Just exploring what type of milk to give her.
Cow's milk not an option. Both my other children and myself have dairy allergies.
I saw a chart online, and I will try to go back and find it, that showed hemp milk to be the best dairy free milk for littles, for what it's worth. My DD is almost 13 months and still nurses like a fiend but when I drop her with my MIL I leave her with a sippy of water and a sippy of hemp milk. She drinks neither, lol!
Hi we found multiple home made formulas on the net . We liked one approved by a natural health doctor. We ended up just doing a simple one for an older baby of 16:19 oz of goat milk and filtered water and then add backstap mollassas (1 Tbsp) for iron and sweet taste. Goat milk i naturally homoganized so it's less processed. My child loved it when I couldn't produce enough. I exclusively pumped for 14 months and he did well on the combo. It looks like a light coffee but my son enjoyed it , maybe your child will too.
why do you have to even give her any milk replacement. she will be fine with water and other solid foods. i am sure she will nurse like a champ.
I agree. If you think she is fine to go 4 hours without breastfeeding (which I would think she can now or soon), then just offer water and solid foods. If she absolutely needs a bottle for comfort, maybe you could start diluting the milk in the bottle gradually until it's just water. Nothing wrong with a 10 month old drinking water for a few hours and breastfeeding the rest of the day.
