Can someone tell me if I am feeding my daughter correctly?
Wakes at 5:30 am-bottle formula 6oz
7am (breakfast): Oatmeal Cereal with banana (1tbs of cereal mixed with 3tbs of baby formula mixed with 3 baby spoons of banana) (With about 2oz of water)
8:30am: baby formula 6oz
10:30am (snack): 1/2 jar of fruit (banana or applesauce) (With about 2oz of water)
11:30am: baby formula 6oz
1:30pm (lunch): 1 jar vegetable or fruit (squash, carrots, sweet potato, applesauce) (With about 2oz of water)
2:30pm: baby formula 6oz
4:30pm (dinner): 1/2 jar or jar (depending if she's still hungry) of fruit or vegetable (sweet potato, turkey w/sweet potato, and trying to start her off on meats for protein. such as; chicken with gravy, beef with gravy)(stage 2) (With about 2oz of water)
6:30pm-7:00pm: baby formula 6oz (sleeps during this feeding)
10pm-12am-Usualy wakes in between this time for a 6oz bottle
2:30am-6oz baby formula 6oz
-Then sleeps until she wakes at 5:30am.
This schedule seems to work for her. But I am concerned that I am feeding her too much. Can you provide me with tips? I am a first time mother and your advise is appreciated. Also, having a hard time feeding her meats. She seems to dislike it and gags every time I try to feed her it. Any tips?
