Whenever we introduce a new food, it's in the morning. The first couple weeks his schedule was:
-wake up to bottle,
-eat a pureed food about two hours later,
-bottles as normal the rest of the day.

Then we added another meal in the afternoon, and at this point his schedule is:
-wake up to bottle (abt 7am at this point)
-pureed foods at 9am-ish (two or three kinds) + a couple ounces of formula
-bottles as needed during day
-pureed foods at 4pm-ish (two or three kinds) + a couple ounces of formula
-bottle in evening, another at bedtime

He gets a total of 4 to 5 tablespoons of pureed food throughout the day. I make his purees, including: lamb, buffalo, liver, avocado, banana, apple, pear, carrot, sweet potato, and beets.

He's almost seven months, and I'll probably leave him at two meals for a while. Instead of adding amount of food, now that he's getting two meals I'm going to focus on increasing his variety, and then introduce a third meal at about nine months.

Another thing I recently added were one of those mesh suck things. I'll put a banana or softened pear in there while I'm prepping his food if he's hungry. I put an out-turned prune in there the other day for him to suck on and it was so much more efficient than prune juice for his constipation!
