Feeding Time for Baby - Questions!
 
Now that are babies are a little older, feeding time can be a trying time when it doesn't involve formula and breast milk! Although, our babies are still getting most of their nutrients from their milk, they are eating food now too; so that's where things can either be frustrating or maybe things are great with that, lol.

Do you feed your baby at specific times each day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner?)

Where does baby eat? (high chair, seat, at table, in lap, etc)

How much solid food does baby usually eat during one meal time?

Does baby eat the same meals you fix for the family?

What are some of your baby's favorite foods?

Do you offer drinks with each feeding?

Do you let baby feed themselves?

Are there some foods you feed baby without letting them feed themselves?

Any tips/tricks to make cleanup easier?

Do you feed your baby at specific times each day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner?) yep, breakfast, lunch and dinner

Where does baby eat? (high chair, seat, at table, in lap, etc) - in his high chair or a high chair, or on my lap if out.

How much solid food does baby usually eat during one meal time? he has eaten a whole slice of pizza, but usually a couple of ounces of food.

Does baby eat the same meals you fix for the family? usually yes

What are some of your baby's favorite foods? peanut butter and jelly toast, cream cheese toast, pizza, hot dogs, mac n cheese. he isn't picky yet. he LOVES watermellon

Do you offer drinks with each feeding? yeah, usually watered down juice or milk

Do you let baby feed themselves? yes

Are there some foods you feed baby without letting them feed themselves? cream of wheat - just too much like glue to get everywhere. I also hold the pizza for him while he bites it.

Any tips/tricks to make cleanup easier? dogs. dogs take care of all the stuff that lands on the floor or in the chair.

Lol Ami! The dogs tip is too funny but so true!


Do you feed your baby at specific times each day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner?) I try but it doesn't always work out that way!

Where does baby eat? (high chair, seat, at table, in lap, etc) Mostly in her high chair, but often in my lap.

How much solid food does baby usually eat during one meal time?
To estimate I would say about 4-6 oz. That is just a rough estimate and varies greatly!

Does baby eat the same meals you fix for the family? Yes

What are some of your baby's favorite foods? Spaghetti, pasta, noodles

Do you offer drinks with each feeding? Yes, usually juice (watered down) or water

Do you let baby feed themselves? Yes

Are there some foods you feed baby without letting them feed themselves? Yes, I often feed her dinner because I have found that she will eat more if I feed her and play more if she feeds herself. I usually feed her spaghetti, but I also let her feed herself spaghetti sometimes.

Any tips/tricks to make cleanup easier? Well, I have a rubber Sesame Street mat that I put under her high chair, it's easy to spray it off in the shower after she eats!

Do you feed your baby at specific times each day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner?) just about yes. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and bed (oatmeal and
Bottle only) his meals are usually a little earlier than ours so he gets snacks when we eat too lol

Where does baby eat? (high chair, seat, at table, in lap, etc) highchair or bumbo seat

How much solid food does baby usually eat during one meal time? Anywhere between 2 and 6 ounces.

Does baby eat the same meals you fix for the family? He picks off of our meals but he usually gets purees with his. I think I am behind here. I have been so afraid of him choking and havent let him experiment with many foods until recently.

What are some of your baby's favorite foods? He loves squash, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, bananas, ice cream ( i know - bad) he hates the consistency of watermelon and gags on it lol

Do you offer drinks with each feeding? At his meals he gets his bottle right after he eats his purees. When he snacks on our food usually water or watered down apple juice

Do you let baby feed themselves? A little bit but not enough. Probably behind here too

Are there some foods you feed baby without letting them feed themselves? Most his purees lol. Mac and cheese.

Any tips/tricks to make cleanup easier? I agree with Ami - dogs! Lol we were at my future in laws and they dont have one and i felt lost. Haha. Terrible i know

Do you feed your baby at specific times each day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner?) Yes, usually. We often also offer puffs (fruit) and/or banana dissolvable cookies for snacks in b/t

Where does baby eat? (high chair, seat, at table, in lap, etc). Mostly in his high chair but, sometimes on Mommy's lap.

How much solid food does baby usually eat during one meal time? Depends. If it's jarred (1.5-2) - fruit and veggie for dinner; fruit/formula for lunch; cereal w/ just H20 for breakfast

Does baby eat the same meals you fix for the family? No, Liam has a super strong gag-reflux, which my other children didn't have. We try dif things (mashed pot, mashed veggies, etc.) and he always chokes.

What are some of your baby's favorite foods? sweet pot, squash, greens

Do you offer drinks with each feeding? We will do a bottle shortly after but, I offer water in his sippy throughout the day - he usually just plays with the cup.

Do you let baby feed themselves? Only his snacks. I do allow him to play with his spoon and bowl though (w/ no content) - appears to have the hang of it so, maybe I'll try some thicker oatmeal so it doesn't fall off b/f he gets the spoon to his mouth.

Are there some foods you feed baby without letting them feed themselves? Almost all of it.

Any tips/tricks to make cleanup easier? I like Amy's idea. Most of it hits the floor and we just end up picking it up along with our 3 y.o.'s mess. We also keep wipes ready and waiting b/c Liam is bound to swat at us a time or two (he thinks it's funny)!.

Do you offer drinks with each feeding? I have his sippy with water near by and give him little sips during meals (he sometimes just throws up in middle of eating usually with a burp so the water helps push it down). he also has sips of drinks to once in awhile
