I breastfeed my son (born may 17th) every 2-3 hours and give him about 2 jars of purees and countless puffs thoughout the day. until at least 1 year breastmilk or formula should be their main source of nutrition and other foods should just be for tasting.

Chloe was born May 13th. She has 3-4 bottles a day of formula, usually 4-6 oz each and her favorite foods lately are fork-mashed banana and avocado. She sometimes doesn't want to eat certain things like infant cereal, so we feed her finger foods like Cheerios instead. She has started to eat shredded cheese and canned pears cut up. We still use a lot of Gerber 2nd and 3rd fruits and vegetables and combined meals. She even tried soft beans cut up (like pinto beans) and she loves YoBaby yogurt. I've noticed that she gets bored in her high chair and won't eat unless I make it fun by singing and doing silly voices.

Karla,

My daughter was born on May 8th and I currently feed her a combination of stage 3 foods and diced foods. Some days she eats alot, other days it seems like she doesn't want to eat. That's okay, babies know when they are hungry and when they are not. Sophia loves cheese, yogurt, sweet potatoes, and pretty much anything else. She eats a fruit with yogurt or cereal for breakfast, usually cheese crumbles and/or a fruit with cheerios for a snack, a veggie(s) w/pasta or other whole grain for lunch, and for dinner I feed her usually whatever we're eating; like spaghetti, grilled cheese w/a veggie, etc.
My absolute favorite website for baby food/meal ideas is: www.wholesomebabyfood.com

Hope this helps!

Since about 6-7 months I have been giving my son whatever solid foods he wants to eat.(Within reason, not chocolate and whatnot) He had teeth by this age already and is a great eater! I don't believe that these doctors are right saying that we have to wait till a certain age to feed our babies certain foods. My son was eating rice cereal at a month old. He needed it as he was never full....our parents didn't have all these guidelines and somehow we are all still alive!!

Kai born 20th May 2009. He has BF milk at 7am, breakfast at 8am (different cereal each day with a bit of chopped up fruit in it/ or 2 pieces toast/ or fruit chopped and coated in yoghurt and then dipped in infant cereal);
BF milk when he wakes from morning sleep, Lunch 1 hour after his BF milk (2 rissoles or salmon patties/ or Sandwich: 2 pieces of bread with spread with a slice of cheese, and diced fruit); afternoon tea after he wakes up from afternoon sleep (biscuit, or tub of yoghurt, or some fruit).
Dinner at 5pm (This is meant to be the carbohydrate rich meal: he will eat about 1 cup of chopped up casseroles and pasta/ or vegetables and meat; then dessert of tinned baby dessert). BF Milk at 6:30pm, then bed at 7pm.
He eats till he's full...usually when he starts playing with his food and throwing it around. He has water with each meal.
I will be replacing all BF, with full fat milk when he is 12 months old (~350mls full fat milk per day).

My daughter was born May 1st and she is completely off baby food except for her cereal in the morning...She eats anything that isn't too hard to chew and of course things that she might choke on such as nuts, popcorn, and grapes...things like that. But 3 meals and snacks and bottles in between satisfy her pretty well...she spits the food out and climbs out of her chair when she's not hungry...or she'll shake her head and won't open her mouth...she definitely will let you know when enough is enough. And she'll let you know in a very loud, angry fashion, if she hasn't had enough.

My son was born May 28th. On average he eats breakfast 1rst thing in the morning after we wakes. Usually it's 3 tablespoons of oatmeal mixed with milk and 1 jar of fruit or yogurt. Then 3 days a week he gets 1 egg scrambled, 1/2 peice of toast and a yogurt. Then about 1-2 hrs later he gets a bottle half milk and half formula (weening him off formula). Takes a 1-2hr nap around 9:30-10am. Has lunch sometime after his nap. Usually ravioli/mac&ch/3rd foods jar, served w/some veg chopped up and some fruit. I give water with lunch and dinner or a little milk. He has another bottle or sippy cup late afternoon. Takes another 1-2 nap. Has dinner around 5-6pm. About the same as lunch but usually he eats what we eat for dinner just chopped up small. THen if not too full he gets another bottle about 1/2hrs-1hr before bedtime. He usually is in bed by 8-8:30pm and goes to sleep awake. Sleeps 10-12 hrs. :-) I am very lucky. He has been a pretty good sleeper since 2 months old and has always eaten pretty well. Hope this helped. It's always nice to hear what other Mom's babies are doing. It;s tough being a first time Mom but exciting just the same. Sometimes he is a little of his schedule but makes up for it later. Take care!

