Going From Bottle to Solid

Sometimes people wonder how others went from formula/breastmilk to solids, so I just wanted to make a short post about what it looked like for us.

  • Bottles (he was formula fed)
  • Around 4 months with approval from pediatrician to start food: Morning bottle, afternoon bottle, 4oz of baby food for dinner with smaller bottle, night bottle + middle of the night bottle
  • Around 6 months: Morning bottle, 4oz baby food for lunch and small bottle, 4oz of baby food for dinner with rice cereal, before bed bottle + Cheerios/puffs throughout + middle of the night bottle
  • Later: Small breakfast (details later) with morning bottle, baby food for lunch and water from sippy cup, baby food for dinner and water from sippy cup, before bed bottle + Cheerios/puffs/snacks/our food throughout + Middle. Of. The. Night. Bottle! (He held on for a while)
  • Breakfast with water from sippy cup, baby food for lunch and water from sippy cup, baby food for dinner + water from sippy cup, before bed bottle + Cheerios/puffs/snacks/our food throughout
  • Breakfast, Lunch, baby food for dinner + water from sippy cup, before bed bottle + Cheerios/puffs/snacks/our food throughout
  • Breakfast with “milk (we’ve given him plant-based milk products for the most part),” lunch and dinner both with water from sippy cup and a before bed bottle + Cheerios/puffs/snacks/our food throughout
  • Breakfast with “milk,” lunch and dinner both with water from sippy cup and before bed “milk” + Cheerios/puffs/snacks/our food throughout
