Feeding Schedule for 10-Month-Old Baby?

Can I have an example of feeding schedule for 10 months old baby? I am not quite sure if I am feeding my baby enough and enough times. She sometimes seems hungry despite just eaten.

A feeding schedule would be great!

Baby Help Line:

Feeding Schedules For 9-10 Months Old Babies

Sure thing! The below schedule still worked more or less even for our 3 year old.

Here’s the feeding schedule for an 8 to 10 month old baby.

And here are a few other threads in the Forum, with feeding schedules shared:

But also make sure you scroll down this page. A huge number of parents have shared their feeding schedules by commenting below. Feel free to add your own too! :-)

Hope this helps,

ten month old feeding schedule

by: Monica Campos


that’s about the same I feed to my almost ten month old baby girl. But I give her more formula in between feedings and make her home made chicken soup with vegetables for dinner most of the time instead of the gerbers.

eating so frequently

by: Anonymous


ok so i am also struggling with a feeding schedule for my 10 month old twins…

i feel like i struggled to spread their nursing sessions out to four hours, and now that they are eating solids, i seem to be feeding babies every two hours or so

i see that is what you all are doing too

how do you get anything done/go anywhere with babies eating so often

Twins feeding schedule

by: Anonymous


My twins are 10 months old now. They wake between 6-7. They get an 8 oz bottle at about 7:30. The usually nap from 9-11. They split 1 full cup (dry) of rice cereal and/or oatmeal. Sometimes I will give them a stage 2 fruit. They also take 5 oz. They play until nap time at 1 which lasts until 3. At 3 they get 5oz bottle and I full stage 2 jar of a meal (chicken/beef or something) and a full stage 2 veggie. THey stay awake until their final 8 oz bottle which happens between 6-7. Sometimes they will take a stage 2 cereal fruit jar. They go to sleep at 7-7:30. Hope this helps.

10 month old feeding schedule

by: Brea’s mommy


Wakes at 8-8:30 a.m. and starts off with an 8 oz. bottle

Breakfast at 9:30 (1/4 cup rice cereal with 3 oz. formula. Scrambled eggs (yolks and whites) OR buttered toast OR pancakes). Cup (I like the Avent Magic cups) with 1-2 oz. of whole milk. (My doctor said I can start weaning her from formula).

YoBaby Yogurt (with iron fortied cereal mixed in) at 10:45 a.m. Also likes to eat a whole Kraft single piece of cheese.

Lunch at 12:30 (Cut up sandwich for finger feeding (grilled cheese, turkey and cheese, etc.) plus a fruit (one whole banana cut up for finger feeding or cut up berries, etc.) 2 oz. whole milk in cup.

Nap 1 – 3:30/4 p.m.

Dinner at 5:00 (Basically whatever we eat but in appropriate portions for her). Usually a meat and two veggies or a veggie and pasta.

Bath at 7:30 followed by 8 oz. bottle followed by bedtime around 8:15 or 8:30 p.m.

Hope this helps…

My daughter is actually 9 1/2 months but here is her schedule:

8am-7 oz bottle
10am-1 jar baby food mixed with cereal
12pm-7 oz bottle
12:30-3:30-nap
4pm-7 oz bottle
5:30pm-1 jar baby food
7:30/8pm-8 oz bottle

She just really started taking baby food though so that’s why she’s not on whole lot.

Meat Eater!

by: Anonymous


Our baby is 10 months old (today!); her ‘schedule’ (which does vary slightly):
- wakes up at 5am for 7-8 oz bottle and goes back to sleep (90% of the time)
- wakes up again at 6:30-7 am for 6 oz bottle
- plays a bit and then has breakfast 7:30 am (oatmeal, other mixed cereals, pureed fruit mixed with yoghurt, sometimes cheese, toast and cream cheese)
- has another bottle (6-8 oz) and sometimes takes a nap around 9:30 am for 30 min.
- has lunch at 11:30- noon (mostly finger foods (cheese, meats, some pureed veg, rice crisps))
- sometimes has a bottle (6-8 oz) at 1pm and goes for a nap (1 hour, if I’m lucky)
- has a snack around 3 pm (finger foods – bread, veg/fruits, cottage cheese, cheerios)
- has supper between 4:30pm-5:30 pm (finger foods – pasta, cheese, meat – we give her some of our supper, if she likes it!)
- 6:30 pm – bath, stories and another bottle (6-8 oz) before going to bed between 7-7:30pm
(She doesn’t really like many vegs or fruits as ‘finger’ foods yet….)

My 10 mo. old’s schedule

by: Amy


7:30 Wakes up, breakfast of baby oatmeal and 1 jar of fruit

10:00 – 11ish Nap, then 8oz. formula in bottle when she gets up

12:30 Lunch – meats/veggies table food and baby food

2:30 8 oz. formula (try this one in a cup, but she doesn’t take it very well from a cup yet)

3 – 4ish Nap

5:00 Dinner – meats/veggies/fruit table food and baby food

7:30/8:00 8 oz. formula in bottle, goes to bed

I would like to transition to MORE table food and no bottles, but it isn’t going well so far. I think I need to just trust that she will still get enough to eat even if she cuts back and won’t eat as much if I quit bottles and baby food.

