Okay, I have another question bloggy friends. I was talking to some wonderful mothers yesterday about how their docs told them to schedule their babies solid foods. It was a little different than what my doc told me, but it sounded much better, so I have transitioned more to their way.
Here is our schedule so far
8 am: 7 oz formula bottle
11 am: cereal mixed with fruit and a veggie as well.
2-3 pm: cereal mixed with veggie and fruit
6-7 pm: veggie and cereal
9 pm: 7-8 ounce bottle
He also gets puffs/yogurt melts/real fruit after some feedings to snack
The problem is Caleb is not wanting to take in very much formula anymore. I know babies start to slow down on their formula intake, but I have also heard they need 32 ounces until they are 9 months. Caleb is maybe taking in 25 ounces a day. I always offer him a 3 ounce bottle after each feeding, and it usually takes him an hour to finish that. Is it okay that he is not wanting formula anymore? What was your experience with this subject?
Note: I just began giving him both a veg and fruit per feeding yesterday. He was still not wanting formula when I only offered him one solid per feeding.
