right now my 7 month old, who eats cereal, and baby food, eats every 3 hours. 8 am fruit and cereal, 11 am 6 oz bottle, 2 p.m. veggie and 6 oz. bottle, 5 p.m. 6 oz bottle, 8 veggie, fruit and cereal, 9 p.m. 6 oz bottle. I've been doing this schedule for the past 2 months and I like it because I work 10:15 am-7:00 p.m. and I can feed him both his big meals, but lately I feel like feeding him dinner and 8 p.m. is to late and he's having trouble making it through it. Now I want to put him on a schedule that will work better for him but I don't know how to change it and make everything work. I'd like to know what other moms feeding schedules are and what you guys think of how I can make it more convenient for my baby. Thanks your your input!Answer Question

I work too. I work from 8-4:30 so my schedule is a little different. 7:30 breakfast waffle, oatmeal, and 5oz bottle (not alot of food, she is not a morning eater) 10:30 or 11 snack with 6oz bottle 1:30 or 2 snack and 6oz bottle, 4:30 or 5 dinner of pasta or veggies with cheese and a 5oz bottle, then a 6 or 7 oz bottle at bedtime which is 7pm. I have her on this schedule so I can spend the max time with her. I think it's ok that a baby is on your schedule. As long as your baby seems happy I think just being on a routine is best for any baby.
