    Currently Jake has

    7am- Bottle formula 6-9oz
    9- Baby porrige and 5oz baby juice
    1pm- Bottle formula 6-9oz
    4pm Bottle formula 6-9oz
    6-7pm- pureed veg and Baby juice or water
    8pm- Bottle formula 6-9oz

    (9 times out of 10 he doesnt drink his whole bottle)

    When he begins nursery next week they will be giving him lunch so Im thinking about doing this myself to make his weekends consistant with meals in the week. Im also thinking about stepping up to follow on milk as he is 6 months old next week( :shock: ). Should I replace the lunch time feed with lunch and the follow on formula for a week or so berore replacing one more or the rest? I dont like the idea of changing them all at once.

    when i changed willow on to follow on milk it gave her an upset tummy for a few days but she is fine with it now so i would try changing it a bit before he starts nursary. although you dont have to put him on to follow on milk i didnt put willow on to it until she was 8 months and i only did it then because it was cheaper.

    I asked the HV about follow on milk as I found it all a bit confusing but she said as C was satisfied with the normal milk and was gaining weight, not to change her. C has breakfast and lunch at the moment, but I will introduce dinner next week I think - she will be 6 months 3 weeks then.

    hi, grace has just started 3 meals a day and will be going onto 6 mths + milk this week. her routine is:

    6am 180ml bottle then back to bed
    8:30am breakfast
    10:30am 150ml bottle then nap
    12:30pm lunch
    3pm 150ml bottle then nap
    5pm tea
    7:30pm 210ml bottle

    snacks and finger food are now gradally being introduced. she does not really eat the finger food but enjoys sucking and playing with them.
    feel all i do is feed though. i found with mark the mid morn and mid afternoon gradually gets less and is then replaced with snacks.
