I am still struggling with solids with DS, but it is improving. He will be 9 months old this week (yikes, I can't believe it!!) and am wondering when the ratio of solids/formula changed. If I give him 3 solids meals a day, his intake of formula obviously decreases. Right now with 2 meals he is only getting about 20oz per day. When is it ok for the formula to decrease even further? Thanks so much!
My Ryder's ped told us that by his 1st b-day he should be getting most of his nutrition from solids. Now, Ryder gets about 6 bottles a day. She said that he should be down to 4 bottles/day by his 1st b-day.
