What is your baby's feeding (milk and solids) schedule? What is the amount, when, and how often?
My 9mth baby girl has a hard time drinking her milk. It takes me 30min to 1hr to feed her the whole bottle because she drinks a bit then turns away repeatedly. It drives me nuts. Below is her feeding schedule:
8am - Wake up to Breast feed (BF)
8:30am - 4oz solids (banana, cereal, and yogurt)
9:30-11am- NAP time
11:30am - 6oz of formula
1pm - 3-4oz solids (egg yolk, fruit, cereal)
2:30-4pm - NAP time
4pm- 6oz of formula
5pm - 3oz solids (chicken rice vegetable)
7pm - 6-7oz of Breast milk in a bottle
8pm - Beditme.
Typically she drinks milk 4 times a day and eat solids 3 times a day. She is a small baby, weighs approx 17lbs.
Am I feeding too often? Should I cut down one of her milk feedings?
