my daughter will be 5 months in four days and she loves eating with the spoon and doesnt love the bottle so much... she eats a stage 2 fruit in the morning at 7 drinks a 6-8 oz bottle at 9ish with a fight and 11-12 eats cereal with 5 scoops of formula in it so shes getting the formula with water in a sippy cup then eats a veggie stage 2 at 2ish also water in a sippy cup, she eats another stage 2 fruit or veggie for dinner usually between 4-5 and then has 6-8oz bottle around 7ish.. she happy an content. i just want to make sure that she stays hydrated with only taking two actual bottles. she doesnt drink much out of her sippy cup but does drink a little..def nothing like the way my first one ate..

That is way, way, way too many solids at her age. Technically at 5 months they shouldn't even be eating any solids yet... A small amount of solids ONCE a day is OK, but all of the rest of her calories need to be coming from her formula right now.
