I make LOs food.
I give him 4-5 cubes 2x a day. From what I've been reading and researching one frozen cube of puree is 1 ounce of food. Every few days, he will eat a 6 oz container of yogurt.
He goes to see the pedi on Friday. I bet we will have to up his solid intake. I tried to give him 3 solid feedings a day a month ago and I felt like he wasn't getting enough milk and his tummy was hurting him.
To keep track of how much my LO eats (and what I eat), I write it down in a little notebook that stays on the counter. Also, I use that if I introduce a new food. It saves my a$$ if he has an allergic reaction to something (not that I think he will) but the notebook is easy to grab in case I do have to take him to the ER or pedi. I won't have to try and remember what I gave him to cause the reaction.
V 's schedule is:
7:30 morning bottle---7 ounces
9:00---He'll take 2TBs of oatmeal plus 1 stage 2 container of fruit.
12:00--bottle 6.5 ounces
2:00 One stage 2 container meat/veggie combo and I stage 2 container of fruit.
5:00----bottle 6.5 ounces
7:00--- 2TBs oatmeal plus 1 container stage 2 veggies
8:15--- bottle--- anywhere between 5-7 ounces
This was his schedule as of his 6 month pedi appt. We started solids at 4 months with just 1TBS of oatmeal with half a stage 1 fruit twice a day (breakfast and dinner). Then by 5 months worked up to 2 TBS oatmeal with a full container of a fruit or a veggie twice a day. Switched to the Stage 2's and three solid meals a day after 6 month appt.
jessicariley810:I do more of a combination between BLW and purees. My baby loves to play with food while she's eating. If you respect some elementary rules of BLW you should not be afraid of choking: just cut the food the appropriate size and be there and watch your baby. You should also try some different veggies and fruits and see what your baby likes.nbsp;I'm not good at knowing what to give to my
baby but i always find different fruits and vegetables,here: http://goodmomming.com/ nbsp;there're specific for age. I use it and I had
