So as the title suggests I am wanting to know is there a guide to how much EBM to be giving once solids are introduced.
Ds was 6 months on 23rd April and has been having solids for four weeks now. He mostly has baby food (homemade though) in the traditional sense but we have also been experimenting with finger foods but find when he is actually hungry he won't have a bar of them.
So I breastfeed him then about an hour after the milk feed I give him his food. He usually has 3 or 4 tablespoons and I think if I let him he would keep eating alot more. He has breaky, lunch and dinner.
I got him weighed today and he has put on 590gms in 12 days which is massive compared to his usual 90-100gms per week he was previously gaining.
I am now back at work two days a week and he has EBM while I'm gone and I have no idea how much to give him. Previously I worked on the 150mls x kg / number of feeds per day.
But if formula fed the information from child health says they only need 600mls per day so I'm thinking that the above formula is no longer accurate.
