wow.. thanks everyone for your input..
my son does not seem to drink as much formula.
he breastfeeds first thing when he gets up (5 minutes .. only one side .. dont know why but he only feeds off one breast, refuses the other)
then about an hour later he will have about 3 -4 tbspns of cereal with half jar of fruit
i then give bottle of formula @11am, and he will only eat between 3 and 5 oz
then @12:00 or so, he gets some veggies of some sort with a yogurt (lil ones) or whatever else may be on hand
3pm - formula bottle.. again only between 3-5oz
5:00 - cereal (3-4 tbspn) with either veggies or fruit
6:30 breastfeed again

he seems fine & he's growing well..
i guess i just get worried because he seems to drink so much less formula then everyone else?????

am i worrying for nothing?

(i do add formula or breastmilk to his cereal when i mix it, instead of water)

my son is 8 1/2 month old.
for breakfast he eats yohgurt and fruit or rice cereal and fruit and sometimes also a piece of toast
mid morning he sometimes has a snack: biscuit or a piece of cheese or fruit
for lunch he has vegies and meat or chicken (home made). Sometimes rice or pasta.
mid afternoon he has a snack (sometimes)
for dinner he has rice cereal and fruit or meat and vegies
quantity vary a lot. sometimes he only has a little bit. But I always offer him the 3 main meals and i try to do it around the same time every day
Breastfeed on demand, usually every 3-4 hours.

my daughter eats either toast/a waffle/a pancake or a bowl of regular cereal (like cheerios or rice krispies) in the morning & some yogurt then in the afternoon i give her a serving of steamed veggies and fresh fruit or applesauce & then for dinner i give her the gerber toddler trays. she will usually drink about 4 6 oz. bottles throughout the day too and also some water out of her sippy cup. she snacks on yogurt melts, puffs, and the little gerber crunchy sticks. she refuses to eat any baby food so she is on all solids!

hi, with toddlers now eating solids, you may start getting upset tummies and constipation. I have been introducing small amount of different foods to test for allergies and to make sure there aren't too many belly aches. I give half weet bix, Farex cereal or porridge for breakfast with cows milk or formula. Lunch i have now been giving a piece of bread with vegemite cut into soldiers, quarter appled peeled and chunks of banana. These he is able to eat on his own but he does have 6 front teeth. Dinner he will have a variety of baby food you can get from a jar. I always try to give him a small amount of fruit each day so he does not get constipated.Hope this helps.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

[deleted account]

My baby - almost 10 months - I will breastfeed her when she wakes up (between 6:30 - 7am), followed by cereal and fruit or yoghurt.
She is breastfed again around 11:30-12, followed by a veggie with pasta and fruit, or cheese sandwich and fruit, she will have dinner btwn 4:30-5:30pm, which is usually veggies, starch(bread, pasta or cereal) and fruit. She will then be breastfed again before she goes to sleep - usually around 6:30pm.

She will eat almost anything - avocado, broccoli, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, pasta, bread, cereal and yoghurt being her favorites.

my baby loves to eat, he will eat cereal dry or with milk, some meats that he can chew up and he eats any kind of veggie or fruit....i give him what i give his two year old brother just about.....unless i know he cant eat it yet...i let him be the boss on what he wants to eat...just not a whole lot of sweets....i feel hes too young for too much sweet things but he does pig out when he want to eat and he is still on formula and hes on the sippy cup so he is doing great as far as eating and thats all that matters to me and his dad, he gets full and tired and plays and cries just like any other baby and hes happy, thats the most important things are our childrens happiness...but we do not use food as a comfort thing....either way im proud of my kids...well babies

my daughter is 8 months and she has breakfast (cereal with fruit) and bits of what we have (pancakes, biscuit, etc.)
lunch a veggie and fruit and for supper she has a veggie with some sort of protein, like chicken or ham, etc. and then some fruit (if she wants it)
she normally has a monring bottle a little after breakfast, and a bottle after lunch, a afternoon bottle and a bottle before bed.
everyday isnt the same, i just try to think that she is a littel person like me and some days i may not be very hungry, i just try to keep her on some routine, but i am not supper trict about it. now that she is getting older, the schedule is not such a big deal as it was when she was a little baby.

