At 11 months he can start to eat finger foods and regular foods cut up in small pieces and he can start to feed himself (with his hands) at 3 meals a day. Suggest trying a 'sippy' cup instead of the bottle, at meals, for his formula or milk. As a guideline for a 11-12 month old child should eat the following: Breast-milk or Formula (8oz) 3-5 feedings a day, Dairy 1 serving a day – cheese (1/2 oz) or yogurt (1/2 cup). Starch 2 feedings a day – Infant Cereal (2-4 Tbsp), bread (1/2 slice), crackers (2), or pasta (3-4 Tbsp). Fruits or Vegetables 2-3 feedings a day – (3-4 Tbsp). Meat 2 feedings a day – 3-4 Tbsp) or beans (1/4 cup). If he does not want the bottle then give him more food 3 times a day with snacks between meals so he is getting the proper nutrition.
