My 5.5 month old DD has been on solids for a month now. She has two meals a day and my paed said to start her on 3 meals a day at 5.5 months, but I'm unsure what times to feed her. At the moment this is generally what she eats and drinks:
8am 150ml bottle 1/3 rafferty packet of fruit purée
11:30am 200ml bottle
3:00pm 150ml bottle and 1/3 packet of raffertys mixed veg purée
6:00pm 150ml bottle
7:00pm top up feed then bed.
Then 2x 200ml bottles during the night.
I'm I sure whether I should start to give her lunch after her 11:30 feed so I can give her dinner at the 6:00pm feed (meaning she will just have a bottle at 3:00pm)
Or should I keep the same routine but add dinner at her 6:00pm feed?
Either way I feel like she will be having 2 meals too close together. What do most other people do?
She doesn't have a constant routine, the above is just rough timings, but I need to ensure she still gets an afternoon nap where she wakes about 5 and also goes to bed for the night at 7, so I'm worried about how I change the current bottle and meal arrangement just in case it messes up those two sleeps
