  • Its 40 calories per inch of height per day. He should still be taking bm or formula still right?

  • At ten months, most of his nutrition should still be coming from breastmilk or formula. Stay away from the allergy trigger foods (wheat, soy, dairy, etc.), and stick with fruits, vegetables, beans, and other high nutrition foods.

  • yes he still takes formula but not that often only when he is going to bed. other than that he will have nothing to do with formula he wants juice... also is it ok to maybe give him some lemonade????

  • Make sure you nurse him first and then offer solids. DD was on table food, she had home made baby food for about a month.

  • um, hell no. he needs formula, not lemonade. you are the parent. stop giving him juice. it's not very nutritional and it's not supposed to ever replace formula.

  • No juice. No lemonade.! Stop the table foods and only offer formula. That's where the nutrition is.