bedtime question

My nephew is 10 months old and his mother just told me that she still breastfeeds him ever few hours at night! Is this normal??? Should a 10 month old be eating every 3 1/2 – 4 hours around the clock?

feeding schedule for 10mo old

by: Anonymous


I recommend the following schedule for all babies with the amounts varying depending on your child’s weight, size, and appetite (every babies needs are different, but this schedule should work til they are 18mo old)

7am Wake up

7:15-7:30am Breakfast:
No bottle or pre-nursing; start
off with 4-5 ounces of formula or
breastmilk mixed with oatmeal/rice
cereal to your satisfied texture
with 2oz fruit for flavor (try to
use water in sippy to rinse down)

9:30-11:15 MORNING NAPTIME

11:15-11:30 SNACK TIME
however many oz formula/breastmilk
your baby desires (they will know
when they are full and you’ll be
feeding solids soon so they won’t
be starving if it’s not as much as
you think they should want)

1pm Lunch:
start with an entree (4-5oz of
meat/veggies; finger foods) and
rinse with water in a sippee, then
finish with fruit (maybe 2oz) but
baby should start to slow down or
stop when full (they know better
than us)

2:30-4pm AFTERNOON NAPTIME

4pm SNACKTIME
however many oz formula/breastmilk
your baby desires (they will know
when they are full and you’ll be
feeding solids soon so they won’t
be starving if it’s not as much as
you think they should want)

6pm Dinner:
start with an entree (4-5oz of
meat/veggies; finger foods) and
rinse with water in a sippee, then
finish with fruit (maybe 2oz) but
baby should start to slow down or
stop when full (they know better
than us)

6:30-7 Bathe, pj’s, breastmilk/formula,
book, bedtime (I recommend their
bottle and then book because it
will condition the baby to go to
bed after the book is read and not
the bottle making it easier to cut
the bottle feed out completely at
1 year when they can drink milk
with their dinner)

I have twins now that are 2 and 2 mo old and another set due in 2 1/2 weeks; I swear by this schedule and used it from 6mo to 18mo and it worked like a charm — at 18mo we slowly weaned them to 1 afternoon nap a day and then recently they quit taking naps altogether this past week on their own)

Generational feeding pattern

by: Grandma Noni


Wake 7am – 8 oz formula
7.30 – baby cereal with fresh fruit puree
9.00 – sleep
10.30 – awake – fun,play,sterile water drink from bottle 11.30
12.00 – prepared veg with either fish.chicken,cheese (pureed,)Yoghurt/fruit plus water drink from bottle
1.00 – sleep
2.30 – awake/8oz formula
5.00 – veg/fruit/carbohydrate very finely chopped
6.00 – bath
6.30 – 8 oz formula
7.00 – bed

It works for my grandchildren, both whom I have had a significant input to. Now 11 months using family food (blending some plus chopping much – at this age they need the chewing action to develop healthy gums and chewing is all part of language development) they thrive. Both girls have been/are being challenged with chewing – it is essential for the structural development of muscles in the mouth.

A little off…

by: Natalie


I know the babies thrive on schedules, and I guess we “sort of” have one, here’s a rough estimate of how our day goes:

10:30am- wake up
11:00am- breakfast of cheerios, sippy of water, and fruit (papaya, banana, melon, apple) chopped into small bites or yo-baby yogurt
12:00- nap time
2:00- 6 ounces formula, green peas, small cheese bites, puffs or a piece of bread
4:30pm another bottle of 6 oz and sometimes a nap
6:30pm another “meal” in the high chair consisting of a little of whatever we are eating, usually basmati rice, sweet potatoes, and veggies or fruit cut up, sometimes I spoon feed applesauce

She goes back down to sleep (and sleeps well through the night) around 9:30-10:00pm. I am wondering if anyone has tips for transitioning the schedule so she starts going to sleep earlier? Also, we’re not doing SO great with the sippy cup thing, she can’t figure out she needs to tip it. Any tips for weaning off bottle? I’ve bought several different types of cups, the latest being the Nuby soft spout one, which has worked better than the others.

Prepare your kids some real homemade foods, it doesn’t even take that long to make it and it’s 100% better & healthier. They need to be chewing by now. Give them some REAL FOOD because that is what they need!

10 month old wont take sippy cup

by: Anonymous


To the lady that posted a comment about her infant not drinking from a sippy cup. I have the same problem and presently have sitting in my kitchen cupboard 8 differant styles none of which my son will drink out of. I now give him water from a normal cup (with a tea towel held under his chin) and he prefers that to any of the cups. The worst part of that is he won’t be able to give himself a drink for a while yet but at least it works. Had no success with the sippy cups at all this time.
Also, to the lady that asked how to bring her daughters bedtime back so she wasn;t going to bed so late. I had the same problem and I bought off ebay a Vtech Lights & Sounds Mobile. Has worked a treat. He knows now that when it is on it means sleep time. It has 3min ,5min or 10 min run time and self activates with movement through the night so if he wakes it starts up and sends him back to sleep. Wish I had of had it from his birth. Hope this helps.

SIPPY CUP

by: Anonymous


sippy cup problems!!
my daughter wouldn’t drink from a sippy cup and I was doing the same thing..giving her water from a regular cup, but I wanted her to learn to use the sippy cup. I noticed that the main problem was that she was getting frustrated because she couldn’t get the liquid out of the sippy, so I decided to remove the valve from the lid. She drank like that for a week and then I put the valve back and she didn’t even noticed…so now she loves her sippy cup.

