7mo self weaning?
No replies to this topic

DD is 7.5 months for the past 6 weeks or so, she has been getting less and less interested in being BF. I started giving her the odd bottle and figured that it was inevitable that she would eventually prefer getting a bottle as it is easier and so on.
Lately she is refusing pretty much all formula (7am 150ml, 11am 120ml, 3pm maybe 60ml 6:30 refused completely - her dinner was at 5pm) but completely loving having solids. It doesn't really bother me as she seems happy enough and is sleeping as well as she ever did (not very well!) but I know that milk is suposed to be their main source of nutrition until they're one.
Is it possible she is self weaning? Should I leave her be, or should I be encouraging more milk drinking if so, how? I only offer solids after her bottles except at night time.
