Hi all, just wondering if some of you mommies wouldn't mind sharing your feeding schedule (including milk) for your 15 month old. My daughter has always been a good eater but lately, meal times have been a challenge. I am not sure she is eating enough. I don't think it's a matter of her not wanting the food, I just think there is something out of whack, like maybe she is getting too much milk.

If your child is on a schedule that works for you, I would love to hear it!

On 24th of August my son turned 15 months and this is his schedule...He is transitioning to one nap from two and right now it's like this(but when he falls a sleep around 10AM then I know he will have 2 naps, but still, the "schedule" fits to the original schedule.)

9AM breakfast (every day is something different from scrambled eggs to crashed biscuits with milk), he drinks water with it and after breakfast I breastfeed him

Noon is lunch(something that we eat also, always cooked, warm meal, like noodle soup, pasta, mashed potatoes, lentils, meatballs and such...), again, water with it, and after lunch breastfeeding, then nap.

When he wakes up, around 3 is snack time, usually yogurt, fruit and puffs/biscuits or cheerios, water with it, breastfeeding after

6pm dinner, usually one of jar #3 vegetable dinners or sometimes toast sandwich with cream cheese, and ham, turkey, he gets a cup of 4-5oz of whole milk with it

and around 8 some biscuits or fruit for a quick snack, since at 9 it's breastfeeding and him going to his crib

I hope this helped, I like reading about what other babies are eating at this age and how much :)

My daughter is 15 months and I have recently learned that my feeding schedule can be improved. It used to be breakfast at 7, lunch at noon, dinner at 5, and a bottle of milk or snack at 10am and at 2. Then she might have a little snack before bed if she was REALLY interested. This was based on my eating habits and the idea that keeping a small amount of food in her system will regulate her blood sugar level so she will stay content daily. Alas, it's been brought to my attention by the medical field that while that is a good schedule for an adult, it is better to feed a 15 month old only 3 main meals, with MAYBE a small healthy snack if she is really active or we are going to be out longer and will throw her meal schedule off. The reason for this is because she needs to learn to EAT at MEALS-otherwise there is the tendency for her to learn to eat all day long-which results in a higher tendency for obesity habits later. Since doing so, I have found a pattern where she eats a LARGE breakfast of a combo of either oatmeal, yogurt, a fruit-maybe eggs, a SMALL lunch (usually because she is more interested in playing so she eats a light grain/vegetable mix and goes right back to playing), and a MEDIUM dinner (protein, grains, veggies, fruit for dessert). She has milk at meals (usually 12-16 oz total for all meals), and drinks mostly water throughout the day (several glasses!) She's a great eater and tries LOTS of different things. Also, when she is going through a growth spurt she eats more, then when she isn't or if she's teething, her habit changes, too! Good luck!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Hi, I am a working mother and my day starts a bit late(my office starts at 11 am) and hence ends up late.
My son will be 15 months in next 3 days and he is a very fussy eater.
Here is his eating schedule:
He wakes up at around 8 am, before waking up he have a 6 oz of cow's milk bottle.
9 am- Breakfast- he have semolina/oats pudding made in milk or one egg and 1 banana
12 pm- Lunch- Some vegetable soup and few bites of bread / rice and lentil mixed khichdi
1 to 4 pm- sleep- He takes 6 oz of milk bottle again
After waking up at around 5 pm- A smoothy made of all available friuts at home and full cream milk and sometime I mix cottage cheese in it.
8 pm- Dinner- home made bread with veggies or with milk
He sleeps at around 10/11 pm- I give him 6 oz of milk bottle again.
He have water in cup throughout day.All his food is home made.
During his last checkup at 14 and half months he weighed 10 kgs.
I know his schedule is not good at all, I am trying and looking for changes.

My son is 13 months old. He's not on a feeding schedule at all never have been. I have taught him to say eat-eat. So I asks him do you want eat-eat and he responds by saying eat-eat. My son have days where he will not eat a lot. I don't worry because when he does eat, believe me he eats.

Hi , im a mother of twins - a girl & boy . i feel inorder for ur kids to have proper meal the high chair plays a critical role .both my kids have all their meals on the high chair (since they were 4 months) currently they sleep throughout the night (with us unfortunately) and their routine begins like this ...
7 am - milk 7oz
8.30am - cereal / bread & butter toasties + a full fat youhurt
10 - biscuit / fruit
11am - milk 5oz & nap for 2 1/2 hrs
2.30pm - lunch (rice & veg puree) this is a great way of getting them to eat all their veg / greens, meat & egg.(i sometimes gv mac & cheese or creamy chicken noodles..) since they will get bored with the same menu..
4pm - fruit / fruit juice
5pm - milk 4 oz
7 pm - Dinner ( same as lunch menu)
8 - bath & bed ...and finally we get sometime to take a breathe...!!