Just be patient and keep trying!!

my 10 1/2 month olds schedule

by: Amzy


i feel like my daughters schedule works great for me because i work late so for all you servers who work late in the evening this may help out:

10:30 am – wake up
10:45 am – breakfast (oatmeal or rice cereal with fruit mixed in and a 6oz bottle of formula)
2 pm – an entree (stage 2 or 3) of babyfood and a 7oz bottle
7 pm – stage 2 jar veggie and fruit and some juice in sippy cup
10 pm – 7-8oz bottle then bed
i lay her down, turn on her lullaby cd and leave the room and shes out within minutes!
thats the main layout of the schedule. of course we have a snack or 2 during the day like the gerber graduates puffs or biter biscuits or dan nino yogurt and she naps when shes ready to nap but its normally no more than once a day and sometimes its only for a few minutes but when she goes to bed she SLEEPS! i don’t hear a peep till around 10:30 or 11am its great!

Real Food & Real Schedules

by: Anonymous


I agree with the lady saying to feed your babies real food. Habits start from now. It’s easy to make fresh food (freeze it) or if you cook wholesome meals for yourselves, just don’t add the salt until your remove some for your baby.
As for shedules, babies should not be going to bed at 10pm. One day when they need to go to daycare or school, it’ll be had to transition.
We got to think, what we teach them today they will be tomorrow.

Good luck.

still trying to get one down

by: Kim


We have been trying to fatten her up and I think we over succeeded so I was glad to see the comments here so we can adjust what she is eating etc because 2 1/2 lbs in two weeks is a ridiculous amount of weight to have just gained. So I think we are going to back off a bit and work towards coming up with a good pattern, seems like most you guys are doing what I would expect to be normal. Glad I found this information.

10 Month Feeding Schedule

by: Anonymous


Here is my son’s schedule.

7:30am wake up

8:00am 2oz formula mixed with 1/4 oatmeal, with 1/2 of a stage 2 fruit mixed in; if he eats all of it I’ll offer the rest of the fruit package; offer water

9:00am nap (1 – 2 hours)

12:00pm 4-6oz formula and stage 2 veggie; sometimes 1/2 of stage 2 fruit also; offer water

1:30pm nap (1 – 3 hours)

4:00pm 4-6oz formula and stage 2 fruit; sometimes 1-2 oz oatmeal also; offer water

5:30pm nap (until 7:00pm)

8:15pm 4-6oz formula, stage 2 dinner (meat and veggie mixed), a little of what ever we’re eating for dinner, and sometimes 1-2 oz of oatmeal; offer water

8:45pm – 9:30pm bedtime – whenever he’s ready

We give him finger foods and water between meals to munch on such as puffs, yogurt melts, cracker wheels, steamed carrots, sliced bananas. He prefers water and doesn’t have any interest in juice. He thinks any cup with handles is meant for play and doesn’t like the sippy cups. He’s been able to drink from a straw since about 5-6 months so he prefers the straw cups instead.

He is 10 months and 2 weeks; 23 lbs 5 oz; 33.5 inches

11:00- 1-2 oz juice diluted with water or just water.

5:30- Dinner: jar of baby food and some finger foods, pasta, rice, bread, cheese etc.

7:00- 8 oz bottle of formula
bathtime, quiet play and then to bed

She will sometimes wake up at 11:00pm for another 6oz feed but this has been decreasing since her solid food is increasing.
Hope this helps!

I notice from the previous comments how everyone feeds their babies from jars.
We tried this between 4 and 6 months, but really now we are happier to prepare fresh ingredients and not use convenience foods.

night nursing

by: Anonymous


My feeding schedule mimics alot of yours but does anyone else still have a problem nursing throught he night? I don’t know if it because she’s getting her molars but she doesnt eat as much in the day and wants to nurse more through the night. Needless to say shes up every 3-4 hrs again. Was sleeping no problem until a month ago.

Almost 10 mos.

by: Anonymous


8am: wakes up

9am: 6 oz. formula *she wants to play when she wakes, then lets me know when she wants her sippy cup*

10-10:30am: a few tbls. oatmeal, whole wheat, barley, or mixed grain cereal mixed with a bit of formula and 1 jar stage 2 fruit. Small piece of fruit (1 lg. strawberry, etc.)

11:30am-12:30pm: 6 oz. formula in sippy cup. She naps for approximately 30 mins. during this time frame.

1-1:30pm: Either 1 jar stage 3 veggie and meat, or veggie, or the Gerber “bowls” for toddlers (spaghetti-O’s or the like). Also, 1 small pc. fruit.

4pm: 6 oz. formula in cup. She naps around this time.

5:30pm: 1 jar stage 3 “dinner”

6pm: Various table foods: green beans, peas, squash, small pcs. of meat, etc.

8:30pm: Bath, followed by rub down with lavender lotion

9pm: 6 oz. formula and she’s down for the night.

For the duration of her play periods I have a bowl with a suction cup base on the coffee table (I think Munchkin makes the bowl I use). I keep the bowl filled with the yogurt bites, lil’ crunchies, or even small pieces of fruit, like either a whole strawberry, or, if she is especially active, I will break the strawberry into pieces for her.

