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(

Reading all of these has me worried that I may not be feeding my little guy enough..
630AM: 7oz of formula
1030: 7oz formula, possibly a yogurt or banana but not always,
2:30: 7oz formula, yogurt or small jar of baby food (I use those bowls of 8 month old entrees they make but he only eats half of it most of the time)
6:30: baby entree and bottle that he never drinks
8:30-9:30: bottle before bed.

He rarely finished the bottles. he'll eat maybe 5 oz out of them but any time he has a bottle and food together he never finished the bottle. He also eats those nestle/gerber "puffs" snacks about half way between each feeding. He doesnt eat a lot of solid food that we eat, i mostly stick to the pre-made baby foods but i give him the occassional taste of our stuff, i'm really nervous about choking. He has 8 teeth but doesnt chew so well. any time i've given him table food that we eat he's always choked on it. not severely but a small cough, like it went down the wrong tube or something. I guess every time is an exaggeration but there have been quite a few of them. I'm paranoid I know and I feel guilty now like i'm not feeding my child enough but he's always happy and bouncy and eats the baby food real good.. maybe I should start giving him the whole baby entree not just half...

My 11 month old boy has a bottle when he wakes up at around 6.30am, of 250mls, he has one weet bix for breakfast after this, he wont have anymore then this or he will have a whole banana. Doesn't matter if i take that bottle away he still only has 1 weetbix. He has a bottle at around 10am of 240mils, he has a sandwich for lunch and yoghurt, he will then have a 200mil bottle before bed at around 12pm then he has a bottle at 5pm of 250mils, has what we eat for dinner, will have a piece of fish, some chips and a chicken finger, or some steak and vegies or a piece of garlic bread and spaghetti, anything really as long as there is plenty of it then he has a 200-250mil bottle at 7pm before bed. He has snacks during the day of biscuits, fruit bars, yoghurt or fruit. If he is growing he will have 6 bottles, 3 big meals and morning tea and afternoon tea and snacks in between to.

11:30a - 4oz Vegetables, Breastmilk, naptime
3:30p - 4oz Vegetables, 2.5oz meat (we just got rid of this nursing period)

My son is 11 1/2 months old. He eats just about anything. Like the one response. He wants what he see's others eating and throws a fit if they don't share. He still likes his bottle. He is still drinking a bottle in the morning (around 6) one before nap at 10, 1/2 bottle in the afternoon before his nap, 1/2 bottle around 4 or 5, one before bed. He eats. yogart and cheerios for breakfast with juice and at lunch he eats what everyone else is eating at daycare or a gerber graduate meal. At dinner is the same he eats what I eat or a Gerber Graduate meal and a jar of baby food fruit. He really loves the Gerber meals. I haven't been giving him too many snacks but I think he is eating plenty between all the bottles and 3 solid meals. He has had all kinds of soups, toast, biscuts, chicken turkey hot dogs mac and cheese, spaghetti cheese veggies shepards pie lasagna popcorn the only thing he has turned his nose up at was the Gerber Graduates diced apples and pancakes with syrup. I also started replacing 2 of his 6 oz of formula with whole milk.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Well, this is what my December baby eats... When he wakes around 7, he has 4-6 oz of formula. After that we rotate between yogurt, oatmeal or eggs for breakfast. Then another 4 oz before his nap which is usually around 10. When he wakes, he has another 4 oz of formula. Then we share with him whatever it is we are having for lunch. Most of the time I try to have soup and salad or sandwiches. During the lunch meal I try to incorporate juice and/or water. Then around 2 he has another 4oz in a bottle. And his final nap of the day happens around 3:30 or 4. Dinner time is spontaneous. If my husband and I are eating something too complex or spicy for little one, we will open a large jar of baby food for Gabriel. But most of the time he just shares with mom and dad. Then another bottle before bed time which tends to be around 9pm. He wakes in the night for a diaper change but will typically go right back to sleep until about 7am. And then we do it all over again. He will also snack on whole grain organic stars and fruit throughout the day. I asked my pediatrician about his intake of formula and she told me to prepare weening him from the bottle around his 1st birthday.

