Re: How much milk should 8th month old baby drink apart from solids?
Ampu, this is the advice I followed while introducing solids:
An excerpt from the link.
I would think he will do better nutrition wise with two additional sessions. Just my two cents. For Babies 7 to 9 months of age: Watch baby's cues, but be careful not to go "too fast" with too many solids. Some babies will do fine with a little "meal" every few days, every other day, or every day, for weeks after beginning solids. This is fine. Other babies may increase to daily solids pretty quickly.
- How much breastmilk should my baby be getting?
At 7 to 8 months, at least 5 nursings in 24 hr period;
- Early morning: breastmilk (nursing)
- Breakfast: At least one hour after nursing;
1-2 tbsp infant cereal or whole grain cooked oatmeal,
top off with cup (oz or two) of breastmilk, water, or nurse again if desired.
- Midmorning: Nurse, then half an hour or hour later,
can offer 1/4 cup unsweetened fruit juice,
Snack ideas may include a 1/4 slice dry toast or 1 cracker, hand full of dry cheerios, or a graham cracker.
When a child fails to behave appropriately, is not a reflection of a parentís lack of commitment or skill. It is not an indication that the child is lacking in any way. It is simply a facet of humanness. - Elizabeth Pantley in No-cry Discipline Solution book