We just went in to our 15 month checkup and my son's doctor said feed him what you will have for dinner. he/she might not be interested in eating right now especially if the child is on the go constantly. I usually start with a sippy cup of milk. Then try a good breakfast of eggs and yogurt and fruit. For lunch I give him milk and mac and cheese or some of what i am eating. For dinner I give him milk and whatever we have for dinner. Then he gets a bottle (yes bottle) of milk before bed. He sleeps from 930 until 830 and it seems to work for us. He also gets a bottle of milk at nap time which is about 1130 and 1530. He only gets a bottle at nap and bed time. We are easing that away now too

My son only has 3 or 4 six oz bottles of milk. I usually feed him breakfast about an hour after he wakes up, lunch around noon, sometimes later b/c he tends to nap during that time. dinner around 7ish. In between, i try giving him lots of healthy snacks. His favorite is the toddler yogurt by Stoneyfield.
side note: my doc did tell me at his 15 month appt that around this age, they begin to eat less since they are no longer growing as much/fast as they did before. My son was a terrific eater until just recently too... i'm having a hard time finding/making toddler food he likes.... so far, he loves pasta.

Like earlier posts have mentioned, I really wouldn't worry too much about a 15 month old schedule as long as your daughter is maintaining her weight. I think the whole feeding thing is one of the most confusing and worrisome parts of raising a child. It's totally normal for your daughter to eat a ton one meal and barely anything the next. My little guy wakes up around 8, eats breakfast - usually a pancake, cereal or oatmeal, some fruit and yogurt. Lunch is usually a sandwich, fruit and yogurt. Dinner is whatever the family is having. I offer milk at every meal, and he has water available to him all day. We're still giving him a bottle of milk before bed (he doesn't need it, but my husband doesn't want to give up that special time feeding him!). He sleeps well and has no issues with growth or development. Good luck!

I have to say that the crib thing may be an issue for some, but to tell her its unhealthy for her child to not sleep in one or not sleep till 11 is just wrong.. Some babies dont need as much sleep as others and when the baby is ready (as is the parent) I am sure she will make the decision for the child to sleep elsewhere... Its not fair to judge what works for someone just because it didnt work for you...

My daughter just turned 16 months and I would say for the last 3 months, its been touch and go with her eating and drinking. For the most part, its pretty consistent though.

In the morning, when she is awake for about 10-15 minutes, I give her one sippy cup of milk (8oz) and a cereal bar or fruit puree/cereal mix from gerber or oatmeal. I try to change it up every couple days. About 2 hours later, she gets sliced fruits, whatever is in the house and her first sippy cup of 3/4 water and 1/4 juice (varies between grape, orange, grapefruit, apple, berry). Throughout the day she has the sippy cup of water and juice mixed together, not to get more than 4 or 5 oz of juice a day and still hydrate with the water.. it helps to save on juice too.. LOL

For lunch, she eats a gerber meal, or a few chicken nuggets (Tyson brand seems to work and taste best) with a veggie (puree from gerber or canned from pantry). A couple hours later she will have a couple cookies (arrowroot or banana cookies from gerber are her favs right now). And usually add in an applesauce or yogurt... I started Danonino yogurts a couple weeks ago that seem to work better for her and they have double the calcium of milk...

For dinner she usually eats whatever we make, portioned out for her, with her sippy of juice. Then she has dessert, which is usually a puree dessert from gerber or some sugar free melty pop. And an hour or so before bed she has her last sippy cup of milk (8oz). Its important to know that toddlers at this age do not need more than 16oz of milk a day, that includes any doses of cheeses, yogurts, etc... Going over by a few oz is OK but not anything near 26ozor more, as what my pediatrician says.... Not sure if yours says the same or not..



I also give her Poly_vi_sol vitamins one time a day to ensure she gets everything she needs....



I hope this helps you a little.. This age is hard to determine if they are eating enough... Just think healthy foods and you should be OK.

Kelly, there is nothing wrong with a baby going to bed at 11pm, mine does mostly. He also sleeps with me which is perfectly healthy (actually good for the baby).