My son was born on the 28th of May 2009. He drinks 4 bottles of formula a day, and has lunch and tea as solid meals (fruit, meat and veggies). He also some times has a snack of yoghurt or fruit before his last bottle of the night. He doesn't have a strict meal time as everyday is different.
I wont worry about how much you feed your son he will let you know when and if he is hungry.

Hi Karla,



I give Tristan food usually when we eat (3x) a day. For breakfast I'll usually puree a steamed apple and pear with a little cinnamon or just mush up a ripe banana with a little cinnamon and nutmeg.



For lunch and dinner it varies. I'm trying to stick to mostly fruits and veggies. I've given avacado, sweet potato, butternut squash, pears, apples, green beans, carrots, pasnips, brocolli. I just usually steam or roast them and then puree them. I try to add a little seasoning, like sage or oregano, or something for some added flavor.



For snacks...he loves cheese, or pieces of banana and we just started introducing cherrios and those organic melt in your mouth bites they sell.



Tristan also still nurses, and nurses every 4 hours or so...and all night long :)



If your still BFing...as long as he's still nursing every 3-4 hours, he should be fine. Food is supposed to be just for "practice" anyways, until a year. So...no worries :-)

Bryce born May 14th eats 2 6ox bottles, one in the morning one the evening then Breakfast lunch and dinner with a few snacks in between. Usually breakfast is a yogurt with some duced fruits, lunch could be a sandwich, ravioli, or chicken fingers. Dinner will usually be whatever we are having cut up in little chunks. He just had pork tenderloin with potatoes and carrots and loved it! I don't really buy babyfood at all anymore except maybe some puffs or fruit strips cause he loves them. other than that big people food.
Babies are pretty could about letting you kow if they are hungry or not.

My baby was born May 13th. He doesn't ever eat baby food.. His doctor says that is a good thing. He eats everything I eat, and has been since he was 6 months. I give him breakfast in the morning, then about 12ish he lays down for a nap then when he wakes up its lunch time and bout 4 he'll eat a snack then 630 7 its dinner time. That's normal but he does eat a lot more in between. He also doesn't drink much formula anymore which his doctor say is a good thing as long as he is drinking milk..

[deleted account]

My daughter is 11 months, and I give her everything. She still eats her infant cereal, but other than that everything, meats, vegetables, fruit, breads, pasta, yogurt, eggs. Sometimes I still puree things, but mostly she's eating small chunks of food now. and then after all her meals I top her up with breast milk. She eats her three main meals, approx. at 8 am, 12pm, and 5pm. Then depending on when she wakes up from her naps I give her some snacks. Some days she eats tons, other days she barely eats a thing.

Shane was also born May 14th, and he LOVES to eat whatever we are eating. Pasta, rice, veggies, everything. He won't eat anything if it's pureed anymore so I just cut everything up into really tiny pieces and stand back so he can shovel it in! He loves peas, carrots, bread, crackers... just about anything. Bananas are a big one, and also scrambled eggs. He eats when we eat, and of course snacks, too. And the crazy thing is he will eat pesto sauce by the spoonful and scream if I stop giving it to him. Crazy kid!