When her teeth are bothering her, I give her frozen fruit, like peach slices, etc. When she didn’t have as many teeth (around 5-6 mos.), I would give her the frozen fruit in this “thing” that had a mesh bag for the fruit and a hard plastic base with a ring to make it easy to hold. That was when she found out that she loved strawberries.

HELP!!!

by: Anonymous


I cannot seem to get my daughter back on a schedule since the holidays!!!!!!!!
I try feeding her breakfast first because she never wanted her fomula in the morning before and now she shreeks for her milk after her first spoonful of cereal…she then wants milk again 2 hours later when it is usually time for her nap, She’s all mixed up and so am I…How can i get her back on a regular schedule? she will be starting daycare soon and she needs to start getting used to a schedule!!! Ahhhh…I can’t get anything done! I am starting to teach her signing so i can understand what she wants because i can’t tell anymore if she is crying for milk, nap, water or food! She is my first baby and i feel so lost! Any suggestions???

PS to all the judgemental, know it all mothers i have been reading comments from about homemade baby food etc…, you should be more understanding, NOBODY is perfect and what you think is right may be right for your child and your situation may not be right for others for many different reasons, unless you are perfect (which nobody is), do not judge what someone else is doing!
I make homemade purees for my daughter because i have the time to do so, but will never question why someone else doesnt!
Moms need to stick together.

Thanks!!!!!

Start Daycare she will be in schedule

by: Anonymous


This is for that anonymous question in which she asked what i will do that my baby has no schedule. So my suggestion is this that in daycare kids start their schedule by themselves. You just give then 4 bottles of 6oz-8oz and give whatever your likes in between whether cereal or fruit or yobaby yogurt. Daycare persons will make the schedule by themselve. You need not to worry about. It is almost same for all the kids but since you are at home right now thats why you are not getting it being a mom.

WAY TOO LATE on the bedtimes, Moms!

by: Anonymous


Who are you people that put your children to bed after 8 pm? You are setting them up for bad behavior and terrible habits in the future! Bedtimes for infants need to be pre-8 pm; ask any nurse or pediatrician!

WAY TOO LATE on the bedtimes moms…

by: Anonymous


I say do what is right for you! If putting your baby to bed at 7 is right for you…do so…
If putting your baby to bet at 11 is right for you…do so…Just love them and care for them the best you can!
Do not listen to judgemental moms and just wait and see how PERFECT their kids turn out to be ;-)
Come on moms…
lets get real!!! everyone’s situation is different or have we not evolved enough yet to realize that?
As long as no one is mistreating or beating their children who are we to judge???

How pathetic!

by: Anonymous


I am completely amazed at how pathetic some of the moms on here sound. Just because you dont raise your child one way doesnt mean it is the right way! & it doesnt mean that if someone is doing something different than you that its the wrong way. My little boy is just over ten months old & by no means is he on a perfect schedule. He never wakes up at the same time nor does he eat at the same time. But the doctor always says he knows when hes tired & he knows when he hungry & he will make you well aware of either one.

He usually wakes up anywhere from 8-11 am… If it gets to be past 11 I usually wake him up unless he had a rough day the day before then I just let him sleep.

As soon as he wakes up he get a jar of stage 2 fruit & gerber pear juice in his sippy. (more fruit if it doesnt fill him up)

He plays untill about noon- 1 depending on when he wakes up & then he gets real people food. He has already switched over too whole foods so usually for lunch I will make him a turkey sandwhich or some other kind & chop it up into bit size pieces. He also gets a cut up piece of fruit, or the gerber apple slcies you can buy & another cup of juice. & little puffs or yogurt bites if he is still hungry.

After he eats he plays for awhile then has a nap any where from 2-5pm. Before hand he drinks an 8oz bottle of formula to get him to sleep

After he wakes up whcih is any where from 4-7pm he plays then whenever supper is done he eats with us. Same of everything just smaller bites & usually he wants formula with diner but soetimes he has juice. I usually let him decide. & if he is still hungry then he gets a jar of stage 2 veggies/meat.

Anywhere from 8-10pm he goes to sleep & doesnt wake up untill the listed time above the next morning.

My little one is very advanced for his age & has been walking for almost two months now. He can say as many words as the average one year old & amazes the doctor every time we go…. so for you “perfect” parents out there, your hurtful opinions are not appreciated!

Response to How Pathetic…

by: Anonymous


Thanks for speaking up!!!! I really do agree with you !!! My daughter happens to be on a schedule but only because this seems to work best for her and us! But i strongly believe that each child and each family is different…We have to listen to our own instincts and sit back and watch the children of those “perfect” moms turn into unblemished adults!!! hahahaha…

Criticism seems to come flying from everywhere once you become a mom! Incredible!! Ignore and trust your instinct…You know your baby best!

To all the moms giving examples of their schedules, Thanks! As it is a great reference for a first time mom who feels lost. But to the new moms reading this, look over all the suggestions and just go with what’s best for you! There is no right or wrong way … Just love your babies!

Fathers be good to your daughters.
Daughters will love like you do.
Girls become mothers, who turn into lovers
So mothers be good to your daughters too.

