  • i guess just whenever she is interested in eating.
    the one thing i would suggest is having your husband give milk before offering any solids.

  • I wouldn't try too hard to make it a scheduled thing, just feed her when she's hungry! My guy eats two to three times a day while I'm at work, and it can range from four ounces at a time to ten! It all depends on him!

  • I agree with the pp. My pediatrician said that when the baby cries, try a diaper change first. If that doesn't work then try food. My little girl was eating 3-4 meals a day at 6 months with a 4 oz. bottle between meals. That worked out to every 2-3 hours. But every baby is different!
