Feeding schedule

Can you share with us how often you feed your little one and what's your schedule like. 

Mine goes like this:
9:00 am nursing 
10:00 am breakfast (oatmeal ) 
12:00 Nurse upon waking up from nap
2:30 nursing 
3:00 lunch (veggies etc)
5:00 nursing 
6:30 oatmeal 
7:00 nursing 

Ive been nursing every 2 1/2 hours..sometimes every 3 hours. Is this too far or too little apart considering that I am adding solids in between nursing sessions. 

Re: Feeding schedule

  • We feed about everything 3 hours with two solids a day. We typically give a solid followed by a bottle. 
  • Loading the player...
  • 7,10,1,4:15,7:30, 10:30. We play with solid at noon and 6.

  • He nurses about every 3 hours, but isn't interested in solids at all yet. We do the EASY routine, and he has a hard time staying awake for more than 1.5-2 hrs between naps.

  • 5:45am or so: 6 oz bottle
    6:30 breakfast (oatmeal or yogurt) and water
    8:30: 5.5 oz bottle
    11:30: 5.5 oz bottle
    12:00: lunch (fruit or veggie) and water
    3:00: 5.5 oz bottle
    5:30: dinner (meat and veggie) and water
    6-6:30pm: 6 oz bottle and down for the night. 

    DS had been taking 30 oz consistently for about a month, but since we've started doing solids and water 3x/day (pediatrician's suggestion) he has dropped a few ounces. This is still within the recommended ounces directed by the pediatrician, so we aren't concerned that he's cutting back. 

    Sometimes we go more like like four hours between bottles if he takes a long nap. It's not always consistent. 
  • LO has a 5 oz bottle every 3-4 hours, with the exception of when he wakes up for the day (he's not hungry for the first 5, sometimes more). We play with solids at lunchtime.
  • He nurses about every 3 hours, but isn't interested in solids at all yet. We do the EASY routine, and he has a hard time staying awake for more than 1.5-2 hrs between naps.

  • He's at daycare but it goes something like this:
    6:00 wake up get ready for Daycare
    6:30 bottle at daycare
    7:00 solids (oatmeal and fruit)
    Next bottle between 9:30 and 10:30 depending on sleep
    11:30 solids (veggies)
    12:30 bottle
    3:30 bottle
    6:30 bottle and bed.

    Sometimes he takes 5 bottles sometimes only 4 depends on sleep and when he eats solids
