At what age did you start feeing your child solids? My daughter is just 8 months and is down to 4 bottles a day and only 5 oz in each bottle. She has a HUGE spitting up issue and I have tried every single formula, breast milk medication offered and nothing has helped. at 6 months I started solids and she loves it. Is their a suggested amount of formula that should be consumed daily? I just want to make sure she is getting enough nutrients from the formula but she can only drink 5 oz because if I give her more it just flows right back out
Normally a baby would need to be getting the majority of their nutrition from formula until a year, and food would just be for practice. But in your daughter's case I think I would ask her doctor about being referred to a nutritionist. She obviously has a special circumstance and I would just feel safer talking to a professional of I were you. Good luck!
The Dr thinks its just a faulty flap and she is just a Spitter -upper! I had to go behind her back to another Dr in the office to treat her for possible acid reflux. We tried the medication for about 1 month and no change in the spitting up so I discontinued using it. She gains weight so they are not worried about her in that Dept.
I feed her a bottle when she wakes up 5 oz
and around 1 to 2 hours later I feed her 2 small scoops of baby oatmeal and a jar of baby food 4 oz (fruit) about 3 hours later another 5 oz bottle. Lunch at 12 2 scoops of oatmeal with baby food (veggie ) 4oz depending on how she feels she sometimes takes a bottle 5oz. 3 hours later another bottle and dinner at 4:30 2 scoops of oatmeal and 4oz jar of baby food usually meat/veggies. She goes to bed so early! every night around 5 she is DONE and gets up at 5/6 the next day. So its not like their really is any more hours in the day for her to consume more food....
