  • You will have to figure out what works best for you, depending on sleep times and such, but here is what I do:
    7:30 2 tbl spn oatmeal w/ one container stage 2 applesauce, 4 oz bottle
    10:30 5 oz bottle
    1 one container stage 2 fruit
    3:00 5 oz bottle
    5:00 one container stage 2 veggie
    7:00 7 oz bottle
    She still wakes once a night and has a 6 oz bottle.

  • well my dd is 7 months, but she's been on this schedule for a while:
    8: wake up- eats a bottle
    8-11 is playtime
    11-3 is nap time
    3 eats another bottle
    3-5 is playtime
    5- i give her cereal and a bottle
    5-7 is playtime
    7 is bedtime
    Naturally i take playtimes to do errands, clean up, bathtime, ect.

  • oh forgot to mention, she sleeps through the night, so there are no night feedings

  • I don't remember times really....but in general they ate their meals when we had our meals. They had a snack between each meal and one before bed. Bedtime was about 8-9pm (depending on which kid) and they usually woke about 6-ish. Breakfast was usually around 7am. They took two after each snack.

    Meals were food and 8oz formula in a sippy.
    Snacks were juice/water mixed in a sippy and some food.
    Before bed was at least 8oz of formula in a sippy and some food if they were acting really hungry. Bedtime was at least an hour later. They slept through the night.