my son is almost a year old, and he basically eats what we eat, and i mean every thing... he is a gannet, he doesnt drink milk any more (well he has half a cup of cows milk a day) and i would say about a beaker of juice... my advice is to put a mat on the floor (table cloth) and put several finger foods out, fish fingers, smiles etc for him to explore the different textures... this is what i have done since he was 4 months old, and have had very little problems with his diet, he eats his meals at reg times, breakfast at 8am, dinner at 12pm and tea at 5pm with snacks inbetween, my son doesnt nap either its very rare if he sleep through the day but sleeps all night in a norml bed, i hope this helps or prehaps it might just be that my son is a complete and utter pig, and babies will eat things in there own time XXXX
best of luck

I've only been giving my 11mth old baby jar food. I see alot of you give your baby toast. My girl only has two teeth. Do your babies gum it ok? I run out of ideas to feed her. I haven't really tried much table food, because I'm afraid she'll choke on it, because of no teeth.

My 11 month old eats all the time lol.

He isnt on formula anymore, he's on milk. But he eats toast, or yogurt in the morning. Then usually a Banana for mid morning snack. After his afternoon nap I give him, soup, mac and cheese, sandwhich, hot dogs ect. Then he will have cookies or crackers or whatever I give him for a afternoon snack. Then for dinner he eats what ever we eat and sometimes has a snack before bed. He drink quite a bit of milk now. Sometimes some juice. And he drinks water too!

My little guy has been eating our food since he was 6 months. And he loves it :)

Hi, well my daughter usually have what I call her breakfast a 8oz bottle of cereal around 4:am, the around 6:30am she would have fruit (whether banana, apple or pear) I send her to nursery so I prepare fresh food for her, either mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin or squash, along with this she has a cup of water and juice. Her nursery nanny would fix a bottle of formula for her 8oz (Klim), so when she gets home she is full, she might snack on my food if I am eating, whether fruit or meat. She will go off to sleep around 7:30pm, would have another bottle around 11:00pm and then she would sleep through until 4:00am and then the cycle goes around again. What I do find is that she becomes a picky eater on weekends, do not know why, but that is just how she is. Each child is different so I have been told, so continue doing the good job that you have been doing so far. Juliette

My daughter is 11 months old, she has a yogourt every day for breakfast with some cheerios, about two hours later she'll have about 5-6 oz of homo milk, goes for a nap, wakes up for lunch and has a full toddler dinner of pasta or mashed potatoes, with veggies and some fruit.
about two or three hours later has another bottle of milk, water with meals, sometimes juice.
she will have some snacks usually a mummum , has an afternoon nap, and for supper another full toddler size dinner, and a final bottle about half hour before bed time. She'll eat anything from chicken, to potatoes, to toast, to pizza bread, macaroni, etc

I also have an early riser... around 6:15am or so I can hear saying "up."

*By 7:15 we are having breakfast: about 1/3 to 1/2 a cup of oatmeal with smashed bananas (about 1/2 a inch), a strawberry, less than half a toast with butter and jelly and sips of my juice.

*By 9am or so she goes down for her AM nap, I give her 5oz and she may have about 2 oz of her sippy (last week we transitioned off bottles during the day and only sippy cups).
She sleeps btw 1.5 hrs to 3 hrs. After her nap a walk and she tends to finish rest of her sippy during that walk.

11:30 Lunch: I try to give her a some type of fruit and dairy, like yogurt or cheese with any homemade leftovers (i.e., spaghetti, chk soup, beans, enchiladas etc..) which are mashed or cut for her. Also some water in a kids cups about 1/2 full.

*1:00 or so Before her PM nap I give her another 5 oz sippy, which she may only take about 1/2 or the whole thing.

