How much to feed a 6 month old baby?
6-8 Months of age, how much to feed them:
Breastfeed every 3-4 hours or Formula 24-37 ounces.
Always offer solids after bottle or breast. Baby may eat anywhere from 1-3 tablespoons of food at 1 or 2 meals. Don't force it though if they aren't interested or distracted, wait and try again later.
Formula and/or Breast Milk is still most important at this age and stage. Some babies may be eating up to 8 ounces of solid foods between 2-3 "meals" during a day.
An example of our meal schedule: breastmilk in the morning around 7am, then around 9am oat cereal with apple or banana puree roughly a teaspoon, mixed with breastmilk. then breastmilk around 11am.
Around 1-2pm we have a teaspoon of vegetable puree mixed with breastmilk. Breastmilk around 4pm, around 7-8pm vegetable puree mixed with breastmilk, around 11pm breastmilk. Sometimes breastmilk around 3 or 4 am.
