Making sure your bub gets all the right nutrients and amounts can be frustrating and worrying, I agree.
My little man is almost one. He has breakky at around 7:30 (cereal) then a breast feed around half hour later.
He will sometimes, but not always have a mid morning snack. Some of the snacks he likes are, yoghurt, cheese, corn cakes or rice cakes with vegemite, cruskits with cream cheese or cottage cheese, toast, pieces of pear, banana or watermelon, dried apple, prunes or apricot (didn't offer these until recently and I made them in to smaller pieces, bit worried about choking). The odd finger food he likes that I thought "there's no way he will eat this, but I'll give it a go" was different tins of the bean family like cannelini beans, kidney beans, butter beans and even enjoyed the tinned lentils, which were hard for him to pick up off the high chair tray but good for his fine motor I guess. Strange what they like and dislike.
He also went through a no vege stage until I started adding some fuit to the vege. Sounds gross I know but he loved it. A bit of pear and a bit of formula mixed in with the vege was his favorite.
My clinic nurse said to offer solids first then follow after with a bottle/breast but I always found he fed better if I waited a half hour or just when he was ready for sleep.
All the stuff I have read and nurse recommend that babies 6-12 months need 600-700mls of milk a day.
Anyway, I've waffled on a lot but I hope this has helped.