My little man is a champion eatier...
On waking he has a full bottle 240ml milk, then 4 hrs later, one weet-bix with banana or other fruit + 120ml milk. Lunch is home made veges sometimes with chicken, fish or beef but mainly just veges + 120ml bottle. Dinner is a yogurt or piece of toast with avocado or veges and 120ml bottle. Serves of veges, fruit and yogurt are 60 to 70 ml so yes, he eats very well.

I currently do 4bottles/day = every 4hours with food an hour after; though the health nurse suggested I could drop a bottle. I'm working on bringing by babies solid food qty up to the recommended 4-6tablespoons per feed; and also working on making the food more chunky, like minced, and soon I hope to give regular finger food (tho so scary, lol).

I'm so glad you asked this Q cos I've been thinking lots about my daughter's routine and how to do it, esp with possible nap-time changes (going from 3 to 2)... Think I'll continue in a similar pattern.

My daughter is 9 months and her schedule consists of waking up at 7am has a 4oz bottle sometimes with go back to bed anywhere between 30min-2hours, will get up and have another 4oz bottle.(she gets 2 bottles in the morning every morning). After around 9:30-10am she has a different flavor of cereal with some fruit and toast (my daughter has no teeth yet and I had no idea until recently that she could have way more then what she was eating) After cereal she will nap for about an hour. Then it's lunch time which consists of meats and veggies. Her favorite is Chicken and Sweet Potato, With some whole wheat bread and some fruit for desert, then she's down for her afternoon nap. Which is anywhere between 1-4 hours. Then it's dinner time. Which would consist of another meat and veggie maybe share some of mommy and daddy's dinner. some fruit. Then it's Bath and playtime. anywhere after 6:30pm, Unless her afternoon nap ran longer. there is only bottles for the rest of the night. So she gets 1-2 more 4oz bottles and is usually in bed by 8:30 and will sleep through the night. (has been sleeping though the night since she was 2 weeks) :D

My daughter is 8.5 months and eats three 4 oz. baby food jars a day which just started two weeks ago before that she wanted nothing to do with food, and 6 to 8 8 oz. formula bottles. She snacks all day on what I'm eating also.

As long as hes getting the right foods he wont get too heavy. Just make sure hes not eating a lot of sweets and he will be fine. Both my daughter and my son eat a lot but its mostly fruits and veggies. my daughter eats some candy shes almost 5 so she works it off fast. My son i definately limit his intake on junk food

Alexander eats more then most of your guys' babies! Hes a true piggy! This is his schedule!

when he wakes up 7--9ish eats 7 ounces formula
11-12 eats a jar of meat, veggie, and a fruit 3-4 jars in this feeding 4 if hes still hungry I give him another veggie stage 2
2-3pm 7 ounces formula'
5-7 dinner is another meat, veggie, and fruit
8-10 he gets a big bowl of cereal mixed with formula and fruit I give him cereal at night because he sleeps all night long if he just got formula he would wake up


he snacks on puffs he doesnt care for any of mommy and daddy foods yet but he was a 6 week early preemie baby so he might still not have much interest yet. His dr said feed him as much as he wants, his weight gain is good.

But now I feel like im really feeding him to much because most of you said there babies are only getting a jar or half a jar of baby food.
So now I feel like im wrong .....

my son eats almost everything we eat. He usually eats about a 5oz bottle in the morning and then follows up with fruits and veggies. Around dinner we give him what we have. He loves lasagna already. as far as juice i give him the gerber apple or white grape juice diluted with water. when its his bedtime he may take 4 oz of formula. he still wakes up throughout the night though any suggestions on how to keep him asleep?

