Hi,

Right now my son who is 9 mos is getting 3 8 oz bottles a day. I give him one first thing is the morning at about 6:30am then he goes back to bed for two hours. At about 10:30am he takes another full bottle and cereal. At 2:30pm he gets a couple of jars of fruit or I offer him some pieces of banana or some pear of peaches from a fruit cup.
At around 5:30pm I give him his supper usually a stage 2 jar of the meat/pasta/veg mix. And right before bed at 7:30 he has another bottle and some cereal.
My grandmother says I'm doing it all wrong!! She says he should be having three meals a day with snacks in between and that I should try to hold off till 7am to give him cereal instead of a bottle and then a snack at 10:30, lunch at 12:30 (meat/pasta/veg), then a snack at 3:30, then supper at 5:30 (meat/pasta/veg) and fruit for desert then a bottle and ceral before bed.

What is everyone else doing at this age for feeding?? I'm beginning to think she is right but
isn't he still young to be on such a rigid schedule?
