my DD Is EBF and we started weaning at 6 months. She tries everything and eats purees and bits of bread etc. I just don't know what VOLUME of food she should be having? Two meals a day plus 5 breastfeeds? That is what I'm doing at the moment but her sleep has become unsettled so I'm worried I have the quantities wrong.
I'm not an expert, but DS is almost 7 months and is on 3 meals per day (but mostly finger food so as much of it coats his outsides as his insides). He has a first-thing and last-thing breasfeed and at nursery, 200ml of formula.
He doesn't really like the formula so I worry a bit low on milk, but I think that's due to the formula (doesn't mind ready made but nursery give him powdered) as previously he was having 4 or 5 'proper' breastfeeds per day plus 3 meals.
My dd is nearly seven months and she has her regular milk intake of 3x 210 ml of formula plus a small breakfast which I just introduced At lunch I make sure she has a protein meal, so approx 30g of meat or fish with vegetables plus a small yoghurt or mashed banana. The last meal is usually vegetables, or fruit and veg equivalent of half a sweet potato and a few broccoli florets.
It's milk though that is still the most important feature...so I would continue with the five breastfeeds
