  • I was feeding my daughter a 6 oz bottle every 4 hours ending with her bedtime. i gave her a jar of fruit in the morning mixed with cereal, a jar of meat and veggie for lunch and for dinner she ate a jar of meat, veggie, and fruit. it all depends on your baby. good luck

  • My daughter will be 8 months Sunday. She has 4 6oz bottles. Cereal with fruit mixed in for breakfast. Mid-day she'll have cheerios, bread or gerber puffs. Dinner she'll have veggies we're having or baby food veggy, some fruit, pieces of lean meat, sometimes bread or pasta.
