Hi. I was just wondering how much baby food your babies eat in a day. Also, how much formula are they getting? Thanks!

I also breastfeed so I don't know how much my little man eats, but he is nursed first thing in the am, then has a 1/2 jar of fruit mixed with 4-5 T of rice cereal for breakfast, then I nurse him, then 1/2 jar of fruit, 1/2 jar of veggie for lunch, nurse, then 1/2 jar of veggie and a 1/2 jar of meat, then he nurses before bed.

Jake's weight has dropped since birth, so I'm on strict orders to nurse at least every 4 hours and feed him 3x a day baby food. The doctor told me that it was ok to give him meats, just chicken and turkey though.

I breastfeed so I have no idea how many ounces of breast milk in between solids she gets. But she gets a fruit with cereal in the late morning or afternoon. She nurses through out the rest of the day and then 2 hours before bed time she gets cereal with a veggie. Then nurses about an hour or 2 after then 9PM is bed time.

We really don't have her on a set schedule with food whenever she is hungry she eats. Also my doctor told me no meats till 8 months old.

I just went for a checkup with my baby. The nurse said half a litre of milk per day is minimal she should get. Since she's on breastmilk, she should have two full feeds a day at least.

My baby girl is 6 months old she has about 24-26oz of formula a day and 2 meals a day. For breakfast she has 2 tablespoons of cereal either rice or oatmeal and about a tablespoon of fruits or veggies, she won't eat the cereal withous something mixed in with it. For dinner she has about a jar and a half of the stage 1 fruits or veggies. I have to wait about an hour between her bottle before she eats her food.

Hi Chelsea, My son just turned 7 months old on May 2. Right now he has about 18-22oz of formula in day. For breakfast he has 4 tbsp of oatmeal cereal and a 6 oz bottle. Then about 3 hrs later he has another 6oz bottle. For lunch he has a half jar of a veggie and a half jar of fruit. For dinner he has a half jar of a meat and some fruit and also a 4 oz bottle. Then at bedtime I give him a 6oz bottle. He doesn't always finish his bottles, just depends.
