    Hi,

    If it is any help, I weened at 5 months using Milupa Atamil with no problems. Milupa is a lot thiner than other formula's and is supposed to be closer to BM. I am lucky tho my bubs will take any food / drink offered.

    Thanks, Shoni! I've never heard of Milupa Atamil. Where can you buy it?

    You can buy it from Welcome. My daughter drinks a mixture of EBM and Aptamil now, before she drank BM or Aptamil, and I never had any problems with her refusing either. Good luck!

    Just checked up on this in Gina Ford's book on weaning. A 9- 12 month old needs 600ml of milk/ day inclusive of the food used in cereals. Majority of babies will have 2- 3 milk feeds a day at 1 year of age and need a minimum of 350ml of milk each day, inclusive of milk used in cereal.

    Thanks for the advice! I tried Aptamil with our son and he seems to like it - at least enough to drink the 1-oz that we spoon-fed him, mashed in banana. After the failure with Nan-Ha and Meiji, I thought I would play it safe and instead of offering it in a bottle, we gave the milk mashed with fruit so that it was like a new food, instead of breastmilk replacement. Not sure if it's the method or the milk, but either way, it seems to work.

    I plan to increase the milk amount, but will continue to offer it with fruit (banana, papaya) so that it will be like a meal instead of a bottle to him.

    It's a great relief as I still plan to breastfeed him whenever I'm home (mornings and evenings) but this way, I may not need to pump as often at work.

    Thanks ever so much everyone!

    Just an update. We seem to have hit a snag with Aptamil. Our baby may be allergic to it. A short while after ingesting a small amt (1 oz or so), he starts to scratch at his face as if it's itchy.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Should I stop giving him Aptamil? Or is this something temporary that he might adjust to?
