Isabella is 8 days away from her 6 month mark and she is eating a solid routine of 1st step purees. She gets a 8oz in early morning, 4oz bottle with oatmeal and fruit for breakfast, 4oz bottle with rice and veggies for lunch, 6oz bottle for snack, then a 4oz bottle with veggies and fruit for dinner. It works well for her.

My little boy just turned 7 months and he is eating the same way. I usually breastfeed him early in the morning. Than around 9 am he has rice cereal and banannas and than I breatfeed him again. For lunch he has pureed vegies and fruit and breastmilk. I breastfeed him again for a snack. He than has pureed vegies/chicken/turkey and fruit for dinner and I breastfeed him. I also breastfeed him before he goes down around 9pm. As you can see he loves to eat and he is average in weight and size.

My baby isn't eating purees - he's eating food, we went baby led rather than puree.

mmm I think when you wean and how probably depends on your baby, my daughters weight line went horizontal when she hit 5 months, purely breastfed till then. The HV said it could be because of coincide with weaning. So I tried her with lumps of bannana which she loved, ever since then she's been on three full meals a day eating anything that I cook. Spag bol, Fish loads of veg. Not pureed just cut down into small lumps, she has no teeth. I tried her on puree once at first she spat it out and cried. Weird huh. I only BF now three times a day, once in the morning, in the eve then her top up feed at 10.30. Someone recommended a book "baby led weaning" to me which may help some of you. She seems so much happier now for food.

My little man has been on solids since 4 mths. He's now on stage 2 with three solid meals a day - cereal for breakfast, fruit & veggie for lunch, meat & fruit for dinner with juice (it helps him eat the meat). We also mix oatmeal with his night time bottle and he sleeps 8-10 hours a night. He also takes about 6 bottles a day. He's very active and burns thru a lot of calories especially in his jumper. He's weighs 16.67 lbs

Hi, my son was born on April the 16 and he has been having solids since he was 4 months. He has five bottles a day of formula and 3 solid feeds (breakfast, lunch and dinner) each of these feeds he eats about 3 tablespoons. The type of food he eats is pureed pear, apple or banana for breakfast. pureed corn for lunch and pureed sweet potato, pumpkin or corn for dinner. He loves it! :)
