I am just looking to see what other December babies are taking in, in terms of solids and formula. My son has either one slice of toast, or 1/3 cup of baby cereal at breakfast (around 7am). I switch it up to keep him from getting bored. He will drink 5-7oz before his nap at 1030am. Around 12pm for lunch he will eat one large jar (7.5 fl oz) of 8month baby food. He has another 5-7oz of formula around 2:30pm. For supper, around 5pm, he has another large, 7.5oz, jar of baby food. 7:15pm, bedtime, he drinks 5-7oz of formula. He often wakes at 11:45pm for another 3-4oz of formula and then sleeps until 6:30am. I have heard other mothers say they were told to keep formula intake under 20oz at this age? Just wondering how you other momma's were doing with this? How much are your babies eating?
My son is also very fussy when it comes to eating anything other than jar stuff, even homemade food. He rebels against chicken, ground pork, egg, pasta etc. Unless I blend it into a jar of sweet potato. I just want to make sure he gets what he needs to thrive. Any moms have advice for this? :o(