3:30 Snack- I give her any leftover milk (breastmilk combined with formula) and add whatever amount to make 5oz with some gerber snack crackers

*5:00 or so Dinner: whatever we are having smashed or chopped up and a gerber cookie for dessert. Some water in a cup about half full.

7:15 or so: bed time and a 6oz bottle and she tends to finish it.

She will take about 13-18oz a milk/day.

You name it my son eats it! Usually he eats a piece of toast in the morning with 8 oz milk. Lunch ( dinner left overs, or sandwhich with half a piece of fruit and another bottle, Dinner as an example a half a chicken fillet with decent amount of rice or pasta and veggies. he eats what we eat minus and hot spices and a bottle before bed. I've tried him on baby food but he just spits it out.

However he has been know to take in a lot more. We went out to a buffet breakfast, he ate a small bowl of cereal, a piece of toast, a pancake, a small sausage, fruit salad, and yoghurt!

My son is just the opposite. He will not baby food anymore. He eats just about any kind of table food, except for hot dogs, grapes, apples, stuff like that. I will give some of the Gerber Graduate stuff, Puffs, meat sticks.... As for liquids, he gets about four/five bottles a day of formula and his sippy cup in between with water or juice, mainly water. He will get his cup when he has a snack in the morning and afternoon. His bottles are 8 oz each and his sippy cup is six oz.

I have no idea how much milk my daughter drinks as I breastfeed :). I gave her jar food once while we were travelling and I pitied her as jar food looks and smells terrible. She agreed with me by throwing it all up around 1/2 hour after I gave it to her. So, no formula (terrible stuff is expensive anyway) and no jar food (overpriced too, if you think about what is in there). If you want your son to eat normal food and not jar food, just keep offering it to him. Let him use his fingers instead of you mashing/pureeing and putting it on a spoon. At this age he should be more than ready to cope with whole foods that haven't met a blender. My daughter will be 11 months in a couple of days and today for lunch she had peas, beans, corn, carrot, brocoli and cauliflower. All of which were steam until extra soft and cooled. I don't feed her anymore, she does it herself unless it is mashed potato. I kinda have to feed that to her or the mess would be horrendous!!

Let your son have a go at feeding himself. Make sure you have extra food on hand that you feed him so you know he won't go hungry. It will take a little longer for him to feed himself but because he is doing it himself he might show more interest in his food.

My baby girl gets breastfed in the night (she sleeps with me so she latches on when she wants) drinks about 2-4 ounces formula in the morning, eats about 2 ounces of baby cereal with 2 ounces of fruit. For lunch some cheerios or 2 ounces of fruit and has about 4 ounces formula during the day. For dinner first breastfed, about 2 ounces baby cereal and 2 ounces veggies, sometimes 2 ounces fruit also and 4 ounces formula. She is not a big drinker or eater but she is chubby!

Not as much as other kiddos and only what she wants to, pretty picky. I am lucky to get 16-20 ounces of high calorie formula down her a day. Obviously weight is one of our issues. She weighed in at 14 pounds10 ounces on Nov 17. We are hoping to get to 15.0 by her birthday on Dec. 4.

Roxanne, it sounds like she's eating fine. she just doesnt eat a lot. don't worry.

i can tell you're not from the US by your use of the metric system, but here it says you shouldn't give a baby egg whites anyway - at least not until they are 2 years old. and some docs (like mine) say dont give them fish either. i think it has something to do with potential allergies. so really, don't worry.

I have battles with my daughter since she was born to eat correctly.

Although she has 3 meals a day she often doesnt eat or drink in between. She refuses water and fruit juice but will drink oros from a sippy cup. She eats very little in the morning, sometimes just a 75g of yogurt. She only eats half a jar of purity stage 3 for lunch and the other half for supper. We have begun introducing her to our foods also but she will nt eat eggs or fish. She only has 2 250ml bottles a day and its a good day if she finishes both.Basically i am stck being a short order cook.

