    When I started DD on solids I just gave her some whenever we were eating. So breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks/when I was cooking..
    I doubt she ever got full. The floor and her wore most of it most of the time but I always thought food before one was just getting them used to different tastes/textures through play, so it never crossed my mind tbh.
    Now she eats full meals her tummy sticks out afterward, kind of like a food baby.

    My first was only tasting things at 6 months - yogurt, purée fruit...
    My second was totally not interested and didn't start solids til 8 months
    What's your baby's interest in food like?

    Dd1 was 2-3 times a day, after a bottle if she was still hungry

    Dd2 only just started at 6 months so 1 a day after a bottle

    Dd3 was the same as dd2

    Dd4 had zero interest at 6 months so none. She is 8 months now and just starting 1 day.

    At 6 months they dont really need it, more just start to introduce it, and it shouldn't replace bottle/breast feeds.

    Okay awesome I started DS on solids when he was 5 months just a teaspoon of rice cereal a day, he has puréed foods and still cereal for breakfast although I do get those squeezy tubes of food to see what he likes before I make a batch of them.. But he will eat 2 squeezy tubes if I let him I just dunno if he's getting enough especially with teething at the moment but he eats, breakfast,lunch, snacks and only has milk for dinner

    Yeah I agree I got told by my health nurse to feed him more plus he gets so distracted feeding (breastfed) so I have no idea how much he is having

    I am very very loosely following the routine in SOS.

    ETA: he was interested in solids after only a few attempts so at 6 months he was pretty established as we started at 5 months

    At 6 months DS wasn't very interested in food so I was just trying a teaspoon or two of baby porridge after his mid morning feed to try to get him used to the idea of food and how to eat.

    Our 6mth old schedule:

    7am - milk

    10:30am - milk

    11:15/11:30am - porridge with pureed fruit (3 big cubes)

    3pm - milk

    5pm - pureed veg, yogurt

    6:30/7pm - milk

    9:15pm - milk top up

    In the next few weeks...9:15pm bottle will go, will add beef and pasta to dinner mix, will start up a breakfast meal as well so there will be three meals a day.

    Forgot to add - I usually start first food after the morning tea bottle.