We keep a schedule because we wanted to do anything to get him to sleep all night and our pediatrician said to have a SET routine, so this is what we do and it works... He gets up any where between 7a-8a and he watches his 25 minute learning DVD (Your baby can Read) then he eats Oatmeal w/Bananas and a 5oz bottle...Then around 9a-10a he takes a nap, which usually lasts a hour to a hour and a half..Then when he gets up he eats a 4-5ounce bottle and around 1p he eats a jar of veggies and a half a jar of fruit and then a 6ounce bottle..Then at 3p he is down for his second nap which is almost always 1.5 hours..Then around 5p he eats a jar of veggies and a jar of fruit and a 6ounces bottle..Then at 7:30p is bath time and getting ready for bed..Then after he has his jammies on, he eats a very healthy helping of cereal with a fruit mixed in and a 6-8ounce bottle and then he sleeps all night..Sometimes during the day he has more bottles because he is more hungry some days than others...I hope that helps your comparison... :)

my son just turned 9 months old yesterday. stopped breastfeeding him when he was about 7 months old and switched to formula. in the morning when my son wakes up he usually starts off with whole grain cereal mixed with a stage 3 fruit, then i make him a 4oz bottle (normally @8:30/9am), after that around lunch he is eating 2 stage 2 vegetables (@12). if he gets hungry (which he normally does) before dinner i feed him yogurt and another 4oz bottle. when its time for dinner he is eating whatever my husband i eat that nite, i just blend it up for him (sometimes i will freeze some for the following day too). for dinner time i usually fill up a 3.5oz tupperware container and he eats it all. then around 8-9 at nite he eats another 6oz bottle. throughout the day he is also snacking on the gerber puffs/yogurt drops and drinks one juice and about 2 sippie cups of water. hope this helps.....my pediatrician recently told me that he needs to be eating more solids and 3 meals a days, its better than the bottle/breast all the time. but all pediatricians are different, if you are concerned i would definitely bring it up in your next checkup.

My son Asher eats either rice or whole wheat cereal and fruit for breakfast (9amish) and 6-8oz of milk. I give him 4 - 6oz water or watered down juice and Gerber yogurt/ wheat melt snacks(12ish). around 2 he eats lunch any green veggie and either a orange veggie or fruit (2 jars) and 6-8pz of milk. Then a snack similar to earlier and Dinner around 7ish , a green veggie and fruit or orange veggie and milk. I have started giving him cereal at dinner recently. He doesnt seem to mind :)

Well my twins are a little different from each other...my girl eats anything you put in front of her! She will eat real food that me and daddy eat and she will eat the baby food out of the containers and of course she will drink her formula! My son will eat real food when he feels like it that goes for the baby food also but he would rather drink a bottle most of the time!! They both LOVE noodles! They can't get enough of the noodles!! lol! I also give them juice ( only 100% real juice for right now) but only 4 oz. a piece per day! But since it is only reccomended that around this time babies should only have around 24 oz. of formula/ breastmilk a day I try to feed them as much food as possible and limit their formula, but it is hard with my son since most of the time, like I said he would rather have a bottle!

My son will be 9 months on the 27th and he is on a pretty good schedule. He eats breakfast around 8:30. He will have oatmeal cereal, fruit or yogurt and some sort of finger food like eggs, toast, bagel etc. He will have a 4oz. bottle of formula at 10:00 before his morning nap. At noon he eats lunch which is mostly table food (soup, mac-n-cheese, pasta etc.) with fruit and veggies and other thinks like string cheese. At 3:00 he will have another 4 oz. bottle and then eats dinner around 5:30. He usually eats oatmeal cereal with veggies in addition to a little bit of what the rest of the family is having for dinner. He then has a 4oz bottle before bed. Sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night and has another 4 oz. bottle around 5ish. He gets water in a sippy cup and drinks it with all snacks and meals. For snacks he gets Gerber puffs, Yogurt melts, graham crackers, animal crackers, vanilla wafers etc.

