Feeding

Anonymous

My LO has been eating baby food for the last month or so and is starting to eat more now (2-3oz per meal) I usually give it to her in between her bottle feedings. So she’ll has a bottle at 7, baby food at 9 and a bottle at 11. She’ll have baby food 2-3 times a day. And this has been working for us very well. However, I am wondering if I should start giving her the baby food directly after the bottle? Her bottle is about 7oz sometimes she’ll guzzle it down and sometime she doesn’t finish.

    I think the feeding schedule you have now is good. How old is she? Formula or breast milk is how the baby gets all of their nutrients through the first year. Baby food is secondary. I would give my son baby food at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to get him in the habit of mealtimes.

    She’s almost 8 months. She gets formula. Sometimes we skip the baby food if she sleeps longer than expected. I like to keep her bottles as close to the schedule (7am, 11am, 3pm and 7pm) we have since it works well for bedtime.
