  • My daughter gets a bottle before naps. so 3times a day, and if she seems hungry between meals I will give her 3-4 ounces. You know when your baby is hungry and when hes not

  • An 8 month baby should be drinking on average 24-37 oz of their diet. And remeber for the first year the primary food should be breastmilk or formula.. so give the bottle first then the foods until he is full.

  • I just sub out one bottle for each real meal. I go
    8am: 6oz Mornning bottle.
    10am 1/2cup oatmeal and bannana's 6oz bottle
    2pm carrets and rice (tub of 2nd foods plus mixed with about 2tbs of rice)
    4pm 6oz bottle
    6pm Greenbeans and small fingerfoods 4oz juice (family dinner time)
    8pm 6oz bottle
    10pm If still awake apples and rice
    11pm 6oz bottle (deam feed, he's sleeping I chang then feed him)
    4am he will wake up wanting a bottle luckly now he can fee it to himself.
    This is the eating routin of my 7m old if it helps any. He is a nomal healthy growing boy in the 80% for everything so I must be doing something right hahahha good luck.
