Eating habits

Lately when I would give my 8 month old just formula at feedings, he seemed to get hungry faster. He would tend to wake up in the middle of the night and want a bottle. What can I give him to satisfy his hunger longer?

Random question also- What do abbreviations like DD and such stand for?

  • He's 8 months? So's mine, and he's already eating 3rd stage food! I suggest starting him on solids, if his doctor is ok with it. Your DS (Dear Son) is growing! Formula tastes gross anyway lol. Start him on rice or oatmeal baby cereal mixed with the formula, and use your finger or a soft spoon to feed him. You don't need any sugar or salt or anything, just cereal and formula.

  • My son had started solids around then, so what I would do is give him a little bit of infant cereal and a bottle right before his bed time.
