Just wondering some other feeding schedules, with food and formula.
In the morning when we get up around 7 he has some cereal(powder mixed with water) and sometimes some fruit and water.... then about 2.5-3 hrs later he will have either nutrios(kinda like cheerios but for kids, once in homo milk they get very mushy) and some fruit. . or plain whole wheat toast and fruit. and some Homo milk. (probably about an oz drinks it out of a cup) . . then about 2.5-3 hrs later he will eat some lunch (leftovers from night before) or if there is nothing and I dont feel like cooking he will have a 6 oz bottle. then 3 hrs later he willl have another 6 oz bottle. Then he will eat dinner. . whatever we are having..usually some meat, rice and veggies. . then he will have his last bottle and its bedtime around 730. . . And every once in a while he will get some arrowroots...fruit...or mum mums or something inbetween. . but not a lot..not into feeding him sugar etc....he always has water handy. . I am trying to get him off of the bottle at lunch time. . so pretty much he gets 2 6 oz bottles of forumla and the rest is food (the one at lunch, most of the time he has food, but if I am out it is easier to feed him a bottle lol)
Does this sound about right..What are your feeding schedules like.how much formula are you still feeding your little ones..and how much food. .
Thanks. . :)

My son will be a Y/O next wk, he starts the day around 6:30 with a full 8oz bottle, sometimes he drinks all sometimes only half,( he goes through about 4-5 bottles a day) we give him pancakes, eggs, healthy cereals w/ milk... Lunch is sometime the meat stick or left over from last nitghts dinner and for dinner he eats what we do...(he has refused any and all baby foods since he was 9 mnth). As for snacking we offer the melt away puffs ,the gerber fruit twist, ritz cracker and cheese, sugar free jello and we just found out he LOVES pita bread with Humus. We also just found a Juice he will drink, White grape, he refuses all juices but this one so we're using this to entice him to use sippy cup more. He's a happy and healthy boy. He's only been sick 1 time that was 3 wks ago, so we must be doing something right. :)

I feel like my son is still drinking so much formula compared to a lot of babies his age, and I really have no clue how to start transitioning him to food/milk/sippy cups. This is his schedule (times are approximate):

8 am- 4-6 oz bottle
8:30- baby cereal with fruit, or adult cereal in milk (cheerios), or otast, pancakes, scrambled eggs, etc

12- 4-6 oz bottle
12:30- lunch of either leftovers, or those Gerber meals, yogurt or cottage cheese, fruit

3 - 4 oz bottle

5- 4 oz bottle

5:30- dinner, usually whatever we're having

8 (before bed)- 4 oz bottle

I give him a sippy cup with water or a little milk with meals, and he drinks out of it but never a "substantial" amount. Yesterday for his 3 pm bottle I tried giving him a "snack" instead of cheerios and cottage cheese, to see how he'd do not having a bottle (its right before his nap). He woke up after only 45 minutes and drank 6 oz so I think he was still hungry. I can't tell if he's not ready to cut out those bottles or if he's just so "used" to getting them, iykwim.

My little (well big) man wakes aroung 6:30 and has a 150mL bottle (5oz) and then about an hour later has breakfast (piece of toast or weetbix and milk). He is currently regressed to having a morning sleep but usually has morning tea around 10 (fruit and yoghurt, rusk if teething, banana or pear). Lunch is at 11:30 (to keep him in sinc with daycare) followed by a 5oz bottle about half an hour after he has finished lunch. If at daycare he would then have a sleep and have afternoon tea at 2pm (fruit, jelly, yoghurt, cheese, etc). He is still having a 4pm bottle (5oz) but I am hoping to drop this one shortly and replace it with a snack until he starts to eat more for lunch and afternoon tea. Then dinner is at 6pm with a bottle (7oz) at 7:15 and bed at 7:30. He goes through fazes (obviously) where he won't drink his milk and then some days cries when he finishes the bottles so has more snacks! I have just introduced cows milk in a sippy cup which he loves so will gradually faze out the formula and replace with cows milk when he is ready.
I believe in baby led weaning - your bub will tell you when he wants more food or milk, etc so just let him lead the way but it sounds like you are doing a great job!!!

My Dr told me that she has to have 24 oz of formula a day until she is one. To make sure she gets all the nutrients and vitamins in. Food does not have all the vitamins and minerals that a baby needs in it. Expecially DHA and ARA. So she gets 4 6oz bottles and eats twice a day. She eats breakfast and dinner. She is a pretty picker eater though. She has been since day one. Every Dr. is different but the few that I have seen have said the same thing. I am going by them for now. The only thing I worry about is her actually wanting to eat once she turns a year because she is not use to it. But i do feel more comfortable knowing that she is getting all the nutrients that she needs to grow properly!!

Hey- my baby takes 2 bottles a day... 1 first thing in the morning and 1 right before bed. I give him 3 scoops of formula but 8-9 oz of water. (especially because he doesn't like to drink during the day, so I try and get as much hydration as I can). He eats cereal about 3 hrs after he wakes up, lunch around noon, usually a yogurt around 2:30 and dinner around 5. So, 3 meals, a snack and 2 bottles all together.
My little guy is really big and I was concerned he was eating too much and I was creating a problem for him in the future with his weight. So, I asked the dr and she said not to worry until he is 2 years old. Aparently, around 2 they start eating because others are eating, it looks good or they are bored. Prior to that, I was advised to feed him whenever he wants to eat.
Hope this helps :)
