what is the normal feeding schedule for a 10 month old baby inclusive of formula and solids??? Pls help, tnx

At the moment, I feed my LO 600 ml of formula a day (200ml per bottle 3 times) as well as cereal with veg in the mornings and cereal with fruits made with 180 ml of formula in the evening. He started refusing the veg in jars abt a week ago and hates anything with lumps so no finger foods. He takes yoghurt sometimes and pureed fruits but refuses mashed bananas or mashed veg. He also loves custard which i give sometimes made with his formula.I would love to know what other babies his age r eating. He weighs 9kg at the moment and is 28 inchs tall.

  • Talk to your pedi., every baby is different.

  • I can only tell you what mine were eating at 10 months:

    Breakfast: pancakes, waffles, french toast, cereal, toast w/ butter and jam, fruit in some combination, 8oz milk in a sippy cup.
    Morning snack: cereal, bagel, granola bar, etc....8oz juice/water mixed in sippy
    Lunch: sandwich of some sort, crackers, left overs from the night before, etc....8oz milk in sippy
    Afternoon snack: same as morning
    Supper: some of whatever we were eating and 8oz milk in sippy
    before bed snack: same as earlier snacks except milk instead of juice/water.

  • My daughter is 10 months, and this is what a normal day looks like for her. She eats table food, though, so that is a big difference. Also, remember that each baby is different:

    Breakfast: a banana and cereal (mixed with 2oz of formula), a 8oz bottle before her morning nap
    Snack: Puffs
    Lunch: 1/2 jar of Gerber Graduate carrot slices or fruit dices, a hotdog (cut into itsy bitsy pieces)
    Snack: Yogurt melts or Puffs and a 8 oz bottle before afternoon nap
    Dinner: Whatever we are having, cut into tiny pieces - so, last night it was bits of chicken, bits of noodles, some Gerber fruit dices, some juice (Beechnut Yogurt DHA mix)
    Snack: Puffs
    At 9pm, she has a 8oz bottle before bedtime.

    Hope this helps!

  • I usually give our son his bottle before he eats solids so he doesn't fill up on solids and then not get enough formula for the day. We do tablefood, not babyfood. You can take the baby's weight and multiply it by 2.5 to determine how many ozs of BM/formula a baby should get in each 24 hr period. Just remember that a baby's tummy is about the size of their little fists.
    AM: 8oz formula followed about .5-1 hr later with breakfast (potatoes, rice crispy cereal w/fruit). AM snack of either fruit or crackers.
    PM: 8oz formula followed about .5-1 hr with lunch. About a 1/2 PB sandwich w/veggies or fruit. PM Snack of freeze-dried fruit w/ 8oz of formula when he is ready for his nap.
    Dinner: He eats whatever we are eating for dinner, which is usually a protein and veggies. We don't always eat a starch. He takes is "dinner" bottle about an 1/2 after dinner.
    Bedtime: 8ozs formula. I strive for 35/40 ozs of formula per day.
