It is good she is eating 3 solid meals and she is breast feeding. At 11 months she can start to eat finger foods and regular foods cut up in small pieces and she can start to feed herself (with her hands) at 3 meals a day. Suggest trying a 'sippy' cup instead of the bottle, at meals, for her 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 she does not want the bottle then give her more dairy food as above 3 times a day so she is getting the proper nutrition. Hoped this helped you.
