Day 193 - Serving Sizes

Today's first time parenting tip - Make sure your baby is getting the right amounts of the foods he needs

Now that you're well into giving your baby solid foods, you're probably wondering what the right amount of food to give him is. It's important to give him a variety of fruits, vegetables and cereals.

Cereal - 2 feedings of 4 tablespoons of cereal mixed with 4-5 ounces of milk, water or formula
Fruit and Vegetables - 5 servings (8-8.5 ounces)

We usually give him a feeding of cereal and fruit first thing in the morning, and then feed him all his vegetables for lunch, and then give him the last cereal feeding right before bed. That way if he's fussy or doesn't feel like sitting up for a feeding, we can try again later in the day when he's in a better mood.
