  • my son is just now 6 1/2 months and he is eating 4 6oz bottles a day. Usually a jar of vegies and/or fruit and he also has his baby cereal at night. He is just now starting to eat cereal in the mornings. Occassionally he gets what we are having too.

  • My baby had his first taste of food at 6 1/2 months and only got any MAYBE once a week for a few months. He then started asking for bites of our dinner. He sometimes got snacks of puffs or cheerios. He didn't start eating full meals until after his birthday.

  • When my youngest was 5 months old she was eating 5 10oz bottles a day and cereal in the morning and night and had fruits/veggies at lunch time. She is still a very good lil eater!!!

  • Just breastmilk...She had no interest in solids until after 7 or 8 months, and I don't start solids until 6

  • My kid eats and always ate like a horse. We have 4 7 oz bottles a day, plus 1 1/2 jars of food twice a day - breakfast and dinner- and two snacks.

  • My daughter who is 5 and a half months eats alot. She wakes up at 6, is breastfed. At 7.30 she eats cereal with fruits, is breastfed again at 9, naps until 11.30, eats lunch cereal with fruit around 12, is breastfed again at 1 pm, naps until 4, is breastfed, mashed veggies for dinner at 5.30, bath, then bed with breast around.7.30. She gets up to eat at least once every night around 2-3 am. I guess it all depends on the baby. As long as your baby is healthy and happy and growing, then just keep doing what you are doing.
