  • I did the bottle first when my son was that old. just because the food is just so he gets "use" to eating. Now he eats his bottle whenever he wants it LOL

  • When we started I always gave bottle first. Now she is still getting the same amount of formula just things are spread out where she gets formula and food. Here is her schedule if that helps

    8:00am 6oz bottle, oatmeal mixed with some of the formula. She drinks a little before eating oatmeal, during eating oatmeal and the rest after.

    11:00am stage 2 fruits

    1:00pm 6oz bottle

    4:00pm 6oz bottle

    5:00pm stage 2 vegie or vegie/meat combo and a few bites of table food

    7:30pm 7oz bottle

    I also give sips of water throughout the day. She is 7.5 months old and this is actually the schedule she set for herself. She is a happy healthy baby. Good luck.
