My dd's 1st bday is fast approaching and I'm trying to figure out the what, how, and how much of meeting her evolving nutritional needs. I should mention she's in daycare and while her nursing has been declining gradually, their practice of overfeeding her has not. We also have been supplementing (about 4 oz per day) and due to stress and health issues, I'm leaning toward weaning from the pump around the 1 year mark.
While I'm eager to throw out the formula, I'm not sure what to transition her to and how much.
Currently we provide daycare with about 8 oz BM, 4 oz formula, and 2-4 oz of baby food (either homemade or from an organic pouch).
I was going to start mixing in some goats milk, but now I'm thinking I should start replacing some of her formula with water instead and see how that goes. I'm also wondering how much food to provide once she turns one - and whether that should include something for breakfast.
For any moms who have their babes watched by others at age 1, what do you usually send? Also, she hasn't yet taken to using a cup so I'm not sure whether to transition her to a sippy or what. TIA!
PS - If I give her "whole milk" I'm leaning toward goats milk or kefir over cows milk, but would be interested in hearing various experiences re the milk issue.
