LOL ok so last week I posted a new feeding scheduale for my 11.5 month old dd.
I was trying to up her liquid intake since she went from 10oz of whole milk a day and 40oz of formula a day, to only drinking like 6-8oz of whole milk a day. She will not touch formula anymore.
So I am now able to get in 2 1/2 cups to 3 cups of whole milk a day...yay, plus 1/2 cup of water and every second day 1/2 cup of juice. So she is now getting around 20oz of liquid a day, instead of 6-8oz. Thank god. lol
Then her she has 3 meals and 3 snacks.
This was yesterdays feedings.
7am breakfast. 1/2 cup of milk, 1 hard boiled eggs, toast with unsalted butter, handful of cheerios
9am snack, 1/2 cup of water, 3 strawberries, 1/4 c of plain yogurt
11:45 lunch, 1/2 c milk, 3 mini chicken meatballs (made with cilantro,carrots,onion,garlic seasonings) served on plain alphabet pasta, green bean steamed, with broccoli.
Nap time is 12-4pm
4pm snack, 1/2 cup juice, crackers and hummus, some gerber puffs
5:30 dinner, 1/2c of milk, pork stir fry, with spinach, white rice, carrots, cauliflower, yellow bean and sweet peppers, seasonings. Pineapple and mango for dessert.
7pm snack, a bowl of cheerios with 1/4 c of milk in it.
Bedtime is 8pm till 7am.
I am so happy that she took to her new feeding scheduale, I was getting worried that she would never drink more then 8oz a day anymore and just fill up on foods. lol I hope it sticks, it took a few days to convince her to drink more fluids. well almost 2 weeks, but at least I found something that works. lol

With her being so young, I can understand your concern. I think his type of cup might be coming into play. I got him Thames because they don't leak, like at all, but I think they're harder for him to drink fromthanhis previous ones. I know he would live straw sippies but I haven't seen one that I'm afraid wont leak. I need to do some researchin'.quote
