Feeding schedules for 4 - 6 month olds

I know there have been alot of posts lately about solids an I too am new to this feeding solid thing but i havent really read anything about feeding schedules. I Have done the cereals and apple juice and i am about to begin jarred food.

Can you ladies let me know how often you feed and the quantity of cereal, juices and jar food you use in a typical day. My dd is 4 1/2 months old and i want to start a good schedule. Right now i feed formula every three hours and try the cereal in the morning and the evening. I am not sure how often i can give juices and jar food too.

Re: Feeding schedules for 4 - 6 month olds

At 4 months I think I did 2 jar feedings a day. Cereal and fruit or just fruit in the morning and then a veggie in the evening. At 6 months our doc said go to 3 meals a day if you haven't already. Once my kids were used to eating food they both quickly jumped to 1 jar a feeding to 2 jars a feeding. Both doing 1 1/2-2 jars a feeding by 6 months...but I also have big babies. They will know when they are full. Your son will turn his head or whine when he doesn''t want anymore. My kids were also still doing 3-4 bottles a day of 8oz formula at that age.
