McKinley is BF but because she has pumped milk in a bottle during the day, I have a rough idea of how much she eats in 24 hours. She has 4-5oz every 3 hours during the day and then sleeps all night. So about 24-30oz in 24 hours.

We are waiting to start solids until 6 months. I will be honest, I have let her lick some very mild things of my finger before and she was not a fan...so even if I was ready, I know she isn't.

We will probably start with some homemade puréed squash or sweet potatoes first. Or maybe avocado. I can't decide!

Eli eats 5 oz every three hrs when he is awake.
We are waiting until 5-6 months to give him solids regularly, but he has had a few tastes and did really well with it.

Ellianna is 4 1/2 months old. While I am at work she takes about 18-20 ounces of breastmilk She then nurses an additional 3-4 times per day on average. On weekends she just nurses on demand and I have no idea. In addition, Grammy gives her 1-2 bowls of cereal a day (I generally just nurse).

Food - Grammy gives rice cereal and she seems to love it. I tend to just nurse and no complaints

I think that I will start some foods between 5 and 6 months. Probably start sweet potatoes first. I have the Baby Beaba to make my own food.

I am looking for someone to tell me that my daughter is not a chow hound Thinking about it - she probably drinks about 35 ounces of bm per day when you count bottles of breastmilk and nursing She is only 14 1/2 pounds though so not a real chubbers for a girl her length (6-9 month pants a necessity for length).

EBF here, so I really have no idea how much he eats, but he's definitely getting plenty (as evidenced by his 19lb weight at 4 months).
We won't introduce any solids until 6 months, but we will be doing BLW.
I haven't decided yet what his first food will be but he is definitely wanting it bad already.

We're still EBF on demand, probably every 3-4 hours maybe? She sleeps 12 hours at night, so she eats her way on and off through the morning usually.

We'll do BLW and give her some foods to try right at 6m. We'll start with avocado, banana, and sweet potatoes.

Leif takes 6oz every 4-5 hrs. Typically 24oz a day.

We have given him rice cereal but it's in his bottle.

Plan to start solids hopefully at 6 months but he still has a strong tongue thrust so I'm not too sure when he will be ready.

Zack is still EBF on demand. He goes about every 3/4 hours and gets up once a night still. So I have no idea how much he is really getting.
I don't plan to start solids till after the new year which would make him 6 months. I may push it back even longer.
First food will be bananas and sweet potatoes.

We tried giving Morgan some thin rice cereal on a spoon on Halloween (she had just turned 5 months). I don't plan on feeding her solids regularly until she's 6 months old but I wanted to see how she'd do with it. She definitely needs some practice, so I'll probably give her a small amount every few days so she can start to figure the whole eating real food out.

Hailey is EBF and eats on demand..somedays its 1-2 hours others it's 2-3 hrs. at night she usually goes a 3-4 hr stretch but cluster feeds from 4am-6/7am. during the day she just eats for short periods, maybe 5-10 minutes at a time. during the night are her longer feeds at 10-20 minutes.

we will be starting solids at 6 months, so right around Christmas time. i plan to introduce apples or bananas first for fruits and probably sweet potatoes first for veggies
