  • I think it all depends on the child....When my daughter was 5 months she ate 6 ounces every 2 1/2 hours...and at night i would give her a jar of baby 1st baby foods...she would eat like half of it

  • my 5 month old would only have breastmilk, infact he didn't even get a taste of solids until he was about 7 months, and he wasn't ready then either.
