Please tell me your feeding schedule for your 9 month olds. We are bottlefeeding, and our pediatrician mentioned that we should drop down to 3 bottles a day instead of 4, and then add some more solids. Just trying to figure out what a typical day looks like with 3 bottles instead of 4.

My 9 month old still has 4 bottles a day. I was giving him 3 for awhile but the doctors were concerned that he was not gaining enough weight so i bumped him back up to 4 bottles a day.
8am-8 oz bottle and then some kind of oatmeal or jar stage 3 cereal
10am-some puffs,water
12-1 jar fruit, 1 jar veggie, 8 oz bottle
3pm-2-4oz of juice, puffs or crunchies
5pm-8oz bottle, 1 jar 3rd stage dinner, sometimes 2 oz fruit
8pm-8 oz bottle
My child for some reason loves his baby food and does not have a lot of interest in adult food yet so i am pushing more non baby foods every week.

i dont know if its right or not bc i am a first time parent but it seems to work for my son. 8am-cereal and bottle 11am- fruit and juice 2pm- veggies and bottle 5pm-meat(or dinner entree like the lazana or speghetti that they got in the baby food jars) and juice 8pm- bottle, i basically do this every 3 hours in the same order depending on when he wakes up to start his first meal, he kinda wakes up at random times every day lol...but that works for my son, but every child is different and may need to be altered a lil or a lil more or less food! he also snacks throughout the day as well

we do a 6 oz bottle in the morning. Snack/Breakfast before a nap cereal w/ fruit. 4oz in a sippy at lunch, with fruit & veggies and some finger foods. 3pm usually 6 oz. bottle, small snack if needed Dinner 4oz in sippy with fruit & veggie cereal and some finger foods. Before bed a 4oz bottle. We also offer a sippy with water if he's asking for something. Sometimes when we take a drink he wants one too. His fruits and veggies are jars, but we are slowly getting away from them as he's getting better at feeding himself. We've been offering him small size bits of stuff we eat and he wants less jar food! Remember they should still get about 24oz of formula/breastmilk a day give or take a little. My guy is 21.5lbs, 30.25 inches and was 9 mos on the 6th.

my son is about to be 9 months on the 27th, i usually do 2 bottles a day of breast milk & cereal (1 in the morning and one in the evening before he goes to bed) everything else is usually solids -- i make 2 servings of vegetables & pasta/potatoes a day & 2 servings of fruit with whole milk plain yogurt. and in between he gets to eat baby cereal, banana, teething biscuit, cheese, berries, watermelon (basically whenever we're snacking, we give him a bit of food too to get him used to variety & to not make him feel left out). then in the evening when we have dinner, he has a bit of our food -- usually some kind of meat, veggies, pasta, etc. to get him used to eating our food (my plan is to have him eat regular table food by the time he is 13-14 months old). so far he loves it and he prefers eating our food to eating what we cook for him.



sometimes, my husband is lazy and doesn't want to cook an extra meal for the baby so he'd give our son a 3rd bottle in the early evening (usually breast milk, banana and a bit of yogurt).

My daughter is 9 months old. When she wakes up I make some oatmeal with some fruit mixed in....about a half hour later she has her bottle. Then about noon she has either a fruit or a veggie, then a bottle to follow. About 5 or 6 she has a dinner, then right before bed she gets her 3rd bottle. She has been on this schedule since she was 7 months old. She does really well with it. Good Luck!

My little boy is on a very similar schedule to the rest posted here. He is still on 3-4 bottles a day. This is his schedule:

7-8 am--6 oz bottle
10 am--4 oz carrot/fruit juice in sippy cup and nap
lunch--2 jars of 2nd foods or 1 jar 3rd foods
mid-afternoon--6-8 oz bottle and nap
dinner--same as lunch
bath
6-8 oz bottle before bed

My little boy only has 2 teeth and gags at food that is too thick so he still can't eat finger foods or even some 3rd foods with chunks in it.

I am nursing but it's kindof the same schedule.

morning : breakfast - cereal, fruit

snack - minigo or little ones yogurt & some wheat puffs/cheerios & sippy cup with water

bottle before nap

lunch - 1/4 slice whole wheat bread, a fruit & my guy loves apple sauce

snack - arrowroot cookie, & more water

bottle before nap

supper - noodles or potatoes and veggies ( I froze cubes of mixed veggies)

bottle before bed.



Obviously you can put whatever, wherever.

Hope this helps!

Annabelle has 1 weetbix for breakfast (7-7.30am) then at 12 she will have yogurt and 150ml of milk, then at 6ish she will have her vegies and then about 7.30pm she will have 200ml of milk.
She used to have a bottle at 4pm but she never asked for it, so i stopped making it for her and she is content with her feeding schedule

My daughter is on 4 bottles a day and she is starting to eat more solids. She still doesn't have any teeth so there is only so much I can give her. Also, my oldest daughter had food allergies so there is a lot of things that I cannot give her. She loves cheerios, fruit and peas. I should try pasta - what other things could I feed her? I need to stay away from milk, eggs and nuts until I can test her at a year old.

We are still doing 4 bottles as well so my schedule looks like alot of the others. I have noticed though that my morning bottle seems like the one I could give up the easiest...I had found that when my husband would get up with our son, he would give him a couple sips of water and then let him play until I would get up (our son will NOT eat for his daddy anymore!) and he seemed to like it more....I think I was giving him the bottle more because I felt I should and he wouldn't always eat alot of it, so I have been delaying it now myself with no issues.
