LOL definitely read this as "for those eating babies..." COLD MEDICINE. OOF.

He eats 6.5oz when he wakes up, 6.5oz + 1TBSP of barley or oatmeal for "breakfast", 6.5oz + 1.5-2oz of fruit or veggie for "lunch", 6.5 oz + 1TBSP of barley or oatmeal for "dinner" then 6.5oz for his bedtime bot. So, 32.5oz still, but she said it would take 2-3 weeks before I started seeing a drop off in formula intake.

Thanks!

Raini has had cereal before and hates it. Ive thickened it, thinned it the whole bit but she wont take it unless its in a bottle. (my bad!)

So I started her on carrots yesterday and she ate those up off the spoon just fine. I tried a bit of cereal this morning and she still refuses it.

Ped says I can mix it with fruits to get her to eat it, but does she really have to have cereal?

She does not have to have cereal, but you have to watch her iron intake. If you bottle feed, you should be ok, I think formula contains more iron than breast milk after 6 months of age. I am also going by memory on this one. I hope other girls can back me up.

I agree, many people just skip cereal. The only reason I went with it was because Pax was starving and I needed a benign filler. If she's formula fed, you are most definitely covering all of her nutritional bases - I'd just go for fruits/veggies from now on if she has repeatedly refused cereal. I know sometimes it may take them a little while to get used to/acquire a taste for something, but if she's shunning it consistently, I'd just move on to the next thing!

I just started Zoey on sweet potatoes this week. I just boiled some, mashed them and froze them 1 oz each. She has 1 at dinner time and that's all she has gotten so far.

Layne just nurses on demand. It basically rounds out to every 2 to 3 hours. However, I try to feed him "lunch" around my lunch time. He gets either a fruit or veggie (sweet potatoes gave him bad diarrhea so gonna hold off on that for a while) around lunch, and 1 tbsp of oatmeal for "dinner" around 6 at night. I try to hold off on that until the hubby gets home so that he can feed him. He gets upset if he can't. He seems to be doing really good on this and isn't cluster feeding all day like he used to.
