Seth is 5 months old. Right now he gets breakfast - 2-3 T of oatmeal cereal with half a stage 1 container of fruit (sometimes he eats the entire container). Then he eats an entire stage 1 container of veggies for dinner. He gets breastmilk about every 3.5-4 hours in the mornings and evenings, but during the middle of the day he acts like he's starving and I've been nursing him every 2-2.5 hours recently and sometimes as often as every hour. He never seems to eat a whole lot at these feedings, but I'm wondering if he's wanting more? I was thinking I'd start offering lunch around 6 months, but I'm thinking he's ready now. If I knew how much breastmilk he was drinking this would be easier, but I have no clue. All I know is it's just not seeming like it's staisfying him during the middle of the day. What do you think? Is he too young for 3 meals a day? He's a big boy...he's probably around 19 pounds right now.
i would think if he's really taken to his baby food well and he seems to be starving like that ...he is ready for more solid food by now! i say go for it! at 5 mos ..my oldest was full on with solids for 3 meals per day and of course her formula too!
Preston is 5 1/2 months and we started him out on rice cereal (4 1/2 months-5 months)then we started giving him mixed cereal (5 months-present). I plan on making my own baby food and when he is 7 months we are going to start giving him veggies. After ALL the veggies we are going to give him fruits. We will start giving him juice at 6 months though. We are going to give him 1 cup for juice and 1 cup for milk to get him off the bottle by one.
