What Should My Son Be Eating? He's Formula Fed. I'm Not Sure If I'm Feeding Him The Right Amount. So I Was Just Curious Of What You Ladies Were Feeding Your 8 Month Olds.

When my oldest was 8 months, she was eating baby food, food from the table and formula.She had 3 meals a day of food and then bottles in between.

By the book: only baby food or home made baby food. Depending on the amount of teeth your baby has he/she might be able to handle more than just pureed food. Formula/breast milk as well. Do not give your baby cows milk until way later. Cows milk is really hard for the underdeveloped digestive system of the baby to digest and can cause internal parasites that can lead to internal bleeding. Cows milk is the devil! lol!

This, except that I was nursing. My son at 9 months stopped liking baby food completely, and I had to change his meals to regular food, but small portions mashed up.

my 10 month old still gets about 75-90% of her nutrition from nursing:) *we only feed her solids once a day, maybe twice..

i fed my baby baby cereal, baby food, and she had some teeth so i gave her things she could pick up and eat without choking.

My daughter 10 months old and i feed her baby food and formula only! I feed her 3 baby food meals a day, and i feed her until she is full. Some times is a few bites and other times its 8 oz of baby food. We are down to 4, 8oz bottles a day. Hope that helps! Oh and i mix all of her vegtable baby food with baby rice cereal or baby oatmeal.  Good luck!
