  • I'm assuming you mean formula. They should be drinking at least 24 oz/day. Cut back on the food until they are drinking enough formula.

  • I agree to cut back on the baby food until they are drinking enough milk. Until 1 year old they do not need anything except breastmilk and/or formula. All other foods are just for fun and learning.

  • Solids are dessert. If the kids haven't eaten their "chicken and peas" (their milk) they get no dessert. Skipping solids will not hurt them. Skippingmilk will.
