I'm new to baby led solids and want to run my baby's schedule by you. I feel like she's started nursing less and refusing some nursing sessions after eating more solids and I'm a little concerned...yet, she's 8.5 mo. and I'm excited for her to be eating food if she's interested - just not substituting food for milk when she's hungry - kwim? Please give me some input if this looks like a good schedule for an 8.5 mo. old:
7-7:30 a.m. nurse
11 a.m. solid (usually fruit or veggie, or combo of both - 1-2 tablespoons at most)
11:30 5-6 oz. of EBM in bottle
3 - somtimes a snack (half piece of dry toast, rice cookie, banana)
3:30 - nurse
6:00 - sometimes dinner (pasta, veggie, cheerios)
8:30-9 nurse before bed
Nurse somewhere during the night - this is the feeding that she sometimes drops after eating dinner...
So, if she drops a feeding, she's down to only 5 feedings instead of 6 and she goes 4-5 hours between feedings...
