I'm concerned with how much my 6 month old DS is drinking. He has started solids and I know that 'food is fun till they're one' but I can't force him to drink more. For the last 4 days his routine has been as follows:
7am wake and 200ml bottle
8am 4 tablespoons solids
11-11:30am wake and 200ml bottle
3:30-4pm wake and 200ml bottle
5pm 4 tablespoons solids
My concern is that he won't have his bottle before bed. He is only having 600mls whereas he 'should' be having around 1000mls. Note I'm not trying to drop his bottle but I can't force him to drink it.
Do I a) introduce lunch, offer water when he wakes up in the afternoon and push formula till before bed time? b) introduce lunch, give a smaller bottle when he wakes up in the afternoon and offer the 200ml bottle before bed? c) leave it as it is? d) something else?
Suggestions? Thoughts? TIA!
