Re: Sample Schedules for 9 mo. old
Here's our typical day:
Almost 9 mo. Old DD is on the following schedule, thanks mostly to day care:
6:30 am – DH wakes her up and feeds her, 5-6 oz. bottle usually.
9:30 am – daycare (DC) feeds bottle (4-5 oz), cereal and fruit.
(nap from 10 - 11, usually)
Noon-ish – DC feeds bottle (4-5 oz), cereal, fruit and veggie.
(nap from 2 - 3, usually)
3:30 p.m. – DC feeds bottle… you guessed it, 4-5 oz.
(sleeps in car... I hate that I can't control this!)
6:00 p.m. – Dinner at home – usually cereal, ½ container of stage 2 or 3 fruit, veggie and a “meal in a jar”, although lately we’re starting to feed her a few table food items when we eat dinner (like a whole green bean or steamed pieces of carrot as opposed to a pureed one…) Dessert is Gerber puffs, Cheerios or graham cracker. (She’s teething, usually she just gnaws on the graham cracker.)
7:30 – 7:45 p.m. – last bottle of the day (6 oz or so) – sleeps from 8 ish until 6:30; 7:30 on the weekends.
Weekends are different at our house – She usually will eat only 3 bottles because we try to stagger solid foods and bottle – she tends to eat solids better if she’s not already full of formula! Typically, she takes in about 18-24 oz of formula a day, but I’m not worried because she’s not exactly losing weight or anything. (Chunk-a-lunk is her affectionate nickname.)
Hope that helps – was more long-winded than I intended!
