Re: ? for anyone who has 5 mth. old
my 5 month old eats about every 2 1/2- 3 hours during the day, and wakes up atleast once at night to nurse. i have no idea how much he takes in at each feeding but i think he eats somewhere around 34 - 40oz of bmilk a day. i haven't given him solids yet. i'm very pro for waiting until about 7 or 8 months until giving them solids since it helps reduce the amount of food allergies, etc they might develop. he's doing just fine, weighed in at almost 18lbs. at his last dr. check up.
i also have a two year old, i waited until almost 8 months to give him food since he refused the rice cereal when he was about 5 1/2 months old. we just went to straight food then, and i would grind it up in a baby mill.
i've heard you're not supposed to give a baby 'solids' in their bottle, i think because it helps promote tooth decay, i could be wrong there though.
