Just that really! Interested to hear the usual times you feed your 5-6 month old babies and if they are bottle fed the amounts?

And also - do they have 3 naps or 2 ??

6 months this week.
7oz 7am
Breakfast (porridge) 8am
7oz 11am
Lunch 1200
Tea 1500
7oz 1600
7oz 1830
6oz 11pm

I'd say he probably has about ⅔ of the offered milk but is quite contrary and some days will have all of it so I keep offering it.

Oh and naps are completely random! Usually 2 or 3, rarely longer than 30 mins each although the last couple of weeks he's managed an hour a few times!

5m old. Combo fed formula+ebm

7.45am 7ozs
11am 5ozs
2pm 6ozs
5.30pm 6ozs
8.30pm 6ozs

He's just dropped a feed at 10.30/11pm so this is all new to us.

Naps - if we're at home all day alone then four. One about nine/half past, one about noon, one about 3 and one about 6.

DS is five months next week. He has 5 x 7oz bottles (doesn't always finish them, but usually takes at least 6oz) at 5.30am (ish - depends when he wakes, which is any time between 5 and 6 usually), 8.45am, 12.30pm, 3.45pm, 6.45pm.

He is not weaned yet - we are starting in a few weeks.

Naps are all over the place. He always has one approx 2 hours after waking - usually not long after his second bottle - but the length of it is totally variable. Then one after the lunchtime bottle, but occasionally he has it before if he can't make it through. Then usually a short one about 5pm to get him through to bedtime. So generally 3 naps a day but sometimes 4 if they haven't been very long ones.
