  • Is he sleeping?

    I'm just a firm believer in the old adage "Never wake a sleeping baby'. LOL

    A lot of women believe, however, this will throw off the baby's next feeding time (though I never had any problems). If he seems content, I'd just let him sleep (or whatever it is he's doing). When he gets hungry, he'll let you know.

  • 1 and a half months or a year and 1/2 months... if a month and a half NEVER give fruit. only breastmilk or formula... you should only start fruit when the baby sits up with support. And as for offering him more.. you can, but if he's not hungry don't force him

  • I never believed in scheduled feedings unless you are dealing with a sickly or preemie. Babies ( people in general) will tell you if they are hungry. Some kids will eat if you put the food up to their mouths even if they aren't hungry. You be the judge.
