Hello. Just wondering what time your LOs have their evening meal?
I started off saying 5pm, but she is quite tired and grumpy by then and she wont sit in her high chair if tired.
If I make it 4pm, or even a little bit earlier, will there then be too much gap between food and bedtime? DD is still BF on demand between meals, but BM doesnt seem to fill her up, and at night I often end up giving a bottle as she is still hungry after a breastfeed and wont sleep.
Anyway, what time would you suggest offering solids?
Overmydeadbody - I obviously know about when she is hungry, but being only 6month old, breastmilk is stil her main food, so she doesnt always have solids when she is hungry, she has breastmilk alot of the time. If I gave her solids every time she was hungry, she wouldnt get enough milk. I am still interested in finding out about your babyfood buissness by the way!
I just meant don't worry too much about sticking to a rigid timetable, you could take it day by day and aim for anywhere between 4 and 5pm.
Oops, sorry, I knew there was something I was meant to be emailing someone! Things have been rather busy lately, but I will get back to you by the end of the week I promise! (I am working while MNing, honest )
Good idea DB. We have never had a strict routine, and wouldnt want one. But now she is on 3 meals a day etc I like to have a rough idea of our day planned out in my head. But if she is tired, I will let her sleep, if hngry she feeds etc. So basically just a guide and if it works it works.
My DS is 6 and a bit months old and has his tea at 5pm with DD (2.4). Like DB suggested, my DB often has 30 min nap at 4.30 and then is refreshed for tea. We have a bit playtime after tea then bathtime is a huge event! By the time I'm reading the bedtime stories he is really shattered and goes to bed at 7pm without any bother at all. He's fully breastfed as well