Hope this helps

6am – 5 oz cup of formula (I like the Gerber Nuk cup) and 1/2 cup of oatmeal mixed with formula

9:30 6 oz cup of formula

10am- nap usually between 1-2 hours

12pm – lunch usually cut up fruit and veggie, sometimes have of a gerber graduates little entree (they are great to send to the sitters)

1:30 6 oz cup of formula

2:00 nap usually 1-1:30 hours

4:00 5 oz cup

5:30 dinner usually fruit, veggie and sometimes some of what we are eating

6:30 7 oz bottle and then bed at 7pm

I am a feeding therapist and this schedule has also worked for alot of my patients. At this age if your child has teeth and you are sitting with them they really should be on all finger foods or small cut eating pretty much what you are eating minus the formula instead of whole milk. In regards to a bottle you can typically start weaning, developmentally a child should be off a bottle completely by one year of age.

Doesn’t really like to drink formula

by: Anonymous


5:15-5:45 wakes up in crib, I give her 6 oz. bottle of formula

Goes back to sleep (with us in our bed) until about 7:00-7:15

8:30ish – Breakfast of 2-3 tbsp. baby oatmeal, 1/2 jar fruit (pear) puree, 1/3 container yo-baby yogurt, 1 oz. formula (all mixed together), 1/4 piece toast w/ cream cheese spread on top (or a variation would be a small handful of cheerios)

9:30/10:00ish – Nap (give bottle of about 4 oz. formula before nap) *naps about 1 hour to 1.5 hours

Around 11:30-12:00 I offer her 4 oz. bottle, she usually only takes about 1-2 oz. Sometimes she drinks a little more of it after lunch.

12:30ish – lunch of pureed veggies and 1/3 container of yo-baby yogurt, 1 baby mum-mum rice cracker or handful of puffs, and a few little cubes of cheese. Water in a sippy (doesn’t drink much, just sips)

Nap around 1:45-2:00, usually only naps for about 45 minutes to an hour, sometimes less if we are in the car or “on the go”.

Offer 5 oz. bottle after 2nd nap, sometimes she drinks the whole thing, sometimes she “snacks” taking an ounce or so at a time. (struggle!) – she usually doesn’t finish it entirely.

Dinner around 4:45-5:00 pm — pureed veggies w/ meat and recently rice or pasta pieces mixed in for texture (and to practice chewing) – stage 3 if using jarred food. Plus the last 1/3 container of the yogurt mixed w/ a tsp. of oatmeal, then some finger snacks such as puffs or rice cracker, water in sippy cup.

6:15 bath

6:40 bottle – but only about 2-3 oz. (again, a struggle)

6:45/7:00ish – book, then asleep

*on average, sophie gets about 18-20 oz. of formula a day. My pediatrician recommends 24-26 oz. minimum. I cannot get her to drink more than 20 oz. daily. Frustrating! But I know eventually I’ll be weaning her of the formula and on to regular cow’s milk. She’s doing well and fluctuates between the 25th and 50th percentile for weight.

10 1/2 month old – delightful happy child

by: Anonymous


Our daughter does extremely well with the following schedule and it works great for our family. We go out several times a week, and sometimes her schedule is altered. Because we do this often, she is pretty flexible.

9:30 wakes up content. plays or talks in crib for a few minutes. 7-8 oz bottle of formula.

9:30 – 11:30 play time

11:30 – naptime. sleeps an hour to an hour and a half

12:30 or 1:00 – 6 oz formula in sippy cup (Nuby)

organic puffs as a snack. She also gets 1/2 to 1 jar of stage 2 organic veg or oatmeal fruit blend before 2nd nap. I prefer Earth’s Best because they offer a lot of variety. Sometimes she gets a real sweet potato or some of my lunch instead of puree.

3:30 or 4 – naptime. sleeps about an hour

4:30 or 5:00 – 7 oz. formula and later a fruit or veggie, or some organic yogurt blended with fruit and veg puree (new from Stoneyfield)

5:00 – 7:30 – playime with Daddy. Mommy goes to work. Sometime during this period she usually gets a jar of food – we are now trying meat blends. We are also transitioning to giving her more table food. She gets a little apple/prune juice cut with water every few days to help keep her regular but she needs that less now that she gets veggies and fruits.

7:30 – 6 to 8 oz bottle and then bathtime and bed. She goes down like a dream almost every night and sleeps until around 9am or so.

I work evenings so her day starts a bit later than most. When I was working at 8am for several months, she would get up at 7:15 or 7:30 but her schedule was exactly the same with the times adjusted accordingly and a slightly earlier bedtime. She adjusted to a later schedule without a problem when I started working nights. For now, this is perfect for all of us. I am confident she will adjust again to the earlier schedule when the time comes for go to school.

My 10-month-old twins’ schedules

by: Anonymous


My girls were on-schedule and in-sync the first month. From months 2-6 they had varied feeding schedules. After all, one got hungrier quicker. Now that they are in daycare and are older, I am trying to schedule their feedings closer together. In time, I hope that they will be in sync with our feeding schedules. But I agree that all babies are (as all adults are) different.

5am-6am wakes: 5oz bottle

8am-9am breakfast: 1/2 cup rice cereal or oatmeal with one stage 1 fruit/cereal blend; sips of water

10am-11am snack: 5oz bottle

12pm-1pm lunch: homemade pureed meats, pasta/rice, veggies and fruit; sips of water

2pm-3pm treat: puffs and 3oz juice

4pm-6pm snack: 5oz bottle

6pm-7pm dinner: homemade pureed veggies and fruit and little bits of what we eat; sips of water

8pm-9pm snack: 5oz bottle

Wow

by: Anonymous


As for the putting your kids to be past 8pm… Wow… I mean some people can’t do that at all! My little girl is 10 months and still colic! She will not go to bed until she is ready and I don’t make her because if she is hurting I’m not going to just put her down and make her cry so she stays up until she is ready for bed! Get over yourself!!!

