    can you please post the feeding routines that your babies have? (include age too as for some reason no tickers on this section of forum)

    for example

    amelie 21 weeks old

    7-8 milk (usually 3 oz )
    (small breakfast -we introducing that one this week and it will be fruit)

    11- milk (she usually barely takes 2 oz )

    12- lunch, vegetables

    3-4 milk

    6- milk and dinner (usually baby rice with fruits and it will be a protein meal after 6 m though)

    10- milk top up (probably cutting that one when she is eating 3 proper solid meals)

    i could probably do lets milk feeds as she only milk snacks...but that dosent work with my baby :( feed her every 6 hours and she will still get maybe 4 oz instead of 3 :wall:


    so how are you timing your milk and solids?

    Nap
    11.30: 7 oz bottle
    1.00: pureed veg
    Nap
    2.30: 7 oz bottle
    5.00: 7 oz bottle
    6.00: pureed veg at the dinner table when we have tea
    7.30:7 oz bottle

    He generally has another nap at some point in the afternoon too. Some days he only has 4 x 7 oz bottles depending on naps, being out etc (and mummy not flapping that he must eat every 3 hours without fail :shock:) He may also leave an oz or two of an odd bottle

    LO is 18.5 weeks & I'm worried he's having too much but takes it all!

    07:30 x7oz bottle
    09:30 baby porridge
    11:30 x 7oz bottle
    14.30 x 7oz bottle
    17.00 baby rusk mixed with boiled water
    19.45 x 7oz
    23.00 x7oz

    I think I might reduce the feeds after first bottle to 6oz he seems to be having too much ?!
    Have made batches of purée vegetables ready to introduce more tastes at 20 weeks xxx

    Sunbeam where did you find rusks with no gluten? Though probably pointless as we will not have them here I suppose.
    I was more interesting in a finger food though not mixing it with anything.
    Me thinks I will buy some rice cakes for that purpose.
    I am amazed and jealous of how much all of your babies eat!!!!!

    Harry loves rice cakes, biscotti biscuits and organix carrot stix which Amelie probably can't have just yet. Although here u can get different flavoured rice rices (apple and banana ones we have) so hopefully u can get Amelie interested in those xx

    I looked at the supermarket today for rice cakes! I didn't find a single brand with no salt!!! :(
    No rice cakes for her I suppose. There are empty calories anyway but I just wanted her to practice finger foods like that.

    Sunbeam the effects of gluten allergy are not immediate, it can be years and years later. I personally think you should wait a little with the rusk if it has gluten and give more vegetables and fruits and baby rice or baby porridge without gluten.
    Though obviously lots of us we have been weaned with gluten at 3 m and we turned up fine so I suppose there are all chances to be ok just personally I think it's not a risk that I am willing to take as coeliac disease is really awful.
    (Only personal opinion obviously I would never tell an other mum how to parent :roll:)

    Yes i know about the risks it's ok Hope, I do my research and for us both oh & i arent worried and I don't want to debate this with anyone either if thats ok xx All his vegetables are home puréed & his baby rice is organic so with regards to the gluten allergy its not something that worries me as we have no family history of it and its avoid but a guide. If anything rusks aren't a daily dish because they are very sweet and I don't want him to expect it all the time. :) xx
