  • My daughter is 10 mos. old and her schedule usually goes like this:
    8am nurse
    10am infant cereal (1/4 cup, maybe) w/ fruit mixed in & juice
    11- 1p naptime
    1:30 nurse
    3p vegetable & juice
    4- 6p naptime
    6:30 nurse
    8p a small amount of baby food (mixed dinner or something)
    9:30 or 10 nurse and then bedtime
    She seems very content with this schedule so far and doesn't seem hungry. Soon we will be introducing table food.

  • I quit nursing so we're doing bottles now. My son is 8 months...

    1 6 oz bottle at 6 am
    9 am- egg yolk(no whites), toast bits, and cereal(oatmeal)
    11 am- 6 oz bottle(nap)
    12 pm-jarred food or ham&cheese bits, banana with strawberry
    2pm-4 oz bottle
    5pm-veggies, jarred food, or fruit
    6 pm-4 oz bottle
    9-10pm- 6 oz bottle
    3-4am-wants a 4 oz bottle

    My son is wierd. He doesn't like big bottles. He'll pull away after 4-6 oz. He prefers smaller, more frequent feedings. He's a snacker so that means he wants nighttime bottles too.
