to one a day (5oz full fat cows milk, if im lucky!). Ive even tried putting half a spoon full of chocolate flavouring in it which she took from a beaker instead of a bottle.

    Is it too soon for her to be dropping bottles? how many bottles do your babies have / had at her age (which ive just noticed! 1year, 1month, 1 week, 1 day! isn't that funny!!!)

    Gabs is really hit and miss with her milk but generally she will have about 5oz in the morning and 6oz (ish) in the evening.

    I think it is quite normal for them to start dropping them but just make sure hse has plenty of yoghurts, cheese etc if you are worried.
    It may just be a phase; as Gabs went off her milk completely when I transferred her onto cows milk. :hug:

    Jake always has 8-9oz when he first wakes up in the morning and then he sometimes has a bottle late afternoon but the amount varies and can be anything from 2-8ozs. If Alice won't take any more milk just make sure that she has yogurts and cheese etc to make up her calcium intake.
