Our little critter is nearly 6 months and a couple of weeks ago we followed his cues and introduced solids.
He loves the solids, so far we're giving farex at b/fast and puree'd veges at dinner time.
But we're still not really able to break through the 3 hourly feed cycle. Which means bottle + farex at 6-7ish in the morn, then a bottle around 10-11, then another around 2-3, then bottle + puree around 5-6, then a topup around 8 and then another at 12-1am, then at 4-5am ... and repeat.
He usually has around 120ml of formula at each feed. So the 210ml per feed, and 3-4 feeds a day on the formula can isn't happening ...
He's really after solids at every feed, we're sort of holding back a bit to just 2 doses of solids per day as we don't want to compromise the formula feed.
Should we just go with the flow and give him solids 3x a day? He's very plump, no issues with weight and size and generally pretty happy.
Lastly, any tips on how to get the sleeping through thing happening. It's really wearing us out. Our first son (now 5.5) was great and just slotted into these things easily.