Nothing other than breast milk!!! Perhaps a few nibbles of solids, but otherwise, I can't really get her to eat anything!!! She is almost 10 months. I'm a La Leche Legue member, so despite my urge to freak out, I have the support that says I don't need to. :)

My baby is a piggy! lol. she will almost always eat any time you put food in front of her. She is getting less and less interested in her formula though. She eats pretty much what we are eating most days except for a jar or two of baby food. Our schedule is more or less on demand with her bottles but she eats breakfast between 8 and 9 and it's usually a fruit or a yogurt, sometimes a baby food mixture of oatmeal and fruit. She eats roughly 4oz of solids at breakfast. She usually eats lunch after her morning nap so near noon and will have lunch with us- sometimes noodles, potatos, she loves hamburger and grilled cheese. If we aren't eating anything she can have she will have another 4oz of baby food- either a veggie or a meat/veggie mix. Then we do dinner around 5:30- she will usually eat closer to 6oz of food at dinner if eating baby food, or she will snack on what we are eating. We average about 24oz of formula these days, but somedays we really have to keep offering it to her to get her to drink it.

my son is also 9 months old, we was advise by our health visitor that by 10 months he should be eating what we eat without salt/pepper/sugar. So breakfast is porridge with scoop of formula or with raisins, sometimes he has wetabix with banana and after he has a bottle (formula milk). Mid morning he has a piece of fruit. Lunch he has avocado/ground cinnamon or peanut butter on toast or eggy bread etc and after he has a bottled milk. Mid afternoon he has organic rusk with a piece of fruit or boiled veggies. For dinner he has pasta w/tomato sauce or skinless sausages or rice w/chicken and afterwards he has his last bottle. I've realise that when he eats some heavier foods during the day he sleeps through the night.

Well as much as I would like to have a SET schedule its hard with my daughter who is 9 mnths almost 10. Shes a very picky eater but usually when she gets up around 7:30 we have a fruit and oatmeal and than a 4oz bottle, around 11 she goes down for her 1st nap when she wakes up around 12:30 we have snack time which consists of some kind of finger food (e.g.- gerber lil' crunchies, pieces of fruit or a teething cookie.) and we've been trying her on the sippy cup so she'll have juice or water that way. That snack is never alot( a small hand-full) but just enough to hold her over until lunch time which I try to keep around 2 pm because she always goes down for her afternoon nap around 3 and she sleeps better with a full stomach, after snack time but before nap time she has a 6 oz bottle. For lunch she has a veggie and a meat or a "dinner" type of food from a jar like chicken and stars or mixed veggies with beef. Thats where her picky side comes in, she wont eat meat from a jar so i do that myself and the veggies she'll eat if they're fresh and steamed, not from a jar also. Its complicated. After her nap she has a 6 oz bottle and sometimes has another snack but not usually she wont eat again until dinner which is whatever the family is having, but I obviously cut the meat into lil pieces for her and after she eats a certain amount of dinner i'll giver her a fruit or a "baby dessert". than within an hour or so of dinner its bath bottle and bed.

My twins are 9 1/2 months old.

Breakfast is a shared bowl of about 8oz of cereal sometimes mixed with fruit and a 6oz bottle (they drink usually 4-6 oz of it)
Lunch is a shared jar of meat,veggies and fruit (3 in all) and another 6oz bottle
Dinner is same as lunch and then they have another 6oz bottle for bed.

Times vary as they set the schedule for the times, and they do get snacks inbetween which is usually whatever my husband or I is eating

Faith is just over 9 months and her day looks a little like this, feeds are flexible but she made her own routine rather than us



Between 6 and 7 (depending on when she wakes)- breastmilk-she always feeds from 20mins to 1 hour

8.30/9ish- breakfast of baby cereal, sometimes with fruit

11.30/12ish breastmilk

1/1.30ish lunch-homemade puree or something like a jam sandwhich and veggies as finger food, followed by fruit puree or soya yoghurt

4 breastmilk (this is always shorter than the others)

5.30 tea puree or finger food followed by fruit puree or soya yoghurt or rice cakes/sugar free rusk

7ish breastmilk

We are veggie so purees are homemade and are things like veg pureed with cous cous or pasta added or something like veggie chilli, spag bol or quorn and sweetcorn chowder. She eats approx 45-60ml as measured by the home storage pot levels. She eats most for breaskfast and least at lunchtime.

