A typical 12 month old feeding schedule is -

A cup of milk, fruit and cereal for breakfast- around 6:30-7

4 oz of juice and healthy small snack- around 9-30

cup of milk a protein,grain and veggi for lunch, 12

dinner protein, grain, veggie and fruit- 4:30

milk and small healthy snack 6:30-7

My daughter dropped bottles at a year and never ate baby food. We did baby led weaning. This is her sleeping and feeding schedule:



She wakes at 6

Breakfast at 7

Snack at 9

Lunch at 11

nap at 12

snack at 3

dinner at 5:30

bedtime 7:30



She drinks milk or water at each meal or snack and whenever else she asks. But not during the night.

My daughter is 13 months old but she has the same schedule as she did when she was 12 months. Here is her 12 month old feeding schedule:





Breakfast 8:00am: about 4 formula scoops of apple rice cereal in the morning with a sippy cup of milk to drink

10:00am: a 4oz bottle of milk

Lunch 12:00pm: a whole jar of a veggie and a half a jar of a fruit for lunch and a sippy cup of juice to drink

1:30pm: a 4oz bottle of milk

3:00pm: half a jar of fruit and a sippy cup of water to drink

Dinner 5 or 6:00pm: whatever I am eating or a toddler Graduate meal and a sippy cup of milk.



Throughout the day between her meals sometimes I give her snacks such as crackers, puffs, fruit, etc. And sometimes I substitute her baby food fruit at lunch with jello or an actual fruit.

Hope this helps!

My kids tend to be big kids, we are a tall family. Below is my 12 month olds feeding schedule. My niece is the same age and she does basically the same, but eats about 1/2 what he does. (I babysit her.)



I nursed most of the first year. He just turned a year and is strictly on regular tippy cups, not the no spill kind you have to suck. My niece is still on bottles though. I mainly made homemade baby food and he mainly eats what we do now. My oldest didn't get teeth until around a year so she was on baby style foods much longer.



6:00-6:30am wakes when rest of house gets going

7:00am breakfast + 8 oz

9:00am nap, 1-2 hours

11:00-11:30am lunch + 8 oz

1:00pm nap, 1.5-2.5 hours

3:00pm snack + 8 oz

6:00pm dinner + 8 oz

8:00pm snack + 8 oz

wow sounds like you have a good baby, my son is different every week no matter what i do..






Those times are really an estimate, except bedtime.  My daughter always ate every 2-3 hrs from birth on demand.  So when she started eating solids reliably around 8mo. she ate breakfast, luch, and dinner with us and then had bottles at the snacktimes and before bed.  Which amounted to every 2-3 hours.  Then we just replaced the bottles with snacks at a year.  She is a good baby tho, really self regulating and happy.  But i'm a bit of a schedule freak.

My girl did not get teeth till 13 months, so solids took a while. She lived on "chicken with rice and vegetables" baby food because it was the only protein she would eat. As long as she got the four food groups, in any order or combination, my doctor said it was okay. She uses the phrase "in the normal range", it's less judgemental on the Mom (my girl was, and is, in the 5th percentile for weight, now 8 yrs old)

My son is also 12 months and because he only just got his first tooth he is now having a bottle in the morning again but otherwise he would have two weet-bix for breakfast with milk lunch whatever i am having afternoon tea, dinner again whatever we are eating and a bottle before bed with water and fruit throughout the day when i feel he needs it.
