Hey guys, i know by this question some of u might tink its odd for me too ask about feeding and schedules for my baby when ive been a parent already but the truth is u tend to forget and its been 7 yrs since i last did this so my questions to u guys is what should her feeding sched be, how much milk and food im confused. Im kinda feefing her 6oz first thing when she wakes up with rice cereal or oatmeal in her milk, then its almost like she wants to eat again in 2 hrs so its kinda every 2 to maybe 4 hours i try and feed her stage 1 foods once or twice a day at lunch time and a bed time. I guess i just need to know whats the best and healthyest way to go for her schedule of waking up between 7-9 and going to bed between 8:30 to 10:30?

well if she's about 6 months she is starting to eat baby food, so i would do a feeding when she wakes up, and then a bottle of juice or milk as a snack. really the baby should have breakfast, lunch and dinner, maybe goldfish crackers or fruit as a snack in between. bottle usually for naptime only. Beechnut baby food has morning and evening food blends that make feeding time easy because you dont have to think about what to feed the baby, try it out