I think that is so strange that your child doesn't go to bed until 11pm. he needs to be on an earlier schedule. you will have major issues when he's older and going to school. you need to break him of not wanting to sleep in his crib. not healthy. doesn't sound like he's eating enough either. just a concerned mom. good luck.

I'm still bf, so my son has:
Milk: 7am (he's weaning himself off this feed. When he does, he'll just get breakfast at 7am instead)
Breakfast: 8am (cereal + piece of toast)
Morning tea: 10am (biscuit or piece of fruit)
Lunch: 11:30am- Sandwich + fruit (lunch will be at 12pm when he can stay up until 1pm for his day sleep)
Bed: 12pm
Afternoon tea: Yoghurt (+ a biscuit or fruit depending on how much he ate for lunch), when he wakes from sleep or around 3pm
Dinner: 5pm (usually what we eat for dinner)
Milk: 6:40pm
Story: 6:50pm
Bed: 7pm.
This routine works great for me at this age :)

Here is my daughters 15 month old schedule: She wakes up about 8 and drinks a 6 oz. bottle. At about 9 she has breakfast, which usually consists of toast and fruit or yogurt. She has lunch at 12, which is usually a snack platter of cheese, avacado, crackers & fruit and a cup of watered down juice. She naps from about 1-3. When she wakes she usually gets another cup of juice and a snack. Dinner is at about 6 and she gets a diced/mashed up version of whatever we are having; usually chicken or fish, rice or pasta & veggies. Bedtime is about 8:30 and she gets a 8 oz. bottle right before that. I realize that I should be offering her more water throughout the day and I'm going to try harder with only giving her milk in a cup (she hates it when it's in a cup). Thanks for all the suggestions ladies... very helpful.

Breakfast for example, i put a little bit of banana, toasted bread, scrambled eggs, offer yogurt, water and cereals in his high chair. For snacks, cheese, bread. For lunch, vegies, chicken or tofu, then fruits. Dinner, it's pretty much what we eat as a family - pasta, fish, bread, veggies, fruits. Milk in between meals and before bed. I just try to offer him bits of different foods :) There are times he's a good eater and sometimes poor... But when he's hungry he'll ask for food or milk

Luckly my son eats everything all the time. I do not give my son any juice but give him lots of fruit, he gets more fiber and loves that he can easily eat this himself. If you keep milk to about 24 ounces a day and let them choose how much they want to eat, then they will get plenty. Toddlers body's know how much they need better that us parents. We just need to make sure that it is healthy.

my son's schedule changes from day to day because he's not a very good eater but his Dr. says it's normal for kids at this age to go through eating issues. He also informed me if I felt like he wasn't getting enough to eat to give him vitamins (liquid vitamins) which I do every day, but he also said a child will not let themselves go hungry, as long as they are not losing weight than they are okay. Good Luck!!

wow to read everyone's posts about what their kids eat is pretty good to compare my son's with. lol But it seems to me that my son eats a whole lot more loll.
In the morning he eats his cereal, drinks his milk, shares my breakfast, and eats my daughters breakfast that she no longer wants.
Lunch is the same way. He eats his lunch, weather it's eggs/pasta/sandwiches and proceeds to eat my daughters lunch, and drink more milk.
Dinner time, he devours whatever he can get his hands on, then when dinner is over, he tries to climb up on the table to eat whatever he finds. Inbetween meals, he alternates between water and juice and will eat some veggie thin crackers.

Hi Anita, have you considered that she might be going through another developmental phase? My daughter just went through one where she was a bit off food, her sleeping routine changed somewhat and she seemed to be more clingy. She's also just over 15months old. I didn't know what was wrong until a friend pointed out that she might be going through another phase which should last about a week or two - and it did. You will notice that after those few weeks suddenly she might start babbling heaps more and say words you didn't think she knows. Its quite exciting. Also her appetite should come back to normal, and in fact she's more than likely happy to explore a bigger variety in her taste. Most importantly don't make a big deal of her not eating, kids do pick up on your feelings. She certainly won't starve and if you feel that she is drinking more milk than usual, it'll be fine. I still give my daughter formula because I feel that she's getting all the important vitamins and minerals in her formula rather than cow's milk. I also give her a small snack around 10:30am and one around 3:30pm before her dinner. She might not eat as much at dinner some days but I know she's not hungry. Good luck and I hope this might help you. :)

