Feeding routine for a 8 month old..suggestions? Lock Rss

my son is nearly 8 months old and i am having alot of trouble getting him to drink any milk now that he is on solids. Just wondering how much formula other 8 month olds have in a day and how to space it out to ensure he is getting enough. At the moment i am trying to give him 4 milk feeds of 200ml. One at 7, one at 11, one at 3 and then 1 at 6 and food is inbetween these times 2-3 times a day. He never wants to drink the milk at all and probably getting 100-150ml in at these times after 30-40minutes of struggling.
When do you offer him milk? Is it too close to having solid food possibly?
We have a 8month little girl & she has 4-5 bottles of 150ml a day also 3 solid food.
Ever since she was 6months old I was told to offer food first milk 2nd - so now we give her food first, playtime & then has milk before going to sleep.
I would recommend just trying to space out the time inbetween food & milk it might be he is stil full from the food.
Anyway hope he settles down for you soon smile
