  • My DD was 8 months on April 23 so she's about 8 1/2. She weighs about 22 pounds.....Breastmilk whenever she;s hungry....solids maybe once or twice. Im not too worried about that rightnow. She doesn't care for the jarred stuff....I make my own organic. just steam veggies and baked pears, lentil loaf, veggie sausage, things she can pick up herself.....She babbles a lot and we are teaching her sign language when she eats. She tried to pull up on things and kind of scooches....she gets across the floor somehow and it's not by crawling, but she rolls. doesn't care about crawling (it's not a milestone, so Im not worried about that)....loooves to play the piano and loves Queen.

  • My daughter is a few days away from 8 months. I think she weighs about 17 lbs. She's rolling everywhere and can almost crawl, but she finds it easier to just roll to what she wants =) She'll pull up on things only if she has a good grasp-like she'll pull up on my fingers.

    Eating schedule (sometimes she nurses more if she seems hungry, but most days she sticks to the schedule:

    Wake up(7:30ish): Nurse, 1 jar fruits with cereal mixed in.

    Lunch (11:00): Nurse, 1 jar veggies, .5-1 jar fruits (sometimes mixed with cereal)

    2ish: Nurse, sometimes some finger snacks (gerber puffs or graham crackers, etc)

    5ish: Nurse

    Dinner 6:00: 1-2 jars veggies

    7:30-8: Nurse.


    Repeat! =)
