Feeding Routines Lock Rss

my daughter is 6 1/2 months old and has just been on one solid feed a day i was wondering if when do i go to two and three feeds of solids a day and do i still continue the same milk intake. Please help
Solids have not changed my DD's milk intake at all. Every-one seems to have different timing for when they give solids. Maybe you have to try a few different ways and see what suits your DD.

At the moment my DD has a BF in the morning, play, solids (2 cubes of pear and 1 cube of apple), BF (top-up) and off to bed. I know its time for solids when she gets a bit grumpy.

In the evening she does the same thing, BF, play, solids (2 cubes of carrot and 2 cubes of pumpkin with a spoon of rice cereal mixed in), play, shower, BF (usually a big one) and off to bed.

I started dinner within two week of starting solids at breakfast time. Best of luck !!!

DD is 3yr 8 months - DS is 6 months

Hello Tunk

My daughter is also 6.5 months and has been on solids for 3 weeks. For the first week she was on only one solid meal (morning). ie . she had her first breastfeed at 6.30ish then she'd sleep till 8am, pram ride to a cafe then her rice cereal at 8.30ish.

The second week i introduced her dinner meal. She would have 1 or 2 tabs of pureed vege (began with potato for a couple of days, then potato/pumpkin, then carrot, then pumpkin/broccoli) During the second week i also introduced pureed fruit to her breakfast rice cereal (about 1 tab of pureed pear, apricot, or banana).

The third week i introduced her lunch meal which was a couple of tabs of natural yoghurt with 1 tab of pureed apricot/ pear/ apple or banana.

I haven't dropped any breastfeeds yet. I've been told that my daughter will decide for herself when she will drop a feed (which mihgt happen maybe in the 7th month or soon after) and will probably coincide with when the size of the meals increase.

hope this is helpful.
