I have also struggled slightly with the routine of meals but have come at it from a different angle as I actually started weaning with lunch, then added dinner then breakfast. As the previous poster suggested, rather than 'dropping' milk feeds, so far I have just jiggled them to different times so that they are more spread out and therefore fewer. I used to do milk feeds at 7am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 6:30pm and 11pm. Now our average day looks like this: 7am - milk 8am - breakfast 10:45 - milk 12:00 - lunch 2:30 - milk 5:30 - tea 6:45 - milk Middle of the night - sometimes milk if she wakes. She tends to nap at 9am and 12:30pm. LO is 7.5 months by the way.
