my reply are in red. as for the pacifier issue, sry i cant help cos dear son is not taking any. =)Hi mummies not sure if its a correct entry to post it here. i was just wondering hw often do you change your baby botts, teats, pacificer?
My baby is around 10mths old.
1) hw often to change bott? i,m using avent bott ever since she is nb n have changed all e botts once ( used 6mths throw ). when i ask around hw often to change the botts i hve got answers like 3 mths , 6mths or as n when there r scrachters. personally i opt for the 6mths change. what say you?
6mths seems okay.. but for me, i will change the teats every 2-3 mths. for bottles, will change around 5-6mths..
In the light o this pardon me if i sound silly she is currently drinking 180ml fm during the single feed n lesser milk if she is having cereal or porriage is it sufficent for a 10 mths old baby ?
what's her feeding schedule lik? if right after cereal/porridge, of cos she can take in more milk. she is 10mth old alrdy, you should just replace the milk with solid. =)
e reason y i ask is bcse i,m gona get some more 260ml avent botts cse got promo so as to prepare for the next change ( stock it when its cheaper) but on e other hand i was thinking she will increase her mik intake sooner or later rite so should i stay put n buy the 330ml bott instead but much later ? the promo oni for 125ml n 260ml bott.
i bought 1 330ml bottle before, it is now still sitting in my drawer! dear son's milk intake increase till 240ml only.. but some babies drink up to 270ml also.. but since she is taking 180ml now, i think you can buy the 260ml ones. but of cos, dont stock up too many..
2) althought she is 10mths old she is still using the no 3 teats. no complaints from her so far n sh finshes her milk quite fast . i bought the 6mths teats shld i try it on her during 1 o e feed? shld i even move on to using 6mths teats?
IMO, if she is okay with the 6mth old teat and can 'catch' the flow, you should change it.
3) the sme goes for pacificer she is still using the 5mths pacificer under piegeon brand. bought e 8mths but she spit out. shld i stay w e 5mths pacificer since she is comfortable or i shld try n intro her to e 8mths??? i mean is there a big diff using a 5mths old n 8mths old pacificer since ultimately e use o pacificer is for comfort sucking n security????/she is 10mths old
