    Default Solids at 6months - how many times a day?

    Did you feed your baby breakfast, lunch and dinner? How much do you feed your baby?

    My little one is almost 6mths but has been on solids for 7 weeks. I'm unsure whether I should be feeding her 3 meals a day and when to increase the amount. We give her two cubes of frozen food and she's content, she doesn't turn her head when finished but does eat it all.

    I started out with just breakfast... Then slowly increased to lunch and dinner when he seemed interested.

    I did BLW so not sure how many cubes, but he would eat roughly 1/2 a banana in the beginning. If he finished it off easily id offer him more until he was finished

    DS is 6.5 months and been on solids since 4.5 months. He's having breakfast and dinner now. His appetite has just increased a lot in the last week so he'd be having about 4 cubes a meal, but 2 weeks ago I was heating up 3 and there'd be some leftover. He also often gets a little bit of finger food in the middle of the day but not much of that gets swallowed.

    I like to feed him until he lets me know he's had enough (stops opening his mouth after he's swallowed) so often heat up a bit more than I think he'll want.
