what is in a meal of solids

Hi.  When you say your DD/DS is eating 3 meals of solid food what are you counting? It my DS is eating 4oz of baby yogurt would that be 1 meal of solids?

  • I consider that a meal. My ds usually eats three meals a day and four bottles so he's basically eating every two hours or so.
    What a difference a year makes...

    I would count that as a meal.  DS loves yogurt and has one for breakfast or lunch almost every day.

    I would count that as a meal. Usually DD will have a yogurt plus maybe some toast or chopped up fruit too but not much on top of the 4 oz yogurt.

  • Yes, sometimes we'll just do a liquid. Like a puree or yogurt, but most the time I add some finger food too. Like cut up fruit, yogurt melts, baby cheetos, cut cheese, etc. Sometimes, I'll give her just finger food.

  • I'd count that.  We do 3.5 oz of baby puree (baby food or yogurt) then I give him some table foods like fruit (right now we are doing blueberries) or whatever I'm eating.  Sometimes I'll give him some puffs or yogurt bites so he can continue to work on picking up food.

    I use it to mean "food opportunity". As in, we're at the table, he's in the high chair and has a chance to eat. 4oz of anything would be an excellent "meal".
  • My LO doesn't eat more than a couple oz per meal. He stops at exactly 2 oz.  He'll turn away or start playing with the spoon I'm trying to feed him with.  

    Now when we're having dinner, he'll eat what we're eating.  I try to make it look about 2 oz.  I just eye ball it.   Like a tablespoon of rice and a tablespoon of veggies.  This morning he ate blueberry pancakes with me.  I just fed him from mine.  I would say he had about a third, maybe half, of a pancake.

  • S has turned into a Hoover lately. She ate 4 mini toaster waffles this morning along with a third of a banana. Yesterday we went out to eat with some friends and she ate cottage cheese, some steamed veggies, and a bunch of chicken out of my soup. She used to play with the spoon when she was full, but she hasn't been doing that as much lately. I'm afraid of overfeeding her!

  • Yep, I would count that as a meal. My baby is usually just having fun with food while "eating" and I do count them as meals but breast milk is still no 1. This is a good reference for introducing solids
