food vs formula

Angel - posted on 08/03/2009 ( 6 moms have responded )




So my son was born on the 24th...and he only drinks like 2 or 3 6 oz bottles a day and the rest of the day he eats food. He eats whatever we do, and eats a good amount. I am wondering what everyone else feeds their babies vs how much formula they are eating

my baby started off only drinking 3oz about 5 feeds...then as times move on she can have 4oz a feed for 2/3 feeds aday...starting weaning make things worst. she even drinking less. Then she regularly she can have 5oz for 2/3 feeds. But foods is a mess not really having them..only like 2 or 3 bites...........There is 1 point I really think I am a worst mom ever. As I will sit infront of the high chair for hours to feed her..until the next meal is near!! Now suddenly she is cathing up...she is can be having 6 /7 oz of milk 3feeds still have a full feeds of foods which what we are having. When this all started it has make such a relieved into my life!! Honestly I think let the baby do what the want. As they are human...we will have what we want!............

My daugher drinks about 15 ounces a day and then we feed her rice/baby food and intraducing regualr food as well. I spoke with our diatician and she said to let our little girl drink to thirst and feed the rest of the time. I think our kids are getting old enough where it is that they tell us what they want to eat or drink!

My son born on the 23rd, eats three meals a day (big meals!) and has three 6 oz bottles a day too. He'd eat a lot more if I let him!!

My son is about the same as yours; born on the 28th and only having 2 or 3 bottles a day, and he usually won't finish them. He's been going like that for a couple months now, and my pediatrician said not to worry about it, but make sure he gets other sources of dairy like cheese or yogurt (but not whole milk until one year). He loves cheese; I'll give him little pieces while I'm preparing his dinner. And he likes yogurt too, either as an afternoon snack or mixed with some fruit for breakfast. And he typically eats what we do for dinner (he loves spaghetti!).

Every baby is long as your ped isn't worried & your baby is happy then dont doubt yourself. No one know's him better than you :)
