    Go on to 2nd Stage Foods?

    Hi, All!

    My ds just turned 5 months old on Monday and is an eating machine!!! He started solids last month and his pedi also had us start baby juice. I'm wondering if we should move up to the more substantial stage 2 foods because he wants to eat something every 2-3 hours during the day

    7:00am 8oz Formula
    9:30am Ceral + Container of Fruit
    12pm 8oz Formula
    1:30pm 4oz Juice + Solid
    3:30pm 8oz Formula
    6:30pm 8oz Formula + Solid

    The pedi said that we aren't over feeding him because he doesn't go over 40oz in formula, but it seems like we are always putting a bib on for some sort of meal!! He sleeps 6:30-6:30 with no night wakings.

    my dd pedi told me to start stage 2 when Zoey turns 6 months. I think every pedi is different though.

    This is the schedule I had when my girls were 5 months.

    7:00am bottle
    10:00am bottle
    1:00pm bottle
    4:00pm bottle
    7:00pm bottle
    7:30pm cereal
    8:00pm bedtime

    For your schedule you could try feeding him cereal/fruit
    after he drinks his first bottle. I would wait about 30-45 min though.

    And then another bottle around 10ish, another bottle around 1:00
    and then a solid (veggie) and then another bottle at 4:00
    and then another bottle at 7:00 and then around 7:30 cereal

    I just realized that he goes to bed at 6:30 so you may have to work
    it another way for his last bottle.

    Good Luck,
