For the first year any solids are just to get the child used to a spoon and textures, their primary nutrition source is still breast milk or formula. I was always told to wait until 6 months for any solids, although a small amout of rice cereal could be started a little earlier. Never substitute a breast or bottle feed with a jar of food. Make sure he/she gets the same amount of formula as before, if they seem full - omit the jar food.

you will possibly desire to no longer be putting cereal in the toddlers foodstuff. docs now say to no longer try this. additionally my son is 4 months old on the 25 and he eats 4oz each 3-4 hours. 8oz sounds like a lot. Water is large and till your wellness care professional suggested the ok for juice do no longer the two. they might start up ingesting cereal at that age in basic terms no longer in the bottle!

Solids should not take out a feeding, especially at 4 months. It is just to teach them to eat with a spoon. They should still nurse/get formula just as much as before the solids.

The same as before. The baby is growing, so the solids are a supplement to the milk. By the way, enjoy the new diaper smell. :)

Ideally, you should be nursing on demand, and delaying solids until six months.

A bottle with breakfast, one mid morning, one at lunch time, one midafternoon, one with supper and one for bedtime.