Maybe try mixing the sweet potato with rice. Then add soft cooked peas, or grated corgettes to up the food variety.

To get my 11 month old to eat new veges I add the new ones to ones he already likes, then eventually give him the new vegetable by itself. Mashing cooked vegetables like broccoli (for example) into a home made white cheese sauce also works for me.

Sometimes I find if he has a cracker or something to hold himself he's more open to me feeding him new flavours too.

This is a brilliant website for recipe ideas www.annabelkarmel.com

Good luck.

My son will be 1 Dec. 3rd. He loves his bottle. He gets up all at around 4-5am but he doesn't sleep straight thru the night yet. So our day starts officially at 5am. He plays for a little bit then takes a 6-8 oz bottle. Goes back to sleep around 7am for an hour. Then gets up and plays some more. Then wants breakfast which is a variety but his favorites are grits or oatmeal. Then around 11am he will take another 6-8oz bottle and take an hour nap. Get up play some more then around 1-1:30 he will eat lunch. I can sometimes get him to eat the baby food sometimes he insists on regular food. At dinner he eats what we eat unless he can't wait for it to be done then he will eat a jar of food and eat dinner with us. Then it is bath time. He has been taking another bottle around 7:30 then to bed. I work from home at nights so my hubby is the one doing dinner and bath then bed. I say he goes to bed to early cause he then wakes up at 10-11pm for another bottle but goes right back to sleep. Then is back up at 2-3am no bottle but just comfort. Then up at 5am to start it all over again.

Hi Virginia, I really don't think you should worry about your baby weighing too much as long as she is healthy. Every baby grows at a different rate, and I don't think its too unusual to have a 1 yr old weighing 30 lbs. I have known a few just in my extended family. My children have always been small for their age. At first I worried I wasn't feeding my baby enough until I realized that he was perfectly healthy and my other babies were also slow in growing. It worries me that you want your baby to drop weight. I don't think its a good idea to think that way. Feed your baby healthy food and her weight will even out eventually. It is not in any way a sign of her future weight. As long as she's not eating lots of sugar and junk food, I'm sure her size if perfect for her. And about the milk thing. I just started my son on it since he is close to 1 yr now. I figure a few weeks doesn't much matter if he's handling it well.

Reading some of the posts, I dont think I am feeding my daughter right. We feed her cereal in the morning with a bottle and then about 3 to 3.5 hours later we give her fruits and a 6 oz bottle (she may not take all 6 oz.). Three to 3.5 hours later she gets her veggies and a 6oz bottle, again she might not drink all of it. Then about 3 to 3.5 hours later we give her dinner and a bottle. All of her fruits, veggies, and dinners are baby food. If we go out to eat, or if we have something that is easy for her to chew we will share our meals with her.
Sounds like maybe I should start trying her out on toast and other stuff. I am a first time mom and I dont know the way of it, apparently.

My baby girl is 1 on the 7th December and she is so different to our 2 boys. She drinks more than she does solids but we are changing that. At her age she should b having 240ml per bottle but because of her reflux (so they think it is) we can only give her 180ml at a time she will eat rice crackers, 1 -3 yo food like the muesli bars jars of food the boys scraps what we eat just not much. yet our boys were fussy and big eaters and they r still big eaters they r 5 and 3 now

my son only has his top and bottom front teeth (4 total) i had to stop nursing at 10 months bc he started to bite me on purpose. he realized it hurt so his did it more. i think he thought it was funny when i yelped.

i wish i could give my son more table food but i dont think he can handle it. i've given him chicken and he chokes on it. i would never give him steak right now (we dont really eat it anyway.)

i have given him some ground beef and he did ok with that.

but for the most part, I just dont know what im gonna give him when the baby food stage is done.

im afraid to give him bread or toast. bread is too soft. last time it got stuck to the roof of his mouth and he gagged on it. toast is too crummy. i've choked on toast crumbs and im an adult.

rice and corn can be inhaled so easily.

my doc said no fish til he's 2. no peanut butter. no strawberries. no grapes. no hot dogs.

he cant live on soup and mashed potatoes.

im gonna have to start putting everything in the blender for him.

i also dont know what the correct serving size for each food is. with the jars it's so much easier.

