Little one will be 10 months old in a couple of weeks and has increasing disinterest in her bottles. We are down to only 20oz of breastmilk a day (5 - 4oz bottles) and even then she doesn't always finish them. This is what her schedule looks like:
wake up (6:30-7:00): 4oz bottle
8:00- 3-4 TBSP fruit
9:30: 4oz bottle
11:30: 2-3 TBSP oatmeal, 2-3 TBSP veggies
1:30: 4oz bottle
3:30: 4oz bottle
5:00: protein , 2-3 TBSP veggies and/or fruit
6:45: 4oz bottle
Pediatrician said she should be getting 3 meals a day of solid foods and even snacks! I don't give her any solid snacks and I'm concerned I'm giving her too much solids? I keep reading that BM should be primary source of nutrition for first year, but she definitely seems more interested in the solids than she is in the bottles. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!
