  • I feel like he eats a lot. He usually wakes up around 5 or 6 and drinks 6oz. Around 9 he eats half a jar of stage 2 baby food mixed with cereal. At noon is another 6 to 8oz of formula. Around 2 or 3 he eats another half a jar of baby food mixed with cereal. If dinner is around 6, he then eats half a jar of baby food with cereal and half a jar of fruit. If dinner is late he will have a 5oz bottle to hold him over. (he eats at the table when we eat) Before bed he will drink another 5 to 8 oz and that is it until morning.