Hi Karla, I'm Hazel Cameron was born on 27th May too. He has always been a healthy eater and we weaned at 17 weeks and is pretty much eating what we have now but in smaller portions of course! For breakfast he has some ready break with his formula around 7.30am, some fruit for a snack mid morning and then for lunch he will have something like Deraley on toast cut into fingers around 12.30pm and for dinner at 4.30pm he has whatever I am cooking such as shepards pie, pasta bolognase, cheesy veg. Hope that helps :)

My twin boys were born May 16. We give them what we have for each meal. I do not puree it, I just cut it up really small. They chew it very well. We have breakfast after their sisters leave for school, lunch around noon, afternoon snack around 3, and supper around 6. They still take a bottle at nap and bedtime but other than that they drink water or 100% juice from a sippy cup.

Hi Karla

My boy was born May 12 2009. He eats everything we eat, just cut up into small pieces. The only thing I don't give him is Peanut butter cause you shouldn't before a year or non pasturized honey. I feed him breakfast at around 9am, lunch at 12 or 1pm and supper at 6 or 7 pm. When he gets up he has a bottle and I am having a hard time weening him off that one. He snacks on crackers and muffins and stuff in between meals. He really eats well when I have my meals with him at breakfast and lunch and even better at supper when my hubby and I are there. I don't know why. He eats toast and or eggs for breakfast or dry cereal. Snacks on graham wafers, or rice cakes or pretty much anything that he won't choke on. He loves biscuits cause they break off in his mouth. He loves hamburger and cooked carrotts and peas and corn. He also loves pasta. I guess I am lucky he eats anything I put in front of him. If he doesn't want it one time I just offer it again anyways, eventually he eats anything almost. Anytime I try to spoon feed him he won't eat. Anyways, hope this helps. Kerry

Hi. My daughter is eating most soft foods that her father and I eat (as long as they are not seasoned too much or too spicy for her) and she also still eats some of her baby food. I have her eating breakfast around 9:30 with a 6oz bottle after, lunch with a 6 oz bottle, supper with a 6 oz bottle and if she wants anything a couple snacks during the day with a juice bottle :) Hope this helps you out :)

Hi Karla. My baby is also 10 months old. She's actually becoming an eating machine. She doesn't like baby foods anymore. She eats regular foods now. She likes rice, chicken, regular and sweet potatoes, etc. I also give her snacks in between like the Gerber freeze-dried yogurt, little crunchies, and some foods that is good for crawlers.

My daughter Railyne was born May 12th. I feed her one container of baby food followed by 3 ounces of formula. She eats bits of crackers and very small easy to eat things like that. She is still figuring out how to chew but she will get the hang of it soon enough. She drinks Soy formula so I am planning on switching her to Soy milk when she is a year old in place of the formula. She doesn't like the plain kind, it has to be flavored. In the mornings she has a fruit baby food as well as lunch time and at dinner I give her a vegetable medley. I hope this helps.

My daughter is still nursing about 4-5x a day (on waking, at morning nap, mid afternoon, and bed time) and we are planning on continuing that for at least another year if she wants to keep going. She also eats two solid meals and an afternoon snack. I feel like I should add in another meal, but she doesn't seem very hungry mid-day and at 28+ lbs, she certainly isn't wasting away!!!



In the morning around 10 am she gets about 1/3 cup of a pureed grain (oatmeal, quinoa, millet, brown rice. or a mixture of several of the above). She has never been willing to eat baby oatmeal or rice--they do taste pretty bad, in my opinion. Every other day or so I mix an egg yolk into her cereal. I also mix in beans or lentils for protein. She also gets at least two veggies and either a third veggie or a fruit. One of the veggies is broccoli, kale, or cauliflower. The other veggie is either carrots or sweet potatoes. Then she also gets one of the following: peas, green beans, pineapple, mango, or apricots. She also gets flouride suppliment and a multivitamin with iron. All of her veggies are cooked at home, not canned--so much tastier!!!



In the afternoon she usually gets a dish of apple sauce or pears. Today she didn't eat very well at breakfast, so I gave her the rest of her breakfast for her snack.



For dinner (around 6ish) she gets oatmeal, plain yogurt (no fruit, no sugar), and a fruit. I put her legumes and veggies in the morning so that if anything gives her gas it doesn't bother her at night. That really hasn't been a problem, though.



She's not interested in pumped milk any more--it's from the tap or not at all now.



