Eulla with a slight fever
We will be starting Eulla on a new schedule. So far, Eulla has been quite good when it comes to change so hopefully this will work out. Now that Eulla is 12 months old, her pediatrician recommended that we start to lessen her milk intake from 24oz per day to 16oz. No more than that or lesser would be better. I will try to stick to the schedule I've prepared so that it will be an easier transition for the both of us. Eulla is supposed to be having 5 meals per day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between. Her snacks can consist of cheese, yogurt, cereal or fruits. I have to go grocery shopping with Eumir again to get ready for this. Before, I would give her milk just as long as she asks for it or when I think she wants it but now, instead of giving the milk to her, I will try to give her juice or water with a snack till she's used to it. Her pediatrician also recommended that we give her milk in a sippy cup and just water in her bottle so that it will make her want her bottle less.
I am currently waiting for Eulla's pediatrician call me back for an advise on whether I should also change her Enfamil Prosobee LIPIL to fresh whole milk. I'm scared to change her milk at once because she needed a special kind of milk. I breastfed her from her birth till her fourth month. Her change from being breastfed to formula made her really constipated. I've heard many horror stories about the change from formula to whole milk so I will just wait.