As for feeding… I see all the schedules!!! My little girl eats every 4 hours but that’s about the only “shedule” SHE follows! She hardly ever sleep through the whole night!!! :(

anyone else’s baby go to bed at 6:00?

by: Anonymous


My 9.5 mo old goes to bed around 6:00-6:30 each night b/c she literally refuses to sleep during the day. I will try for an hour some times to get her to sleep for naps. Once asleep, she only stays that way for about half an hour. I’d love to have her nap longer during the day, but can’t complain that she sleeps 6:30pm-6:00am. Anyone else have a child with this type of sleep pattern?? Should I try to put her to bed later?

Preemie 15 weeks early

by: Bfalcon


everyones schedule is about the same, some more than others. But it really depends on the baby. Not all babies are the same!

Just started this schedule, i cut out his 5 am bottle. Took him 3 days to get use to it. It varies if we’re on the go and on the weekends:

7-8am: bottle w/ oatmeal cereal ( may nap, if wakes up early)

9:00am: oatmeal cereal w/ 4oz. stage 2 fruit and 20 pieces of gerber cinnamon/maple puffs, sippee with juice or water

10:00-11: playtime (sometimes morning nap for half hour)

11:30-: bottle w/ oatmeal cereal

12:00-2/3pm: nap( if he wakes up early at 2pm, fresh fruit feeder and puffs, sippee juice or water)

3:30-4pm: bottle w/ oatmeal cereal, veggie and meat stage 2, sippee with juice or water

4-6pm: playtime

6:30pm: bath time, pjs,

7:00pm: read or sing, by 7:30 he’s asleep until 8am the next day.

in a month or two the schedule will adjust in the afternoon so he can eat with us during dinner at 5 and take less bottles.
Dr. says that he is healthy and keep doing what i’m doing.
he started at 1lb. 7oz., at 11 inches long
now he’s 16lbs and 25 1/2 inches long
gains almost 1lb a month

To mom posting Oct 12

by: Paula (Baby Help Line)


Hi,

Relax! Your baby isn’t at all the only one hesitant to new foods. Try to let her just take her time. Stage 2 food is fine as long as she grows according to her scale. Solid foods are not meant to be their main source of nutrition yet anyway; breast milk or formula is.Check with her health nurse to make sure.

The more you put pressure on her to ea, the the more she is likely to protest. Really. A 10 month old is smart and knows very well what she wants. She is also at an age where basically anything new might seem scary and suspicious.

So take a deep breath and let go of all your worries. Make an effort to make the feeding a fun and enjoyable moment. Talk and sing together. Let her feed you. Play peek-a-boo with the food. Give her mainly foods that she already likes and try to introduce new foods very slowly. Do not try to put anything in her mouth that she doesn’t want to. That will just make her resist it more.

Eventually she will get used to trying different foods, but with some children it really takes time. Our youngest refused anything but breast milk, porridge and bananas until he was almost 1 year old :-)

You can try to mix in a small share of stage 3 foods into her favorite foods to slowly help her adapt to the new taste and texture. I did a lot of that, and it seemed to work.

Good luck!

breastfeeding

by: Anonymous


Doesn’t anyone breast feed their babies anymore? I’m surprised at the sheer volume of the word “bottle” in all of these schedules.

I breastfed my son exclusively until he was a bit over 6 months and then introduced gerber foods and formulas. While breastfeeding he wasnt a fan of anything else.

My son is 10 months now and this is his schedule:

7AM – 8oz formula bottle
9AM or 10AM – Gerber Oatmeal w/ bananas or another fruit style puree
11:00AM – gerber snack puffs or doodles with juice
11:30AM 1:00PM – nap time
3:00PM – Gerber 2nd Stage Food (For ex: Apples & Chicken) 8oz. formula bottle
5:00PM – snack puffs OR fruit puree with juice
6:30 or 7:00PM – Gerber 2nd Stage Food OR Mashed dinner (potatoes or rice)
8:30PM – 8oz Formaula Bottle
9:30PM – Bed time

11am: slice of whole wheat bread and ounce of cheese with some water

415Pm: 1/2 baby yogurt and puffs
after down for nap
630pm: stage 2 veg mixed with some meat or with an egg yolk . plus 4 ounce bottle

not everyone can breastfeed

by: Anonymous


To the question of ‘doesn’t anyone breastfeed anymore’, you must realize that not everyone has the ability to do this. For some it is lack of milk, or nutritious milk, for others it is inability to latch or medical problems.

I have a healthy 2 1/2 year old that was NOT breastfed because we adopted. He is absolutely perfect and is completely healthy. I also have a 10 month old daughter that struggled to breastfeed but had difficulties getting her to latch correctly. Add this to a demanding 21 month old who had a horrible throat/ear infection at the time who had a very difficult time letting his sister latch on to me, plus home by myself 5 days a week (husband only home weekends), made the decision for me to put her on formula to ensure that she was getting what she needed and my son was also getting what he needed.

