  • My son eats 1 jar of baby food, mixed with oatmeal cereal, for break fast and lunch, and only takes a bottle when hes sleepy. the oatmeal cereal makes it thicker and heartier so he doesn't have to eat more baby food. He gets snacks and juice, but hes on a schedule.

  • My daughter is seven months old and we make her baby food. She eats an ice cube of fruit or veggie plus oatmeal for breakfast with a 5 ounce bottle, the same for lunch, and then usually has another bottle in the afternoon and an 8 ounce before bed.

  • Formula fed babies need to keep getting 32 ounces of formula until they are 12 months old. I never used baby food or formula. Baby food is watered down and expensive. It's better for babies to finger feed themselves healthy foods.
