How often??

Ok I know i have three kids but you always forget what you did with the others. My son just turned 5 months and I started him on baby food. How often do I feed him his baby food? surely not every formula feeding!!!

  • I would do it with breakfast, lunch, and dinnertimes. That way when he starts eating more and starts eating other food, he will already be on your meal schedule. :)

  • Oh jeez, it's been a while but I think I used to give them a little at lunch time and then their nap time bottle. Then I think I gave them a little around dinner time. I also introduced veggies first and waited to start fruits for a while. That way they would eat the veggies! Good luck!

  • I didn't feed my babies solids until after 6 months. My youngest is almost 10 months old and he has a jar and/or cereal 3 times a day.
