    so i can compare to "average", please tell me roughly what times ur 6-month old has milk (if bottles, also state how many mls) and solids, and typically what solids they will have.
    thanx in advance

    millie has:
    7am - breast-feed
    8.30 - baby porridge
    12.30 - jar of baby-food, usually something fruity
    3pm - bottle-feed 100mls (just started this today!)
    5pm - 2 ice-cubes of my mum's home-made soup mixed with a little baby rice
    6.30pm - milk (usually breast-feed but might try bottle again 2nite)
    1am - breast-feed

    This is Poppy's current feeding routine:-

    9am - bottlefeed - 170mls
    10am - Breakfast (porridge or weetabix with fruit puree) + water
    1pm - bottlefeed - 170 mls
    4:30pm - bottlefeed - 170mls
    5:30pm - Dinner (3/4 jar) + juice
    8pm - bottlefeed - 190mls

    Plus she has about 60mls of bottle during the night, but hoping to swap it to water soon and hoping that she will stop once in own room.

    Also I would give her lunch aswell but my hv told me not to as she is overweight.

    I'm not sure whether I'm giving her too much milk, I'm finding it all confusing.

    I know Matilda is a couple of weeks older but this is what she has:

    7.30-8am 61/2 oz bottle
    9-10am either 1 weetabix mixed with 90ml of formula or baby rice mixed with formula, mixed with fresh fruit
    12.30-1pm - sweet potato (normally 4 ice cube thingys)mixed with fruit or veg, or soup, if still hungry also a youghurt
    4-5pm - a baby cream thing that you get out here, bit like custard
    7-8pm - 61/2 oz bottle formula

    I give her water with all her meals and try her with it on and off during day.

    have this week tried her with a 'meat' soup as she wont eat chicken
