: Ok, It's been 3 1/2 years since I had a baby! My DD is now 5 months old. Her dr okayed baby food and ceral already. We have done all of the stage 1 foods and are now progressing into stage 2 (mainly at dinner). My question she normally eats a bottle (6oz when she wakes up), a stage 1 jar of fruit and a bowl of ceral at her next feeding (usually around 10-11 am) a bottle every 3 - 3 1/2 hours until dinner where she will eat a stage 2 jar of either veggie or chicken& rice dinner or something similar and a 6oz bottle. Is this an ok feeding schedule??? I can't for the life of me remember how I did with my first DD. Please advise! Thanks in advance!!

That sounds like a great feeding schedule for a 5 month old. But a little warning - babies suddenly will decide that they are bored of their eating schedule and start becoming picky eaters. I go through terrible eating phases with my 10 month old DS. Yours may do just fine, but some babies have periods of eating strikes.
