starlight_94 - September 30

My ds is almost 8 months and Im curious how others babies around this age are eating and napping. My ds has 2 naps a day (one morning and one evening nap )they are normally 2 hours each. He has 3 1/2 bottles a day...9am, 2pm, and 8pm (possibly a 4 oz one at 7pm) depending on how he eats his solids during he day. He has 2 meals(jars of baby food) and lots of snacks throught out the day. I am still working on the sippy cup, which is not an easything to teach. Does this seem normal?? Just wanted to make sure he is on the right track!! THX

yup., sounds good to me! my ds was on 3 meals of baby food at that time but he always was a big eater and we had to try and reduce his formula intake. he is now 11 months on is down to 2 bottles a day and 3 meals and 2 snacks a day.

My dd is 8 months...I think by now 3 meals is the "norm"...My dd has breakfast (1/3c. oatmeal and one stage 2 fruit) around 8am, lunch (1 stage 2 veggie, and sometimes 1/2 fruit) around 11:30 and dinner (chicken and a veggie with oatmeal) around 4pm...she nurses first thing in the a.m., then has about 3 bottles after that...although she doesn't seem to take more than 5-6 oz in each bottle. Generally my dd naps 2x and they're 1.5-2.5 hours each...although lately she's been taking only 1hr naps..My dd likes to chew on the sippy cup and that is about it. We're trying, but I'm not forcing. Hope that helps!!!

My ds (7.5 months old) takes 2-3 naps a day. They can be anywhere from 45 mins-2hrs long. That's why if his first two are short he will have a 3rd nap. He drinks 3 bottles a day (8oz each) at 7am, 12pm, 7pm. He is on 3 meals a day and eats about 6-10 tbsp a meal. He has 6tbsp of cereal for dinner, 6-10 tbsp fruit for lunch, and 6-10 tbsp veggie/meat combo for dinner. He drinks water from his sippy cup during lunch & dinner (about 2-4oz total a day). He is still practicing with finger foods and I will let him "snack" on something between lunch and dinner.
