Just curious.....

Hi mommies.....

I was just curious what does your feeding schedules look like?

DS is almost 6 months (will be on Dec. 1st) and he eats 4x a day (7a, 11a, 3p, 7p).  He has 2 jars of food a day (1/2 a jar at each feeding) right before his bottle and also consumes about 8oz every bottle total of 32oz a day.  DS does show us when he no longer wants anymore formual (generally an oz every so often but not every day).  In the last bottle of the day DS gets a scoop of oatmeal cereal in there (thsi has been ongoing since 3 months).  He's a big guy aprox 23lbs built solid like his daddy so eating has never been an issue.  I was justing wondering what everyone elses schedules were looking like these days

Re: Just curious.....

  • Just shy of 6 months old. We make him 8oz bottles (he drinks 6-8 in a sitting).

    He usually eats around 7am, noon, 4pm and 8pm.

    Gets about 1-2 tablespoons of veggies and 1-2 tablespoon of fruit in the morning (9am or so) and around dinner (5pm or so).

     He is 28 inches (approx) and 18.4lbs.

  • Ours are taking 30oz of formula per day and they get solids 2x a day. Their AM solid is a fruit mixed with oatmeal (about 2.5oz per baby) and their PM solid is a veggie of some kind (2.5oz per baby).  I think they're just about ready to go to solids 3x a day, but I plan to talk it over with the pedi at their 6 month appt. next week.

  • Seeing as I only breastfeed I am assuming she is getting about 6oz per feeding so

    7am - BF

    9am - BF and 3 Tbls Cereal - (flavour of the week is oatmeal) 

    11am- BF

    3pm- BF - half jar of veggies or fruit depending on what I have made.

    6pm BF

    930pm BF

    and lately I don't know what everyone else is going through but Loghan has been up a lot during the night.  Found she cut her first tooth today.  So hoping that was the reason behind these night time wake ups :)  

    My biggest thing is I am so excited to have her eating solids I want her to try everything and there is so much to choose from :)

  • 6 am - BF

    9 am - 4 oz BM

    10 am - 4oz BM

    12pm - 3oz BM

    2pm - 3oz BM

    4pm - 3oz BM

    6pm - BF

    7pm - solids - veggie (we're doing BLW so I have no idea how much he's actually eating)

    8pm - BF

    1am - BF if LO wakes up

      We only started solids a few weeks ago and daycare doesn't do BLW, only purees until 8months so LO only gets solids with us. LO also won't take more than 4 oz at a time via bottle so he ends up eating every 2 hours during the day.

  • We have no schedule he bf when he's hungry some days it's every two hours some days he goes four but then eats every hour for a few hours.
    He only gets a little soilds at dinner only started two weeks ago.
    He does sleep better at night if I make sure to bf him ever two hours during the day.

  • Lincoln (21 lbs) has no set feeding schedule.  He breastfeeds on demand, which is what he has done since birth.  He just turned 6 months yesterday, so we are starting to give him a couple spoonfuls of pureed veggie/fruit 1-2 times a day. He LOVES it!  We also got him this amazing chair that hooks directly to our table.  He is so darn proud to be sitting with the family like a big boy.  Most adorable thing ever!

    Sounds just like my big guy! Eats at 7, 11, 3, 7 (6oz bottles)..he eats about an ounce of solid food at breakfast then 2 oz solid food at dinner...he is close to 24lbs and is 6months today! :) I seriously cant believe how fast it is going!
