I know that each babe is different, but just curious how much and how often your 6-9 month old eats besides formula or breast-feeding?

  • Mine eats a LOT. He's 7 months and will eat about the equivalent of a jar and a half three times a day. Good thing I make my own.

  • My daughter ate solids every day, and the amount would increase a little at a time at that age. My son was introduced to solids at 8 mos, but wasn't interested, and only ate a few bites every few days until he was 11 mos old.

  • ANY amount is fine, as is ANY frequency, as long as breast or bottle comes first, with no more than 30 minutes separation. Mine coiuld and did do full nursings followed by a cereal-bowl sized helping of pasta. But a half teaspoon would have been fine too.
