I have let Troy be my guide as to how much food to give. Once I did all the stage 1's for 3 days each--I started with 1/2 jar and if no reaction, I gave as much as he would take. Now that he is through all of them, I give him as much as he wants. Here is how we have been doing things (although this has been a horrible week--he only wants to be BF for some reason)--the times vary depending on waking and napping, but this is a general idea:
6:00am (or whenever he wakes)--BF
8:00--cereal and fruit
9:00--BF
12:00--veggie and fruit
1:00--BF
4:00--BF (maybe depending on how he's doing)
5:00--cereal, veggie, fruit
7:30--BF
The amounts vary depending on him--he was eating 1 stage1 jar of fruit in the am, a whole jar of each at lunch and dinner. Cereal is about 2 T. in the am and 1/4 C. at night. It was going great for awhile, but for some reason has been balking at the solids this week???

I was trying to BF him after doing the solids, but he wasn't hungry enough to do much, so I had to adjust. Unfortunately, BF has been coming right at naptime so that's been a challenge as well! I don't think there is a definite right way--whatever works for you and your baby!
