My LO is 7.5 months and this is what she seems to do:
7.30am-bottle (probably has about 120ml)
8am-breakfast (usually porridge or baby rice & fruit puree)
9.30am-nap for 1-2 hrs
sometimes will try to give another bottle at this point but she won't have much so don't always offer it.
12pm-lunch (veg puree (lumpier now) and petit filous. Maybe some nibbly finger food bits too)
2pm-bottle followed by nap (if she'll have one!)
5pm-dinner (veg followed by fruit puree)
6.30pm - bottle (240ml) & bed
She's definitely wanting less formula and more food now she's getting a taste for it. She usually wakes up some time in the night (I still count 5am as night!) for a bottle but sometimes will sleep through.
Leo has his 3rd meal at 6pm, we can time it with ours then!
Here's are routine..
8am : Wakes up
8.30am : 7oz bottle
9am - 10.30am : Nap
11am : Breakfast (either porridge, muesli, weetabix or cheerios!)
1pm - 2pm : Nap
2.30pm : Lunch (some kind of homemade veggie puree followed by a fruit puree or a petit filous and then some finger food snacks like rice cakes etc)
3.30pm : 7oz bottle
4pm - 5pm : Nap
6pm - Tea (whatever we are having, not pureed)
7.30pm : Bath (every other night)
8.30pm : 8oz bottle
9pm : Bedtime! (sleeps through til 8am)
Sounds like they're all pretty similiar which is good! x x x
We do BLW
06:00 bottle (210 ml)
07:00-07:30 wakes up

11-11:30 bottle (210 ml)
13:00 lunch ( whatever I eat, usually veg with some meat/fish/chicken)
14:50 bottle (200ml)
15:00 nap for 2 hours
17:00 snack (fruit with mummy on the sofa)
18:00 dinner (toast with something and some veg/fruit and muffin)
20:00 bottle (270 ml)
20:05 he is totally asleep!
Ours is below, these are v much 'ish' times, I'm not super strict with her routine but it seems to have made itself!
7 am Out of cot and play with mummy and daddy in bed for a bit
7.45 Breakfast - Usually porridge then about 180mls milk
9am nap for 45 mins- 1 hour
11.45 Lunch - homemade something, today she had chicken and parsnip then a fruit puree. About 180mls milk. Trying to get her to use a sippy cup for water/juice, not going well so far!
1pm Nap for 45 mins-1 hour
3.45 Tea - finger foods first, usually toast fingers with dairylea and some steamed veg, she doesn't eat much of this tho it usually goes all over her and the floor (which is fine!) then another homemade pureed thing with some yoghurt or a fruit puree. This meal takes aaaaages but I like to let her mess with her food! I often bath her after cos she is a mucky pup! Then about 180mls milk.
5 - sometimes a short nap, she doesn't always need it.
6.45 - Bath if not already had one.
7.15 - Milk, 210 mls
7.45 Bed. She tends to sleep through until about 6.30, we let her squeak in her cot for a bit!
Ours is pretty similar too! The timings are all 'ish' but our LO seems to be following this pattern at the moment:
6.30 - Wakes & has a feed (BF)
8.00 - Breakfast (porridge or cereal followed by pieces of fruit & a sippy cup of water)
10 - Nap (30mins)
11 - Bottle (180mls)
12.30 - Lunch (salad finger bits, with 2x mini rice cakes, a yoghurt & water)
2.00 - Nap (30/45mins)
3.30 - Bottle (180mls)
5.30 - Tea (selection of veg, meat & toast fingers or whatever we're having & water)
6.15 - Story-time
6.45 - Bath
7.00 - Bottle (180mls)
7.30 - Asleep
She either sleeps through or wakes once for a BF, though if she wakes the time isn't consistent. I've been advised to see if the waking once is actual hunger or just her trying to keep my supply going by offering her cooled boiled water instead of a BF for a few nights. I'm not sure about this as I'm of the view that when she's ready to sleep through, she'll do it. Any advice on this would be great!
