  • my baby is 5 months old, and for the past month she's been eatingn at ABOUT the same time everyday. every 3-4 hours. She usually has one bottle (6 oz) at around 7 am, then 10:30 or so, around 2 pm, another one around 5-6 pm. then another one around 8 or 8:30 before bed.

  • Well, he was on a pretty consistent sleep/wake schedule by 3-4 months, so he ended up eating at predictable times then.

  • I can't honestly say there was a schedule until he started school! He had to have breakfast before leaving, lunch is at a scheduled time...dinner still varies based on whatever is going on here. Before school, mealtimes revolved around whatever was happening on a given day.

  • Not until she was over 2 years old did we start scheduling when she would eat, and even now, at 3, she still gets some random snack times.

  • Mine are 8 and 5 and eat every 2-3 hours. Kids don't eat like adults.

  • Around 3months. He slept all night and woke and ate and had his own schedule then. He was like clockwork.

  • I don't even eat on a schedule much less expect my baby to.
