  • My daughter drinks 1-2 ounces of breastmilk in the morning (within a half an hour of waking up)

    Within 1-2 hours she eats a can of baby food (fruits) or as much as she will eat (sometimes just a half a jar) as well as some cereal. (Sometimes the a few tablespoons or even just one).

    She will have 1-3 ounces more of milk within the coarse of 3 hours.

    Around 4:00 pm she is eating more babyfood-- very rarely is it the whole jar.

    7:00 pm she eats dinner (an entire thing of baby food or as much as she wants to eat-- which is usually alot of it.

    8:00pm she is in bed.

    She wakes up around midnight for milk and sometimes again around 5:00 am- How much she eats varies.

    Hope that helped. My daughter is 7 months- 1 week. I don't know if I even feed her enough or too much? I don't know but she's healthy!! :)

  • My daughter will be 8 months old in a week, and our schedule is something like this:
    Wakeup 730 - breastfeed
    830 breakfast - 3TBSP oatmeal & stage 2 jar fruit
    12 breastfeed
    1 lunch - stage 2 jar fruit & stage 2 jar veggie
    430 breastfeed
    530 dinner - 3 TBSP oatmeal & stage 2 jar fruit
    830 breastfeed
    Just a little side note - Our Dr. recommend not introducing dairy products until at least 1 year of age (cows milk, cheese, yogurt etc). I think this is a pretty standard recommendation. Good luck!