My little dude (15 months) has 1 or 2 weetbix with milk at about 7.30am, a banana or orange at about 9.30am then goes for a sleep until lunchtime, he then has whatever is on offer lol usually something like spaghetti, eggs, bambini pasta or a sandwich and youghurt for lunch, at about 3pm he has a snack, usually a couple of rice wafers and some fruit, and then dinner between 5.30 and 6, followed by a custard or youghurt for desert...he is a pretty good eater and bang on for weight, he weaned himself off breast about 6 weeks ago, and now only has 1x 180ml bottle of cows milk before bed and is usually down from 6.30pm until 7am without any fuss. If he is hungry at other times during the day he has fruit or a pack of raisins...(not that we are always that healthy, he also has been known to get into the choc bikkies haha).

I don't give my child milk, I belive cows milk if for baby cows. I nurse my child 8+ times a day and I give him organic eggs (from my local farm) in the morning usually. I also sometimes put in a grain meat substitue (soy free) and almond cheese. I give him sippy cups of water or almond milk throughout the day and I give him pureed organic jarred foods too. I give him barley with almond milk in it too (he LOVES this). Pretty much I don't worry about his solids because he gets plenty of nutrition from breastmilk. if you arent breastfeeding you can give toddler formula instead of milk because that has nutrition they need and milk really isn't good for them.

my son goes through good eating spurts and bad. He usually gets up and has cereal for breakfast (probably around a cup to 1 1/2 cups), am snack is usually apple and peanut butter on crackers and 6-8 oz of milk, lunch depends, lately it's been lasagna and broccoli, pm snack veggie sticks and flax chips and 6-8 oz milk, dinner is what we eat and fruit too. Yogurt is his after dinner snack before bath and bed. Water throughout the day.

Here's what my daughter was offered yesterday...

AM: Yo-Baby Yogurt, Cheerios, and piece of banana.
AM Snack: Crackers and cheese
Lunch: Peanut butter sandwich (1/4), lima beans, mashed potatoes, and sliced pears
PM Snack: Crackers, cheese, and cheerios
Dinner: Grilled chicken, lima beans, pears, and pureed sweet potatoes.

Does that help at all? She usually eats all of her yogurt in the morning, but then everything else she only eats a few bites here and there. She is significantly underweight so we give her pediasure instead of milk and she drinks about 15-20oz of that a day. I offer it to her anytime she's in the kitchen practically and during any meal or snack time.

Hello there! I actually have no real feeding schedule for my son. For one it's hard cuz I dont put him to bed til around 11 since he's not wanting to sleep in his crib and he actually doesn't wake up til between 1 and 3...crazy I know! So as soon as he wakes up I fix him something and he gets juice or milk which ever he picks! I gotta watch giving him milk tho cuz he tends to have hard poop if so then he snacks til supper and then he snacks til bedtime. And at bedtime I normally give him 2 yogurts. Hope this helps...p.s. my son doesn't always eat all or any of his food. It could be that he wants something else or just doesn't want that.

Hi with my son he eats breakfast around 8am with a sippy cup of milk then at 12 he gets lunch with either juice or water then he goes down for a nap when he get up he gets a really small snack then i cook dinner around 6 and he gets another sippy cup of milk and he gets a bath plays a little bit then goes to bed between 8 and 8:30. Some of his meals he does not eat alot, like today at lunch he barely ate anything but still went to bed for a nap. Kids eat less when they are not in a growth spurt. And kids will eat if they are hungry so don't worry unless she is loosing to much weight. I also have a 4 year old and sometimes she don't want to eat her meals. Just think about yourself do you want to eat all you meals all the time sometimes your just not hungry either its the same with them.

Here is my daughters 15 month old schedule: She wakes up about 8 and drinks a 6 oz. bottle. At about 9 she has breakfast, which usually consists of toast and fruit or yogurt. She has lunch at 12, which is usually a snack platter of cheese, avacado, crackers & fruit and a cup of watered down juice. She naps from about 1-3. When she wakes she usually gets another cup of juice and a snack. Dinner is at about 6 and she gets a diced/mashed up version of whatever we are having; usually chicken or fish, rice or pasta & veggies. Bedtime is about 8:30 and she gets a 8 oz. bottle right before that. I realize that I should be offering her more water throughout the day and I'm going to try harder with only giving her milk in a cup (she hates it when it's in a cup). Thanks for all the suggestions ladies... very helpful.
