    Default Food & milk

    Hello everyone, just wondering, if you have given bub a meal or snack do you offer milk soon after or do you count that as a separate thing.

    Thank you

    How old is bub? Ds is 7.5 months old and has solids 3 times a day. He's a good eater and loves his food. I usually leave it awhile after solids to offer milk unless he wants it first. I offer him water after his meals. He still gets 3 to 4 bottles of milk per day.

    At that age I usually offered milk before solids, usually at least an hour before. Though now I kind of just do what is convienent but I'm trying to gently wean him from his midday feed so I try to offer him solids first. Ds is 15 months now.

    My MCHN advised me to only offer milk first, first thing in the morning. Lunch and dinner bottles come after solids at that age. My ds is 12 months. I usually wait 1 or 1.5 hours after solids to offer bottle or sooner if he is grumbling for it.

    At this age op I would offer solids first then milk as food should be becoming more important. I give my bub porridge for breakfast, a fruit based meal for lunch and a vegie based meal for dinner. I include a meat in his dinner a few times a week. He also has a cruskit, piece of toast or milk arrowroot biscuit occassionally as a snack.

    Do you use normal porridge or blitz it?
