we started almost 3 weeks ago - around 5.5 months old.
there's been no change in nursing or amount of expressed bm in bottles. maybe the bottles got spaced out a bit more at daycare, but not by a lot.
i started with once a day cereal, and then added once a day fruit or veggie the second week, and now she eats a third time because when we put her in her highchair to join us all at dinner, she goes crazy until i feed her too! last night, i mashed some avocado for her because we were having it too.
i use my soup spoon to measure one spoonful of cereal and add about 1 oz bm.
she's getting 1/3 - 1/2 of the smaller beginning jars from earth best. so, even 2x a day, it might be one jar or less total.
