  • at 8 months old, i fed my son a bowl of rice cereal with a stage 2 fruit for breakfast, a stage 2 veggie for lunch, and a bowl of rice cereal and a stage 2 fruit for dinner. water with his meals, and at least 30 something ounces of formula.

  • well i bf, but i nurse her on both sides when she wakes up, then i feed her usually a 4oz yogurt for breakfast and i feed her lunch (sometimes 1/4 grilled cheese or some applesauce or 1/2 a bananna..... it depends), i nurse her both sides before her nap, then a snack when she wakes up, dinner (usually some kind of veggie and meat or noodles), and nurse her before bedtime. she does drink about 6oz of juice during the day too. so i guess that's probably 4 times milk and 3 meals plus 1 snack and 6oz. juice. she is 8mo

  • My 8 month old gets oatmeal with fruit for breakfast or plain stage 3 fruit or yogurt....stage 3 veggies for lunch and either stage 3 veggies or a chicken/turkey meal for dinner. Most times he gets a 6 oz bottle in between. On average 4-6 bottles in a 24 hour span. No water or juice yet. He gets veggie puffs for snack sometimes.

  • morning is oatmeal, lunch and dinner are stage three meals, three bottles throughout the day, plus juice and snacks, though medically my daughter has an overactive metabolism

  • At 8 months my son was eating oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, small bites of whatever I was having for lunch, small bites of whatever we were having for supper, each "meal" followed by breastfeeding, along with a breastmilk "snack" at midafternoon and one before bed.

  • My 8 month old's schedule is pretty much like this everyday:
    6am- formula bottle
    8am- oatmeal with formula or breastmilk I had saved up in the freezer
    10am- formula bottle
    12- fruit (2nd stage baby food)
    2pm-formula bottle
    4pm-veggie/meat (2nd stage baby food)
    6:30- formula bottle
