Hi ladies, I am very curious about what your babies are eating at this stage. After having had a boy that never was into solids too much until after 1 year of age, this baby now is an eater. He wants to eat everything and LOTS so I even feel I have to limit that sometimes.
Here is what he’d eat during an average weekday, times vary but all in all this is realistic:
12 oz breastmilk during the day (estimated)
9 am : oatmeal and breastmilk mixed in
4 oz fruit or veggie blends
12 noon: one 6oz jar, one 4 oz jar fruit or veggie. Juice for hydration
3 or 4 pm : a good long nursing session with everything built up during my time at work. Then fruitpuffs, banana pieces or something snacky like that
6 pm: avocado with a little dressing or mashed banana or some other mashed fruit/vegetable. Then table food if he likes (soft bread pieces, pasta, rice, potato…anything soft, non spicy, non-meaty, non-seasoned).
Then nursing in the evenings and during the night on demand till morning.
I wonder about how much “taste” babyfood can have at this time i.e. spices/salt. I am concerned about foods that naturally are seasoned or contain salt like cheese for instance or soup we eat. Do you give your babies those things, yet? Yuma eats many of the vegetable stuff with a small amount of salad dressing, that’s all so far. How about your babes?
