So I am just wanting to get an idea on how much I should be giving my daughter who turned 6 months on the 19th. I have her on a schedule because I also have a 6 year old and with her in school and trying to take care of my family a schedule is just easier. Plus, I find it helps her sleep schedule at night. We started cereal at 5 months and working in the veggies right now. So this is the schedule I have her on and added solids into the mix:
6:30 wake up and have a 5oz bottle.
10:00 2T oatmeal and finish the 5 oz bottle I used to mix cereal
1:30 1/2 jar of stage 2 veggie and 5oz bottle
5:00 1/2 jar of stage 2 veggie and 5 oz bottle
8:00 6oz bottle and bedtime
I don't want to over feed her or underfeed her. She hasn't really been able to go longer then 3.5hrs between feedings. Im just wondering if I should give her 4 bigger bottles or just keep what Im doing?! What schedules do you have your LO's on?
