My son is 8 months old now and is so unpredictable.. Sometimes he'll eat a lot, sometimes a little.. also, do you girls think the amount of food he eats a day depends on how well he'll sleep at night.? It's so frustrating because some days he'll eat solids, and sometimes he'll have nothing to do with it.. What solids do you give your lo? I think I just need a better routine.. Thanks

My 8 month old ds drinks anywhere from 18-24oz a day, and eats about 20-24tbsp solids a day. That's 3 bottles & 3 meals. I do think that how much they eat during the day can affect their sleep at night. The way to get rid of nightly feedings to to increase their intake during the day. My ds likes solids so I don't usually have a problem with getting him to eat all his food. When he is teething and sick though he tends to eat less. I feed him a wide variety of veggies & fruits, meats & beans, tofu, finger foods & yogurt.

My ds is 8 months old and eats 24 to 28 ounces of formula a day and 4 ozs of juice (that is actually 1 ounce juice w/ 3 ounces of water). He eats alteast twice a day right now at our meals and we try to just mush up what we are eating if it is healthy. We also do fruits in a mesh feeder and puffs for snacks when he acts hungry. We too are struggling w/ a routine tho haha