Wow, your baby doesn't have any teeth? My 11 month old has 8 and has had all of them for 1 1/2 months already. Getting teeth or not getting teeth does not mean anything, I just think it's funny how different two babies can be. I can't wait to stop breast feeding as sometimes it can get really uncomfortable!

Thank you for replying! I still do not feed her regular milk, as her ped told me not to before she's one year old. I do feed her chunks of fruit with that mesh "pacifier", and she enjoys it very much:) She is also about 30" high, but her weight does worry me a bit:( I'm trying to lower her weight at least 4-6 lbs. Hopefully she will lose it within the next 1-2 months

I don't really keep that good track of what my son eats. He normally gets a meal/snack and a bottle of either watered down apple juice or whole milk between each waking. I guess that amounts to 3 meals a day since he takes 2 naps. He usually gets a lot for dinner since I feed him whatever we are having. He is 11 1/2 mo. and loves to feed himself whatever we put in front of him. Even my older ones like to give him little peices of what they are eating. He doesn't have any teeth yet, but I haven't bought jarred baby food since he was probably about 9 mo. old. Bananas are definitely the best first try since they are sweet, healthy, and mushy. I also had a little mesh baby feeder I used to introduce him to fruit. I allows the baby to suck out the juice and small particles withought getting a big enough chunk to choke on. Your little one might like that. I wouldn't worry too much about the formula thing since to can switch to milk whenever you are ready. I think the main thing with that is that by this age formula shouldn't be the staple anymore. And as long as you see your baby thriving, don't worry if he's getting enough. They have a way of letting us know when they are hungry. In fact, it seems like almost any drama can be solved with food at this age.

Hi. My baby Alia is just 11 mo old. For breakfast I feed her 1 baby food 2nd stage (fruit or vegetables, or chicken/meat with vegetables. Always try to avoid cereals (oat, rice), as this will make her gain a lot of weight). So again, I feed her for breakfast one 2nd stage baby food jar, 4oz of formula, and a few finger snacks. For her noon nap, she will have 7-8oz formula. Around 2 pm she has lunch. I pretty much repeat the morning meal at lunch and dinner. Her weight now is 30 lb, she wears size 24 mo. Is this weight too much for her age???? Is it true that she has the weight of a 2 yr old?

My son is 11 months old and will eat ANYTHING!! He hasn't wanted to eat any of his jarred baby food for the last 3 months. Once he got a taste of "big boy" food there was no turning back. He is only breast fed twice a day. Once in the early morning hours (around 5 or 6) so that he will go back to sleep and once just before bed. For breakfast he has a bowl of cheerios or a package of regular oatmeal mixed with some sort of fruit (anything I have on hand). On occasion he will have pancakes with us. He has a midmorning snack of crackers or dry cheerios and yogurt (full adult sized one). He then has lunch, ususally toast and a bowl of soup, Then a nap. Then a snack, usually some fruit. Then he will have whatever we are having for supper. Spaghetti, fish, chicken, rice, pasta,potatoes, stuffing, pretty much anything. He loves to feel himself, which can get messy, but is fun to watch. I feed him whole milk with all his meals and water in between.



He weights 22 1lbs. and is 30" long. He is a heart baby and is huge for his condition. Usually heart babies struggle with gaining and keeping weight on. Not my boy!

