Those of you who are feeding solids, how often are your LOs getting them? And what time of day? Has it helped them sleep better at night?

solids have made no difference on Lincoln's sleep schedule.

I usually only give some food at dinner time, once in a while lunch. once he is 6 months I'll start some yogurt and then give him either lunch or breakfast daily in addition to dinner.

Mason gets just a little baby cereal before bed. I dont think it helps much with his sleeping but could be wrong

Micah gets a few spoonfuls of fruit or veggies at dinner time. I also tried her with a piece of toast today and she loved it . I started her on solids a few weeks ago but it hasn't made any difference to her sleep schedule yet. She still wakes up to be fed 2-3 times in the night.

Matthew gets 1 baby bullet jar (2oz) twice a day. Around 10-11 am then between 6-8pm. He loves it and eats it all lol

As for sleep hes been sleeping through the night since he was a couple weeks old. For his 3rd monthhe wwasn't fully satisfied with just nursing and was eating constantly! After I started solids with him he went back to normal again and is 'fuller' now

Kyah gets baby food once a day. She was taking about an ounce, now she is taking about 2 ounces. It has no effect on her sleeping schedule. She opens her mouth wide for every bite and screams her head off when it is gone!! I mean she has a huge fit every single time the food is gone.

Elliott just ate 8 ounces of bananas yesterday. I wanted to see if he knew it was actual food since he normally would eat 4 ounces then drink a 6 oz bottle right after. He seemed full after 8 ounces of baby food (2 gerber jars).

He didn't like first foods that much and seems to like 2nd foods more. I give it to him once in a while, maybe for a lunch or something every couple days.

you want to make sure you offer the food after a bottle or nursing. Breastmilk or formula should be the primary source of nutrition for the first year.

8 ounces of baby food in one sitting seems like way too much for a less then 6 month old.

Every mom has their own way of doing things. I am not going to fret over it, it was a one time thing and I have not completely replaced all of his meals with it. It had probably been 3 or 4 days since the last time he had had baby food and I know eating it this one time is not going to damage him any. Like I had said, I had wanted to see if he responded to it like he does with his bottle. Quite often, he will drink 8-10 oz.

Just make sure you offer a bottle first then food, I don't think there is any pediatrician in the country that would say otherwise.

When I discussed baby food with with ped, he did say to give him as much as he wanted. He did not mention which order it needed to be in. He is full after his bottle so I do not know why I woud try to make him eat baby food after that.

I dunno, I am not worried and not going to discuss it further. I appreciate the advice and you looking out for Elliott. :-)

I also feed solids first and then offer him the breast. He would never show interest in/eat solids if he has filled up on nursing. And he did need something extra...I was trying to hold off on solids until six months but after nursing almost hourly for a few weeks I gave in and started some baby food. He still nurses at least every 2-3 hours in spite of eating solids twice a day so I'm not worried that he's not getting enough breastmilk.
