What does your baby's day look like when it comes to eating? Just curious to see where everyone is at!Lilah's day is like this:
3am - 5oz bottle
7am - 5oz bottle
8:15am - Oatmeal or oatmeal mixed with fruit - 2oz of fruit, a few tbsp of oatmeal.
11am - 5oz bottle
12:30pm - Yogurt
2:30pm - 5oz bottle
4:30 or 5pm - fruit mixed with oatmeal, or sweet potato
7pm - 5oz bottle (bedtime).
She still gets a lot of bottles - 25oz or so of breast milk a day. She LOVES her bottles. I don't remember my other two loving them quite this much!
7am- 6 oz of whole milk
9am- 2 blueberry eggos -or- 2 scrambled eggs
12noon- 3-4 dino chicken nuggets, cup of diced peaches-or- bean and cheese burrito.
3pm- 6oz whole milk
5pm- jar of Gerber stage 3 dinner, 2/3 cup of yogurt
7pm- 6 oz whole milk
He also drinks about 12-16oz of water throughout the day. I keep his water bottle full and out on the ground with him so he drinks that whenever he wants. He LOVES water.
we don't have a schedule, he breastfeeds on demand and eats whatever we eat. he eats a ton, he looooooves food. spaghetti and blueberries are his faves but really the kid will eat anything you put in front of him.
Rebecca (11/22/07), Nathan (7/31/10), and Thomas (5/3/13)
Carter eats everything! He gets formula/milk in a sippy during the day. He eats 3 meals a day. If he isn't eating real food when we are, he will pitch a fit until you share. =) he gets a bottle at bedtime and one in the middle of the night when he wakes. Total, he has about 30 oz of half whole milk/ half formula in 24 hours.
9 am - Breakfast (served with sippy cup of milk):
-Toast with peanut butter, pancake, waffle with butter, or some kind of bread
-Scrambled egg with cheese or small pieces of cheese
-1/2 fruit pouch or a banana/avocado mash or 2 oz homemade fruit/yogurt smoothie
-2-4 oz plain yogurt
She naps around 11 am - I offer her more milk in her sippy but she hardly wants any.
1 pm - Lunch (also served with sippy of milk):
-Whole wheat bread pieces with 1 tbsp hummus for dipping (or peanut butter if she didn't have that for breakfast)
-Cheese pieces or shredded cheese
-Some kind of vegetable -either a homemade one (pureed or diced) or part of a pouch
-Fruit - applesauce or pouch
3:30 pm - Snack (served with sippy cup of milk or water)
-2 Club crackers with peanut butter
-Fruit or yogurt
She naps again around 4:30 pm.
6:15 pm - Dinner (served with sippy cup of milk):
-usually similar to lunch, and I try to add meat from our dinner if appropriate.
I will occasionally use a Stage 2 meat and vegetable jar to supplement.
Bedtime at 7:30 pm and she now sleeps until 8:15 am straight!! Heaven!!

7 am: wakes up
7-9:30: drinks two(ish) bottles, no solids
9:30-11 (varies widely): nap 1
11:30: some kind of cereal (multigrain, cream of buckwheat, mighty oats flavored cereal) mixed with milk (usually takes some coaxing), some cheerios/puffs for the fun of it
12-1:30: 5-10 oz of milk, random foods (anything i might eat, fruit)
1:30-2:15 (again, varies some): nap
2:30: 3-5 oz of milk, chicken-veggie soup/chunks of chicken/eggs/broccoli
and the rest of the day is just trying to get him to finish something we made earlier, giving him bottles, more fruits, or whatever else is around. He occasionally takes a nap early evening, but we try to discourage this because he's more likely to wake up at night.Sleeps from 8:30 pm - 6 am for the first waking, then 6:30-7 for the day.We really don't have much of a feeding schedule established, since he's pretty picky. He'll eat small bites of stuff, but it's very rare he really likes anything.
This is an average as everyday is different:
5:00-6:00 AM wake up
6:30-7:00 AM breakfast
11:00-11:30 AM Lunch
1:30-2:00 9oz bottle
