Switching from breast to bottle
So my little guy is coming up for four months now, so I'm starting to think about the next stages of his development. He's been completely breastfed right through, aside from a couple of days of formula top-ups in his very early days for weight loss issues. I have never intended to breastfeed for longer than about six months for various reasons, although the health visitors keep trying to change my mind, but that's another story. At six months he'll be moved onto solids, but when and how would you do the switch to formula? I'd planned to do it gradually over the course of a few weeks so he'd be having both for a time. Should I start changing over fairly soon or wait until he's started on solids? Would changing at the same time as having solid food just freak out his system too much? He was perfectly happy having the formula top-ups when he had them, so hopefully he won't object to formula now, and he's had several bottles of expressed milk so I know he can take a bottle. I'd just like the transition to go as smoothly as possible.