She LOVES her food (even the kale!) and doesn't seem to be interested in snacks (except for the occasional shredded kleenex LOL). She's 28 1/2 lbs and 31". I think I would be really worried about her being so heavy if I were giving her any processed foods or sugar, so I'm glad that we've kept her away from those things!!! Her dad is 6'5", so I guess that's why she is so big!



We also give her small portions/tastes of things that we are eating that we think are appropriate for her--she really likes hummus and Ethiopian yellow peas!!! Right now we are keeping her completely away from wheat because there are a number of people with wheat allergies in our family. I really have no idea whether delaying exposure is helpful, but we felt that it was worth a shot!



She also loves koser dill pickles and gets those as a special treat!

The boys were born on the 13th of May and they want to eat everything. I still give them some jar foods. Stage 3 or the gerber graduates little meals. But they also want to eat what we have on our plate. I may give them a little meat, some potatoes or mac and cheese. Sometimes I will cut up little pieces of fruit like banana and cheese slices and give them that in their high chairs. Just depends on how busy we are.

My son was born May 4, he eats whatever we are eating, within a few excepts as to really spicy foods, nuts, honey.

He will not take a bottle any longer - I gave him an option a month ago he grabbed a bottle took a sip, then grabbed the sippy cup did the same and stuck with the sippy cup. I did this a few times and he always wanted the sippy cup, so we got rid of the bottle.

Typical Day

6oz of formula before breakfast.

Breakfast & water- (baby cereals, yogurt, oatmeal, eggs& sausage, cherrios, french toast, pancakes)

Snack & formula - apple, pears, bananas, crackers, cheese, melon, blueberries, cherrios, nutrigrain bar, applesauce, yogurt

Lunch & water - english muffin, grilled cheese, kraft dinner, sandwiches basically whatever I make for myself

Snack & formula

Supper & water - whatever we eat

8oz formula before bedtime

Some days he eats a lot, sometimes it's not very much. I notice the days he doesn't eat much he tends to drink more formula. I have found that he makes sure that if he is hungry he makes sure we know.



He drinks about 1 full sippy cup of water throughout the day. I usually offer both the formula and water and let him decide. Sometimes he prefers one over the other.



Some of his favourite foods right now are lasagna, blueberries, broccoli, steak and bean salad (I never thought a baby would eat bean salad)



We noticed he like to try using his fork by himself and likes bigger chunks of food. Giving him an entire apple usually occupies him for a good 30mins. He will not eat it is we cut it up. Same thing goes with a banana - if we don't give it to him in big chunks he will not eat it.

When he is done he either turns his head or starts throwing the food on the floor, or puts his hands up and says what sounds like "all done"

Malachi was born May 7th and he eats everything, He loves weird things like shredded cheese and lettuce, and potatoes, rice. He hates baby oatmeal and premade baby food out of the jar. So i give him fresh food that i have cooked and jus sit it in the Refrig. for a minute to cool it. All you have to do is try it your baby will tell yu if he/she likes it for instance when he doesnt want it or like it he spits it out. But if he wants more he will grab at it or say uhh../point at it.

Stella was born May 25th and will eat just about everything. She eats everythng we eat except for nuts & honey. This moning she didn't want her fruit when she saw me get out the cottage cheese, so I had to alternate bites of both for her. She has juice with water within reach all day, nurses 4-5 times and a snack in the am & pm between meals. Dinner is whatever we eat, if it's to tough to chew I just put it in the grinder and we feed her. She is starting to want to do it more herself though so I try to find things that balance out her meal that she can get in her mouth herself...

