Feeding Schedule for an 8 month old

Amanda - posted on 03/29/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




My daughter will be 8 months in a week and I really would like to be giving her one last bottle at bedtime instead of having to go in and give her one more at 11. As of right now her feeding schedule has been 9:30am-2oz. fruit mixed with 2 Tbl. cereal and a 4 oz bottle, 12:30-4oz bottle, 3- 4oz. bottle, 6 4oz. veggie or meat mixed with 2 tbl. cereal and a 4oz. bottle, 8:30 5oz bottle and 11 8oz bottle. I just wanted to see what feeding schedules you all have for your 8 month olds.

my daughter is 9 months old right now this is what her feeding is like: First feeding of the morning sometime between 7 and 8 in the morning she gets an 8 oz bottle. Then she takes a short nap, when she wakes up (around 10 or 11) she gets about 4 oz of fruit mixed with a litte yogurt and a tablespoon of one of the infant cereals. Then about an hour later I give her a 4 oz bottle. a couple hours after that I usually eat my lunch and I usually share a bit of it with her (no spices or anything, just plain, if I don't have anything like that for her lunch I'll make something) I give her as much as she wants to eat. Down for another nap. When she gets up from that nap it's another 4 oz bottle and then when it's dinner time she get some of whatever we are eating (I do the same as for lunch) she eats as much as she wants. Her last bottle is around 7 or 8. An 8 oz bottle. Then she sleeps through the night.