Help!!! My son is 11 mo but is a picky eater. Since he was 6 he refused all formula and now wont take milk and is still nursing. Every meal is a fight and he has no favorite foods save for toast and cherios. Takes yoghurt and jar foods but is still refusing any home made foods. He will fight for my food not to eat but to scatter it all over:-(

My son is 11 and a half months and he will eat anything, I feed him breakfast at about 8, lunch around 12 and then dinner at 4:30 and he has a 4 oz bottle of juice (half juice half water) with all 3 meals and then he has 5-8 oz of formula before his nap and at bed time (which is 7:30) and then he also wakes up about 12 am and i give him another 3-5 oz of formula and then he doesn't want anything else until breakfast.

My daughter takes only 2 8 oz bottles a day and eats 3 meals a day. Throughout her day she will have water/juice and some snacks. I would say for 90% of her meals they all consist of "big girl" food.

My son is 11 months old and I call him my human garbage disposal. He pretty much eats anything and everything and has a huge appetite. For breakfast he gets first a breastfeed followed by 150gr of yoghurt with fresh fruit. He gets corn and ricecrackers for snacks. For lunch he gets 2 slices of bread with whatever followed 1 hour later by 200ml of formula. As snack he gets fresh fruit and a cup of cows milk. Dinner he gets half of whatever Im eating. 1 Big potato, a few serving spoons of veggies and half a steak. Then before bed he gets 200ml of formula.

He weighs 13.8kg (30.5lb)

My girl is down to typically one 8 oz. bottle a day for when she wakes in the mornings. She has two snacks during the day and a meal at lunch and dinner. Lunch and dinner includes a jar of stage 3 baby food with either apple sauce or pureed fruit. She also has 10-16 oz of apple juice per day (I leave it on the floor for her to get it when she's thirsty).

Occasionally, she has a bottle if she wakes up screaming at night, but we're trying to get her away from formula all together so I try to just comfort her and put her back to bed. We are trying to introduce her to whole milk, but she turned her nose up at it the first time I gave it to her so now I just mix it in with oatmeal. She's on the skinny side, but she's tall and a good eater.

Hello, my daughter who will be 1 on Dec. 1 is similar to your baby. She's not really a fussy eater, she just doesn't want to try anything new. She wants to eat the same thing: Awake to a 6oz. bottle (she's drinking half formula/half whole milk now), 9AM: Breakfast (1/2 waffle, yogurt w/ ground flax and fruit). Noon: Lunch. (Food I puree [Fish/Veggie Burgers/Spaghetti/Veggies, etc.], Cheerios and a 6oz. bottle). 3PM: Snack (Mum mum and 6oz. bottle). 6PM: Dinner (Food I puree, Fish, beans and veggies usually & and a pick up food like a piece of toast or cheerios). Bath, then 7PM (6oz. bottle).

I've been trying to get her to eat more pickup foods. I try to make something new a couple times a week for her, but she continues to refuse everything. Recently I made her some sweet potato fries and bought some animal crackers. Surely she would like a least one of those... No, she won't touch the animal crackers and she just started to pick up the fries after 3 days of trying. She hasn't eaten any yet, but she's a least letting her lips touch them before she drops them like a bad habit. :-\

Like Hayley said above, I think she knows that if she refuses the food, I'm going to offer her something else. I need to get out of that. I'm always afraid she's not going to eat, and she's going to wake up in the middle of the night hungry. :-\

Hey, my daughter ava is 11m 1 week and eats/plays with one slice of toast in the morning and about 2/3tbs of a cereal in the morning then has a banana, half a sandwich for lunch with a yogut goes down for a nap with water for 2hrs then has a small portion of what we eat for dinner (alll our food is cooked without added salt etc) then has a 8oz bottle of milk for bed at 7 then shes up again at 7... When it comes to fussy eaters they say that persiverance is the best. A baby will never go hungry if he is hungry in the end he will eat what you offer, at this age he already knows that if he doesnt eat what you give him he will get what he wants (within reason) I have a son of 7 now so have done the whole fussy thing and as long as you set the rules he will in the end eat most things you give him

my son is only eating jar stuff too.



