Hi all! I'm wondering if you all can provide me with your daily feeding schedule (solids and bottles/nursing), for your 9-10 month olds?
I have a relatively conservative doctor in that she wants us to wait until 10 months to begin feeding table foods.. so, right now, we give our DS 28-31 ounces of formula a day (5 bottles). For baby food, he has some oatmeal and half a jar of fruit for breakfast, oatmeal and half a jar of veggie or veggie/meat mixture for lunch, and half a jar-1 full jar of a veggie/meat mixture for dinner.
I read in What to expect, that babies at nine months dont need any more than 24 ounces of formula max a day, when eating solids (though it seemed to assume that by 9 months theyd be having table food). Should I give him less formula so that he'll have more solids?
Also- for those serving table food - what do your babies eat in a day (in terms of types of foods and amount)? I want to start introducing some, even if our ped said to not until 10 months.. so far he's tried unsalted saltine crackers, which he did pretty well with, and cheerios, which he couldnt get to his mouth all too well! I bought sweet potatoes, which I figure I can heat in the microwave unti9l mushy (he loves sweet potatoes as baby food)..
