: Here I am with another question.... I am not sure if I am feeding Brayden enough. I started solid foods about 4.5 months. I fed him cereal in the am for about 2 weeks until I introduced sweet potatoes to him. Now he eats in the am and pm. I was giving him about a teaspoon and a half but he wanted more. We jumped right to a tablespoon and now he eats a tablespoon plus some. He doesn't like his bottle anymore when he expects food. It's a hassle to give him 3 oz (which I get him to eat before the solid foods). He usually eats 6 oz. of formula 3 times a day and, 3 oz of formula 2 times a day with the solids. (24 oz of formula day) He wants to eat more solid food but I stop at about a tablespoon and a half b/c I think it might be too much. What does everyone else feed their babies?
: Thanks for your help everyone!!
Thomas eats 2 times a day, up to 2 oz depending on how much he is liking what it is. He will drink 4-6 oz first and then about 1/2 hour later we do cereal or fruit. He love bananas, oat cereal, pears and sweet potatoes. A Tbs. of food is hardly any solids. I read somewhere that by 6 months they should get solids then be offered the bottle.
