Food routine - 9 month old??!!

This is how it goes:

10am - Fruit pot

12.30pm - 6oz milk

3.30pm - 6oz milk

5pm - pureed veg/chicken

Shes not been fast on solid food, still not great with textures. Is this routine good? bad?

Well my two are slightly older than your LO but here's our routine and it works really well for us. They are gaining weight at a nice steady rate (according to our HV) and are never hungry - plus they sleep right through for us which is even better

7am - 9oz bottle
8:30am - piece toast
10:30am - breakfast jar (usually heinz creamed porridge or banana & apple b/fast)
12:30-13:00 - Savoury Jar (this can be anything - shepherds pie, spag bol, chicken curry - they'll pretty much eat anything as we have always made sure that we introduce lots of flavours and textures
15:00 - fruit pot
17:00 - rice cake/rusk
19:00-19:30 - 8/9oz bottle before bed

Edit: - BTW, they have juice or water throughout the day - your routine sounds just fine hun - ther's no right or wrong, just what works for you and your LO xx

Ozzie is on:

10am - bf
12pm - Slice of toast and a mashed banana
3pm - bf
5pm - Whatever meal we eat put through the blender and a yougart

Bf through the night.

I'm lucky that Ozzie has been very accepting of trying solids, my other two weren't as easy.
