When you do breakfast, lunch, and dinner...does that include a bottle AND baby food (or cereal)? Or do you do the food as a snack a few hours later before they have there next bottle? And how often are they eating? And is there "dinner" the last meal before bed? Or do you give a bottle before putting down? Thanks sorry im confused (obviously lol)

  • We don't do breakfast, lunch and dinner. He nurses whenever he wants during the day and gets bites of anything I have that is appropriate for him, typically only at dinner. He nurses 1-2 times again before bed and then again to go to bed. He's 8 months.

    You want to give a bottle first and food after, though... formula should be his main source of nutrition still, solids just an extra.

  • Koda refuses to eat with a spoon .. he insists on his bottle so i try everyday to feed him baby food but he just spits it out or looks away .. so his primary food right now is the bottle but we are workin on it ;) as soon as i get him used to the spoon im going to try giving him rice cereal after he wakes with a little fruit in it .. and vegitables for dinner but he will still mainly eat from his bottle!!
