Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

5m old eating enough?!?!

1 answers
How many ounces should my 5month old be eating? The doc said she can have baby food twice a day now but shes eating less formula. So how often should i feed her or does she even need the same amount now that shes eating baby food? Im a new mother so any input is really helpful. Thank u.

I don't give formula, but I just read in the book "Starting Solids" by Annabel Karmel, that formula-fed babies should continue to take at least 28 ounces of formula a day when starting on solid food, but will gradually take less as solids replace the calories and nutrients. Hope that helps some!
