baby feeding schedule 8-12 month old


Here you'll find a sample baby feeding schedule for your 8-12-month old baby.

At this age many babies eat solid food on a regular basis. They are getting bigger and hungrier and will benefit from an established feeding routine. You will simply have a happier and more content baby!

The biggest change compared to the feeding schedule for younger babies is that you can now serve cooked food twice a day. This means that your baby will get more varied food than earlier.

I usually follow this schedule for my babies. Even our toddler is following more or less the same schedule, so it works for quite some time.

The only part of the schedule that I skip sometimes is the snack before lunch. If our baby (or toddler) had a really big breakfast, a snack early in the day is sometimes unnecessary, and tends to destroy his appetite at lunch.

Experiment a bit to see what works best for your child.