I breastfeed on demand as well. Usually he gets two feedings in before lunch, which is usually a jar (or just half of) of veggie blend, and a fruit blend. He also snacks on puffs. He gets another one or two nursings before his dinner which is usually a jar of chicken or turkey and veggies blend. Then nurses before bed.

I make my own baby food. My son is almost 9 months old and he's had brussels sprouts (this was his 1st food), green beans, peas, butternut squash, asparagus, bananas, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, yams, zucinni, avocado, several cereals (wheat, barley, rice, oatmeal), baby pasta, cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, baby mum mums and other finger foods like that. He has 3 solid meals followed by breast milk, and snacks in between meals if he acts like he's hungry.

i was wondering the same thing. my 9 month old eats pretty much everything now. times are usually pretty consistant.. either on or around.
he wakes up at around 7-7:30am, and has 8 ozs of formula right away.
10:00 - apple cereal made with water, and a half slice of toast with jam and drinks water with a drop of apple juice from sippy cup
nap - 1 1/2 hour
1:00 - real mashed up fruit, either a banana or a half cup of raspberries/blueberries/strawberries, as well as some yogurt, and one mum-mum rice crisp.

my baby gets a 6oz bottle then a weetabix or cereal at 8am
lunch around 12 is a sandwich or half jar n a yogurt/ fruit puree
she has a 6oz bottle at 2 doesnt always finish this
dinner around 430/5 is a sandwich or half jar n a yoghurt/fruit puree
bath at 730 then a 6oz bottle and goes to bed awake straight after this and she sleeps right through. She is my 3rd baby so basically fits into the same routine as my other two children x x

My 9 month old's somewhat eating schedule looks like this:
wake up for 2 big tablespoons of cereal mixed with juice and we try 6 oz of formula (she doesn't always drink it all) 4ish hours later for "lunch" we have a jar of stage 2 foods, usually one mixed with a protein. We wait 30-60 min before offering formula, 6 oz. 4ish hous later, depending on the time, she has another jar of stage 2 food or 6 oz bottle. I try to do the food between 4:00 and 5:00. She will have a 6 oz bottle before bed and sleep through the night. I've offerd her the puffs but she only plays with them. It fascinates her that they stick to her fingers!

My 9 month old son is breastfed, his schedule is usually breastfeed first thing in the morning,
one weetbix made up with hot water about 30mins later, breastfeed before his morning nap,
fruit and custard or yoghurt when he wakes up (about half a cup all up?),
breastfeed before afternoon nap,
dinner at 5:30 which is half -3/4 cup of veges, pasta, rice, tuna, chicken, cheese etc,
breastfeed before bed at 7pm,
and he wakes 1-2 times for feeds during the night.

He's eating quite chunky food now that he has teeth and has figured out how to chew so doesn't really have purees any more :)

omg Tanya how much do you feed your child and I do not believe you ONE BIT at all the words you claim you child says, that many? please, maybe get your ears checked bcz you "think" your hearing things that your not... :O


Excuse me! Who do you think you are talking to. My son loves to eat and i'm going to feed him if hes hungry. My pediatrician has given me a menu on how to properly feed my baby. YOU on the other hand are feeding your child a teaspoon with every bottle and i asume your child is 9months old or almost..he should be eating a little more than that no wonder he is getting a bottle every 2 hours..I have no idea what ur talking about that you don't believe me on how many words my son is saying he says 2 words Mama and Ba ba =, maybe you mixed me up with someone eles.. I'm almost postive my hearing is just fine thanks

My 9 mth old gets 3 meals plus an afternoon snack. I stagger this with the bottles to ensure she drinks enough liquids. I sometimes give her some apple juice with her meals.