She is now 25lbs and around 28 inches tall. Beautiful and healthy, and developing right on schedule. So to those who would criticize us mothers who cannot breastfeed for whatever reason, show a little understanding and respect before making judgments.

Ella’s routine

by: Anonymous


Firstly, we live in Switzerland, and the paediatrics seem to have a different philosphy for feeding routines, but it works…

Wake up 7am – 8am 8ozs formula milk

8am – 10am Play

10am – 10.30am Nap

11.45 Lunch 2 potatoes, 1 carrot, plus meat or fish ( I sometimes used meats for sandwiches here…) All steamed and mashed together, usually makes two days worth of dinner )1 or 2 small cereal biscuits, Orange blossom tea in sippy.

1200 – 1330 Play

1330 – 1415 Nap, either in bed, or in car.

1415 – 1515 Shopping or play

1530 50-60 grammes cereal mix (with water to mix) plus half a jar fruit purée for added taste.

1600 – 1830 play

1830 – 1845 8ozs Formula milk

By 1900hrs, give or take some minutes, Ella is in bed, having her back stroked gently until she falls asleep. Roughly ten minutes. Then she generally sleeps all night, if she wakes it’s usually just to give her dummy back to her.

Ps, It’s Ellas daddy who stays at home with her, while Mummy goes to work. Fantastic life. :-D

Feeding schedule for my almost 9 month old

by: Anonymous


This is a rough estimate since some days she will eat way more than this list and other days she won’t eat more than half of whats on this list. Since she’s doing great on her weight, her Dr has said just to leave when / how much she eats up to her.

8:00 AM Wake up
8:15 AM 8 oz bottle of formula
9:30 AM Oatmeal (regular, not baby oatmeal), OR scrambled eggs, OR waffles OR pancakes (really depends on what I’m eating
10:00 AM – noon – 1st nap
12:30 PM – 3rd stage jar of a meat / veggie dinner OR pasta (table food), OR a 2nd stage veggie with a 2nd stage meat.
2:00 PM 8 oz bottle of formula and cheerios or a bitter biscuit
2:30 – 4:30 PM 2nd nap
4:30 PM a bitter biscuit
6:00 PM – food from my plate that is soft enough for her to “chew” (has no teeth) with a sippy with half apple juice half water. If what I’m eating is not appropriate for her, she gets a 3rd stage “dinner” and a 2nd stage fruit.
8:00 PM bath and story
8:30 PM bedtime bottle (8 oz of formula)
9:00 PM bed

need help w twins schedule..
by: Anonymous


This is currently my (almost) 10 month old twins schedule:

Wake up by 7am-6oz bottle w stage two fruit.

9am 2 oz formula w oatmeal (thick) then Nap

Noon 8 oz bottle

2pm stage 2 veggie

4pm 8oz bottle

730pm 6 oz bottle and 2 oz formula w oatmeal (thick)

We give them snacks like puffs, etc thruout the day. And things like pancakes when I make a big breakfast..

My doctor said today they should be having 3 meals a day and to start giving them stage 3 meals, but I’m having a hard time figuring out how to adjust their schedule! Any suggestions?

To the mom with twins
by: Paula (Baby Help Line)


Hi,

I’d suggest you exchange the noon bottle with real food. Then at 2-2.30 pm you give a bottle then foods again at around 5-5.30pm. Then a bottle before bed. Take a look at this feeding schedule, it has worked really well for all my three kids.

Hope this helps,

Paula

schedule

by: Anonymous


i just want to make a reference to all the mothers who say schedules are not that important, referring to late bedtimes and late mornings. U say what is best for u…NO NO NO it’s what is best for the baby. What time is everyone elses breakfast and what time does school start??? 11am??? I don’t think so. Starting them on a good schedule is an excellent pre-crusor to when they HAVE to b on a schedule. My life is now my daughters, she is my world and if i have to change My schedule to accomadate her then thats what i will do. I also work and my husband is a (cop) shift worker so it’s not always easy but that’s parent hood people.

730- 6oz bottle (mandarin oragnes, cheese, bluberries ect)

1030- 4oz bottle then nap

1230- turnip, rutabaga, blueberries, toast

130-6oz bottle

snack (mum mum, cereal cookie ect

430- turkey, squash, potato (all home made food)

730-6oz bottle then bed

101/2 month old – worried about feeding
by: Anonymous


Wakes between 8:30 and 9:30 (usually) and plays for awhile before breakfast

9:30am-10:00 am (Breakfast) – I give him about 3-4 tbsp of whole grain cereal mixed with fruit, plus 3tbsp of 3% plain yogurt.

10:00-11:00 – Usually plays again or we read a book

11:00-12:00 – A 7oz bottle of iron fortified formula and usually 1st Nap.

2:00-2:30 – Usually wakes and plays for 30-45min.

2:30-3:00 – 1/2 jar of gerber baby fruit and 7oz of formula

3:30 to 4:00 – Usually goes down for Nap #2

Wakes anytime between 5:30 and 7:00pm.

Dinner between 8:00-9:00pm- Usually 3/4 or whole jar of gerber vegetables (peas,carrots, squash,etc)AND 1/2 jar gerber fruit.

