My LO is 11.5 months and we've almost made it a year (despite some challenges, biting, etc.)! However, I'm so overwhelmed by trying to get his feeding schedule figured out, as he is losing interest in some of our nursing sessions. I'm just wondering if any of you could share your approximate schedules - times, foods, nursing/bottle/sippy cup, etc.? Currently his schedule is:
Wakes between 6 & 7, nurses at 7
Sometimes he goes back down between 7:30 & 9
Breakfast around 10:15 - 4 oz BM in a bottle plus either cereal/fruit, yougurt, oatmeal, etc.
Lunch around 1:30 - 4 oz BM in a bottle plus cereal and a veggie
I nurse him when I get home between 4:30 and 5
Dinner around 6:15 - Meat/veggie, maybe some cereal, fruit/yogurt for dessert, juice/water in sippy cup
Nurse before bed at 8
He usually wakes up once during the night (between 1 & 4 am to nurse)
He gets snacks during the day too, cheerio's, gerber puffs/yogurt bites, etc. sometimes with juice/water in sippy cup
He is getting his top teeth in right now, so I'm not sure if that is contributing to the loss of interest in some of the nursing sessions (mainly the 7 am one). I REALLY want to introduce "real" food - fruits, veggies, pasta, chicken, etc., but am totally clueless. I'd love to know what other moms are doing! Also, I've read alot about some moms who only nurse in the morning and night, so am wondering if it's time to hang up my pump and just move to that with him getting a sippy cup of milk throughout the day.
Thanks for any advice/ideas!
