weaning and the schedule

Inlägg av chilber » ons 23 jan 2019, 16:48

Hi

I successfully used the cure with my daughter when she was one year old. She is now 4 and still a great sleeper.

I want to use it again for my 6 month old son but this time I am confused about weaning. When we cured my daughter she was no longer having milk feeds during the day. However, my son is younger so is still having milk. Should his milk feeds be in addition to his 4 solid meals a day and if so how do I maintain the appropriate time gap? Or should they be directly after a feed or instead of a feed. Should they even be scheduled in or just given on demand. I am not quite sure how interaction between milk and solids should work. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks :)

Hello and welcome back! :D

So he is now 6 months and as you say should have 4 solid meals. If you breastfeed we usually suggest you do it straight after the food as a top off. If you give the bottle you can if you wish to do the same. The whole solids with after chasing the bottle all within 30-40 min.

Don't forget to re-read the book 2-3 times before doing the cure and if you wish we can support you with a good schedule and more, just let us know.

Hi again

thank you for your advice. Actually I do need some help with the schedule.

With my older daughter we had meal times at 8.00am, 11.30am, 2.45pm and 6.00pm and this worked well.

However, now my daughter is at school I cannot use the same schedule because the school run interferes with the timings.

We now have breakfast at 7.30, lunch at 11.30 and dinner at 5.15ish. I don't know how to fit in a mid afternoon meal because the school run means I am out driving and walking between 2.45 and 3.15/4.00pm depending on the day. Sometimes I can manage to give my son a snack in the buggy during that time but that depends on the day and the weather etc.

Any suggestions you have on how to get round this problem would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

Please give me the full schedule for your sun where the times for school is included.

But as you have been doing you might need to give it in the car or the buggy. It is just a snack, not a full meal!

ok, so something a bit like this!

awake - 7.00am
breakfast 7.30 - 8.00am
school run 8.20 - 9.10am - based on the schedule for a 9month old he needs a 15 min nap. He may nap in the car or when we get home but the car journey is only 110 mins long max (depending on traffic) so he doesn't get a full 15 min snooze in one go
lunch 11.30am - 12.00pm
nap 12.10 - 2.10pm
school run 2.45 - 3.45pm
tea 5.15 - 5.45pm
bedtime milk 6.30pm
bed 7.00pm

Please let me know what you think. Many Thanks
