Getting to three meals....

Hi.Can anyone please give me advice as to how to get my DD to 3 meals?
Current routine:
Wake up at 5am....bottle, then back to sleep.
8am porridge/breakfast
10am snack
12.30 Lunch
3pm, Milk
5pm Milk and bed.

She falls asleep on the 5 pm bottle then sleeps through to 5am. (Which is great, the total opposite of my first DD, so I really don't want to upset this routine!)

But I would like to get her having 'tea' at some point. She is 7.5 months old.
Any advice appreciated!

I don't think you can until she is awake a bit more in the evening so she can have an evening meal

What time does she go back to sleep till in the morning?

She goes to sleep until about 7.30.....I give her breakfast at 8am.

Rather than milk at 5pm could you try a little food, then follow with a bottle after, if it disturbs the sleep routine you can always revert to the above.
Annabel Karmel has a good meal planner to getting to 3 meals, will try and post a picture of it.
