I was wondering where people were at with feeding solids. Tegan takes 2 cubes in the morning and 2 cubes at dinner. But, she is stating to seem like she wants more, so I think we will increase that soon. Are other babies up to 3 meals a day? and how much at each sitting?

We haven't started solids yet. Two cubes I think is a bit less than what is in a stage 1 jar so she should be fine with adding a third meal or adding a 3rd cube to her other meals.

Abby eats a jar for breakfast and a jar for dinner. Sometimes she wants 2oz, sometimes 4oz. If she ate plenty of formula that day, I let her have a 4oz for dinner.

Elise is on and off, I offer her food every evening sometimes she takes two bites and is done and others she eats everything I got her and have to get more.
I normally start with an ounce of food mixed with about a tablespoon of cereal and an ounce or two of BM. My girl is a VERY picky eater

We aren't on an exact schedule, but do feed her 3x some days depending on her schedule. For breakfast, usually whole grain oatmeal and fruit... lunch a veggie or fruit... dinner a veggie. Usually about 2 ounces.

Xander gets cereal and half a fruit in the AM and Cereal and half a veggie in the pm.

The cereal might be a teaspoon or 2 not alot. Combined might equal a tablespoon.

I was feeding him once a day iwth something different, but he got this white bump rash. I stopped giving him food for about a week to see if it cleared up. So far the rash on his leg has started to go away and the stomach is better. We go to his 6 month today. Hopefully, she can tell me something, because i think he wants to eat. I am afraid he is having a reaction to all food though.

Bella usually has cereal and fruit for breakfast along with a bottle, then veggies and a bottle for lunch, another bottle around 4ish and then more veggies around 6 to hold her over until her bedtime bottle. It seems to work for her and some days it gets a little mixed around here and there. Just stick with your gut feeling, you know best for your little one!!