he eats twice a day but im going to up it to 3 times a day very soon.



breakfast

2 tbsp baby cereal

2 oz fruit



dinner:

1 jar veggies

1 jar fruit. (sometimes theres meat in the fruit like a ham/pineapple combo or a chicken/apple combo.)



and sometimes if he's still acting hungry (aka crying when i get up) i'll give him a gerber baby yogurt too.



he also gets a handful of cheerios to keep him busy whenever we're in the kitchen (like if i'm cooking or doing dishes. or when my husband and i are eating.)

i don't really give him what we eat yet unless its really mashed or easily dissolved.

i'm afraid to give him a lot of table food.



he's 20 lbs and 27 inches. he's small but he likes to eat a lot during dinner, hence the reason i wanna start giving him 3 meals a day.



he's still on a 3 hour schedule for bottles. watch out if you don't give it to him lol.



7am: 4 oz bottle

then he'll go back to sleep, thank god

10am: 8 oz bottle

11am: breakfast

1pm: 4 oz bottle and nap

3 pm: wake

4 pm: 8 oz bottle

5:30 pm: dinner

6:30 pm: bath (if we have time lol)

7 pm: 4 oz bottle and bed.



and sometimes i even get to eat and shower too. lmao.



ok so he gets about 28 oz of formula per day. may be too much but he is happy.





i'm working on writing out a 3 meal per day schedule right now but its not done yet.

My son is almost 11 months and eats regularly. He wakes about 8 and eats a serving of oatmeal and a 6oz bottle of 2% milk. He naps at 10:30 and is up about 12. He eats a jar of food and a bottle. He naps again at 3 and wakes up about 5. He snacks on a bottle of milk. At 7 he eats jar food or whatever we are eating and a 6oz bottle. After that he gets a bath at 9 and bed at 10. He does not get fed thru the night. I also stopped formula at 9 months of age.

3 bottles per day, in addition to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. She usually doesn't eat all of her pouch of lunch or dinner (those Sprouts pouches.) And she's a bit of a grazer... here and there. I'd rather condone the small mini-meals, than huge 3 straight meals since the history of our family is we like to eat and overeat! LOL!

my soon to be 11 month old son just doesnt stop eating all day... he waked up at about 7am where i give him a quick breastfeed, then its breaky time at around 8am where he will either have 2 pieces of toast with vegemite or he will have baby porridge, then he will have a snack of strawberries or banana at around 9:30 and then he will have 150ml of formula at around 10-10:30 and then he has a sleep, wakes up for lunch around 12-12:30 where he will either have a sandwich or sachet of food for 10+months, then some rice crackers, in the arvo if hes hungry then he will have fruit or rice crackers, then dinner is around 6 where he will either have what we are having or i make him pasta or he just has a jar of food, then he has breasfeed at 8pm to go to sleep

My son eats everything too! He has 3 meals per day and 1 snack - plus 2 x7oz bottles (sometimes more) and he also drinks water mixed with juice throughout the day (about 6oz total). His meals consist of
Breakfast - 1/4 cup Oatmeal and about a 1/4 cup fruit (sometimes an egg yolk and toast- plain)
Lunch - 1/4cup mashed veg, 1/4cup meat and some yogurt
Snack - anything I have on hand .. fruit, yogurt, veg or infant/toddler snacks
Supper - he will usually eat what we are eating. Fish, mashed potatoes, spaghetti, chicken, rice etc

It sounds like your son is doing well. The only thing I can think of, is if your baby is still waking at 1145pm for more bottle .. then maybe he could eat more for supper.

sounds like your son is a healthy eater! My son eats the same as yours but is still drinking more formula. I am watering down the formula at night time so my son stops drinking at night. Sometimes he takes just one bottle at night, some times he takes three bottles.
If your son is fussy with non jar food, then just make the texture the same with your food, and then here and there just add bigger pieces to chew on etc.
