I'm confused on how to start a schedule.
Gerber.com says that I should give him 4oz in the morning, another 4oz & oatmeal & some type of pureed food for breakfast, a morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, & then a 4oz bottle before bed.
I don't see how to do this because Carson(5 months) is so used to having an 8oz bottle every 4 hours! & I'm just worried about his nap times, especially with all these eating times.
What are your eating schedules for your children & how did you fit it in with his/her nap time?

I used to do breakfast when she woke up, nurse for nap time, lunch when she woke up, nurse for afternoon nap, small snack when she woke up then dinner around, 530 nurse to bed at 7. Dont get to worried about how much food he eat and follow his lead. Until there one food is fun, milk is still there main food source just keep getting him to try new food and slowly decrease the milk as he want more food.

Then when he hit like 8 months it was breakfast, lunch and dinner and milk right before naps and bed.

I started doing breakfast and dinner from the get go. He'd have a few sips of water when he woke up then some Farex then a bottle then a nap then bottles, nap through lunch time and then some pureed pumpkin or other type of food at 4 or 5 pm then a bottle then bed.

I do a breakfast when my daughter first wakes up (between 7-8am), then she nurses before her nap time at 10pm, she then has lunch when she wakes up, then nurses again before her next nap at 2pm, she then has a small snack (depending on when she wakes up), and then dinner at 5:30pm, plus some rice cereal right before bed, at about 7:30pm.
