My son is almost 9 months old and my boyfriend thinks we are feeding him too much. I have read that he should still be getting about 24 oz of formula a day. However, we are trying to introduce "real food" into his diet now and it seems that he is eating a lot. His schedule looks like:
6:30 - wake up, 1 container fruit with oatmeal mixed in & a 3 oz bottle
9:30 - 6 oz bottle
12:30 - container of veggies & a 3 oz bottle
3:30 - 6 oz bottle
6:30 - container of some type of dinner, or bits of what we have if he can & a 3 oz bottle
9:00 - 7 oz bottle with oatmeal mixed in to help keep him full til breakfast.
He is also eating some Gerber puffs usually throughout the day. Is he getting too much or does this seem healthy?