9:00pm – Bathtime

9:30-11:00pm – 7oz bottle of Formula and Bedtime

** Wakes up EVERY night between 2:00am and 4:00am for 7 oz bottle. Usually drinks most of it and goes back to sleep.**

I am a little worried that he has not embraced any meats or poultry’s yet. Loves his fruits and veggies. And, also Mommy is (almost) terrified to give him finger foods or any solids. He just got his 1st tooth a few days ago and I am so worried he is going to choke. Someone pls tell me what I can give him to start the process. I feel like I am holding him back. Other babies his age seem to be eating alot of foods that their parents are just in smaller portions and sizes.

HELP!! :)

trying solids

by: Anonymous


Don’t be nervous! I feel like no matter how careful u are, they’re gonna choke at some point.. but to start try the gerber puffs. Hell get to chew a little bit, but they basically melt in ur mouth. Then you can start playing around w the different snacks , just stay away from the “wheels”-theyre the worst for choking. You can also try giving him pieces of bread to start w some finger foods. But u definitely want to get him started since he should be eating solids and pretty much dropping the baby foods at 1 year.

As for the meat…if he just doesn’t like the jarred ones I wouldn’t be too concerned. I tried for months to get my twins to eat the stage 3 meals, and they refused. By 11 months I started giving them pieces of actual chicken and whatnot and they’re fine. I mean honestly, can u blame them for not wanting to eat that stuff?! Lol.

A good book to help: first foods by anabel kebel (I’m pretty sure that’s the last name, but its GREAT!!)

Hope this helps!!

10 Months
by: Anonymous


These are all approximate times, but my little guy kind of put himself on a schedule from day one! It’s nice most of the time… until you have to run to the store and it overlaps when he thinks he should be eating.. lol!

6:30 am – 6 ounce bottle

8:30 am – fruit & oatmeal (daycare only does purees until 12 months but I do finger foods at home)

9:30 am – nap time (scheduled at daycare)

10:30 – 4 ounce bottle (which he never finishes)

12:00 – fruit & veggies & rice (again, all puree at daycare)

1:00 – nap time

2:00 – 4 ounce bottle

3:00 – snack time (cheerios, crackers, or puffs)

5:00 – 4 ounce bottle

6:30 – 3-4 ounces of pureed meat & veggies, and than an assortment of finger foods like fruit, hot dogs, crackers, veggies, rice puffs, etc. I use this as a skill building time to feed himself as well so we try lots of things.

7:00 – bath time

8:30 – 6 ounce bottle and bed time

1:30pm diaper change, 4-5oz formula, stage 2 food (fruit with veggies, straight veggies, yogurt, so on).

3:00pm nap time

5:30pm diaper change, 4-5oz formula, stage 2 veggies or veggies with meat (sweet potato & chicken or turkey, so on).

7:00pm bed time

10:30pm usually starts to fuss in her sleep wanting a “midnight snack”…
diaper change, 7-8oz. formula

(she will sleep straight through the 7/8 hours after I feed her at 10:30pm, until 5:30am)

Snacks:

In betweem meals I will give my daughter cereal puffs like Gerber banana, sweet potato, peach, apple, or so on puffs, that melt easily if she forgets to chew, which she does (all babies forget to chew sometimes).

The puffs containers say 75 or 90 pieces are a serving, but I usually only give her between 10 and 20.

I will give my daughter a sippy cup with 1/4 gerber juice (apple or pear), and the rest water, and she will sip on it between lunch and dinner, and after dinner until bed time.

why no formula when baby wakes up?

by: Anonymous


I know the first thing I need when I get up is something to drink. Why don’t some of you give your baby a small amount of formula in a bottle or cup with breakfast? That seems very strange to go all night and wake eat to oatmeal and never have anything to drink. Do you not drink anything when you eat breakfast? Seems really strange that mothers would forget that a baby is probably thirsty after sleeping 10 hours.

I can’t believe how some moms can be!!!

by: Anonymous


So I’m a mom myself, I put my babie to sleep by nine & guess what he is such a smart babie pretty advance for his age & I’m amazed of what a great eater he is!!! And I don’t breast feed him simply because he left breastfeeding at 4 months Does that make me a bad mom – NO!!! There’s isn’t a perfect mom such as there’s no perfect human alive in this world!! Moms that are seeking for help is because they care for they’re little one… They don’t seek for help to be judge!!!

FRESH IS BEST

by: mama mayhem


i see so many of these comments including LOTS of cow dairy in the baby’s diet….have you researched the long term and short term effects of feeding babies cheese slices? cottage cheese? egg whites? these things contribute to many negative changes in the human body.
<3 im sure you will be interested and i hope that you research!
my daughter is 10 months old and drinks EVERY formula bottle with COCONUT WATER/MILK instead of regular water. My baby has juice that I juice fresh from our fruit trees. Or organic apple juice by Martinellis
7:30am- wake up, play, 6oz bottle, fresh fruit
8:30am- pear, apple, strawberry, mango slices
10:00am – 4-6oz coconut water no formula
11:00am- 6oz formula, nap
1:00pm- RAW diced veggie, squash, broc, mushrooms along with fresh berries, apple or pear
3:00pm-4 oz formula
6:00pm- dinner is always yummy and shareable, we DO NOT give our baby pork or red meat. We know she loves Sweet potatos, grilled onions, kale, spinach, salmon.
8:00pm- bath, 8 oz formula
