    Ours are 10.5 months. I'm getting anxious on how we are going drop bottles when they turn one as ours still have 5 bottles / 6-8oz a day. We and the daycare do give them solid , til they are full/reject them, 2-3 times a day depends on how long they sleep during the day . It doesn't seem like we will be able to drop day time bottles when they turn one , does it?

    Thanks in advance for the feedbacks!

    At that age, we did 4 8 oz bottles and 3 solids. At each solid feeding, we offered some finger food puffs, cherios dipped in milk, some peas carrots, scrambled egg, pancake, ...something soft and diced. Gave them like 15 - 20 mins then fed them their baby food. They ate like 1.5 containers each. Mine didn't eat finger and real food well until they turned 1.

    YOu should not drop all the bottles at once, every one does it differently but i would drop them one at a time. At 10.5 months my girls were getting 3 bottles a day. At 10 months i dropped from 4 to 3 at 11 months i droped from 3 to 2 and at one i droped too one bottle a day, which they still get and its right b4 bed! Next week I am dropping it!

    If you are like me it was hard to start dropping bottles, I thought they "needed it" but after a day or two of changing their schedile a bit by dropping a bottle and adding a snack, they didnt even notice! I def. would, start dropping them so your babies can be off bottles by 15 months! (so they say that is the magic numer) some say 12 months!

    Also, I would start making sure they get 3 "meals" a day. since that is waht youa re eventually going for. at 10.5 months my kiddos were..

    7wake and 8 oz bottle
    830--solids --pancakes or some tpye of real food plus a baby jar of fruit
    930 -11 nap
    11-(i had just dropped this bottle when they woke up so i gave them a snack here)
    1230 - lunch 1 baby veggie plus real people food
    230--8 oz bottle nap
    530- one veggie or fruit bbaby food and then real people food
    8-bed and 8oz bottle

    good luck!:)

    When our boys were in the 9-12 month range, our pedi told us they should have 16-24 oz. a day. I would say drop a bottle (one of the midday ones) and see what happens. My guess is they will eat more solids, and you could even add a snack if needed. At that age, our boys were getting 3 bottles a day and a snack. Roughly like this:
    6am - bottle
    8am - breakfast
    10:00am - snack (replaced a bottle here)
    12:30pm - lunch
    2:30 pm - bottle
    5pm - dinner
    7pm - bottle then bed

    Each solids meal was about 4-5 oz. total, and snack was something like yogurt or fruit.

    I agree with the pp that you don't want to drop bottles all at once. Around 11 months, I started putting formula in a sippy cup. It took them a couple of days to get used to the idea, but soon I was able to take the 2:30pm bottle and make it a sippy with each meal. Then I replaced the morning bottle, and finally the evening bottle. My boys didn't seem to mind, but I did it very slowly.
