1. How often do you feed baby solids? Once or twice a day. Usually she will get something new at breakfast so I have plenty of time to make sure she doesn't have a reaction to it. We may be dealing with some food allergies or intollerance here.

2. How much does baby eat each time? half a container washed down with some breast milk.

3. Are you making your own or buying the jars/containers? buying. ain't nobody got time for that extra cooking in this house. lol

4. Is you baby picky and only eats certain foods? Which ones? It took a few tries, but she tolerates apples. Absolutely hates peaches.

5. Do you feed your baby anything other than baby food? I have let her suck on an Edy's Outshine Coconut water and Banana popsicle and she LOVED LOVED LOVED it! I didn't give her too much, it has added sugar in it but it's all frozen fruit puree. I think coconut is her favorite flavor yet.

6. Have you given your baby any finger foods? Is so, what? Not yet... I don't think I will until she can sit unassisted. I don't know if sh is ready yet. Also she may have FPIES so I am wary of wheat and corn

7. Does your baby drink anything other than formula/breast milk? I gave her a few sips of apple juice in her sippy cup but she really does not like it.

8. Do you have a solids schedule for baby? Yes I will give her solids for breakfast and lunch.

have you givin baby any finger foods? If so, what? I have tried but anything hard/not pureed makes him gag until he throws up. every time.

does your baby drink anything other then formula/breast milk? If he is constipated we will do a little watery juice. He has used a sippy cup with water, but no milk or juice regualrly. Not even water regularly.

do you have a solids schedule for baby? Usually breakfast is around 11, then lunch at 2, then dinner at 6. It varies though.
