i don't count or clock watch. She bf whenever she wants. If I am eating she crawls over, sits or pulls up and "begs" and I giver her small chunks to eat of fruit and veggie from my meal. If she doesn't want it she doesn't take it. If I want her to have fun exploring, that is the only time I get the high chair, get her naked and let her chase and squeeze pear squash etc If i don't want a mess i offer her from my finger, or let her pluck a chunk from my hand, or guide the spoon. but she decides how much she wants. I don't measure. She is 8 1/2 months and we've done this for a month. no gross rice cereal or bland baby food.
