I have been a stay-at-home mom since my girls were 6 months old. I try to keep them on the same schedule for sanity purposes. Anyway, they had their 9 month check up yesterday and their doc said I should be feeding them 26-32 oz of formula and 3 solid meals a day. Wow!!! I feel like they are getting a lot already and now I need to feed them more. Don't get me wrong, I understand as they get older they'll increase their food intake, but sometimes I feel like I'm shoving food into them. My schedule is below. Please offer suggestions or helpful comments. Thank you!
Wake up - 7am - 7/8 oz bottle (cereal snack about 45 mins later)
Nap - 9am-10am
Meal - 10am fruit and oatmeal
We try to get out of the house around 11 everyday. Sometimes they take a little nap in the car.
Bottle - 1:30 pm 7/8 oz
Nap - 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Meal - 4:30pm veggies and meats
Bottle - 6:45pm right before bed
Any suggestions? I know I need to add yogurt/cheese and bread in there somewhere soon.
