  • I am acting under the assumption that your child is old enough for "real" food.
    We nursed first hing in the morning. Breakfast was cereal and fruit and we'd change up what they got every day.
    Lunch was a vegetable. Again we changed it up daily. Once they got a little older it was meat and vegetable.
    Dinner was less cereal then breakfast, a veggie and a meat and then after a little bit another fruit for dessert.
    Of course we nursed and had finger food throughout the day as well...

    Morning-Waffles, cereal, puff cereal
    Nap-8oz bottle
    Lunch-Bread, cheese,fruit cup or yogurt
    Snack-Whole grain animal crackers nd cooked carrot peices
    Early evening (around 4)-8oz bottle

    Bed-8oz bottle

    Hope that helped.

  • My son is 13 months and this is his schedule

    breakfast- he gets cereal bar with cereal and sippy cup of milk
    lunch- he likes the little pasta bowls or cheesedog (cut up small) with baked cheetos or some kind of veggie or fruit
    Dinner- I cut up pieces of a wrap (pepperoni, ham, tomato sauce, cheese all warmed up about 30 sec He likes those sundried tomato basil wraps or peanut butter sandwich in small pieces

    For snacks he gets cut up cheese, crackers, some sort of fruit or veggie with sippy cup if milk or juice. He has eaten pizza cut up and he loves those cheese dogs but make sure you cut them up small because its a huge choking hazard. He always gets a sippy cup with water, juice, or milk about every two hours so he stays hydrated and I dont give him his cup until he eats at least half his food. he has been drinking all in his cup then not eating.

  • I've delayed solids but that's a personal decision. I'd say nurse (bottle?) on demand always even if it might interfere with a "meal." Cereal for breakfast. Fruit or fruit/cereal for lunch. A "dessert" for a snack. Veg or meat/veg for dinner. I wouldn't even consider introducing solids til 6m. (But then I have a 20m who still nurses almost exclusively and a 4m who has no idea anything but booby exists. lol) Good luck!