My son was born May 12th and he eats everything!!! I will fix him some mixed veggies and just put them on his tray and he feeds himself....so super easy. I also boil chicken for him and he loves it. You name it he eats it. I usually give him a bottle in the morning, then around 2-3 hours later he eats yogurt, prunes, and baby cereal, next feeding is a bottle, then he eats lunch around 2:00 which is usually chicken, veggies, and maybe a piece of cheese toast (his favorite), sometimes he'll do another bottle or he just waits until dinner, then a bottle before bed. I just alternate bottle and food but he's starting to ween himself from the bottle already so we're beginning to do food more often, just seveal mini meals throughout the day. Hope this helps!!

thining of taking my lo to a dietician cos she does not want to eat at night anymore. It could be that she is teething real bad now but this means that she does not sleep nice due to being hungry during the night. But she does not wake up to eat. Just cries with her eyes closed. I feel so sorry for her

My twins were born on May 12th. In the morning, they have a 7oz bottle of formula mixed with cereal and pureed fruit at around 7:30am. At 11:00, the have yogurt with 4oz of just formula. Then at 2:00, they will have some pasta w/tomato sauce, grilled cheese, mashed potatoes, soup, ravioli, or macaroni and cheese...small pieces of course followed by 6oz of juice mixed with H2O. At 5:00, they have pureed stage 2/3 meat with veggie and fruit followed by 6oz of juice mixed with H2O. Then at 8:00, they have a 7oz bottle of formula mixed with cereal and fruit and off to bed. In between all these meals they snack on corn puffs, apple/cinnamon puffs, baby cheese goldfish crackers or cheerios with water or juice. My son is now into ribs...after my husband eats his ribs, he will give Jaxson a rib and he scrapes the little pieces of meat off:-) my daughter, Leah, is loving mashed potatoes with sour cream and pickles with no skin:-)

I think this point in my daughter's eating habits it's pretty much a guessing game on what to feed her. lately she has been eating a few strawberries at breakfast sliced, along with a waffle torn into fairly small pieces. she use to love infant cereal but i don't even try making it anymore b/c she wastes it. so in every bottle i make, i put her cereal in it. I'll usually give her a jar of stage 2 baby food, but lately she seems not to want it either, unless it's squash. I also give her bananas sliced up, pasta and she likes even little pieces of chicken. Another food she enjoys is mac-n-cheese. I think I pretty much look in the pantry and fridge to just figure out what will be soft enough for her to eat, but somedays I'm just not sure.

Oscar is easting breakfast at 7 of a whole weetbix with water, a finger of toast with vegemite and I offer pureed apple which he sometimes has, other times doesn't.
He then has a breastfeed before his sleep at about 10.
Lunch is a rafferty's 6+ meal, some yoghurt, and some finger food fruit.
He then has another brestfeed at 2 before his sleep.
Dinner is at 6 and consists of whatever i'm having but slightly mushed (usually 3 tablespoons) the rest of the yoghurt from lunch and the rest of the pureed fruit from breakfast. Dinner always has some carbs in it.
after bath he has another breastfeed and then bed.
He often has a final breast feed at 10 before i go to bed.
then he wakes at 5 and has a breastfeed in bed with me.

Hi Karla,
Our kids share the same birthday:). Currently, my son has breakfast (cereal), lunch (rice porridge), tea (biscuit or yoghurt or cheese) and dinner (rice porridge). Milkwise, that has been a struggle as I do not know how much he should be drinking. He seems to dislike the bottle more and more, and it's a struggle as I am worried he may not be taking in enough calcium.

Our baby typically starts of with a 7 oz. bottle at 5:30am, then daddy gives her b-fast (I am working FT these days) consisting of a handful of chex cereal and a stage 2 pureed fruit & oatmeal. For dinner she will usually have a stage 2 dinner either something along the lines of sweet potato + chicken or a puree vegetable + rice cereal and another bottle before bed (she was drinking 6 oz. until last week). She will snack between meals on just about anything: cheese puffs, stars, wheels + a protein like a 1/2 slice of cheese cut into little squares, banana slices (1/3 - 1/2), cantaloupe, avocado, baked sweet potato + russet potatos. Her lunch varies but is all finger foods like: corn nibblets, sliced turkey (cut into squares) or cheese, beans, cooked green beans, or just about any other vege or fruit I can find. She will also grab at anything I am eating. It's not that she wants it but she does want something. So, if I am going to have a snack I also have to make a little snack for my dog and baby or I end up with two beggers...not to mention my big begger hubby! :)
