Just a quick one... what is your babies routine with food & milk?
My son is 10 months old and only recently he has gotten into a good routine with solid foods, It was really hard to get him introduced to foods. I started weaning him at the recommended 6 months and it took me 4 months to get him into a good eating routine. In the morning at about 7:30 - 8:00 he will have a normal 7oz bottle but most of that is mixed in with his breakfast and he'll have the last few ounces after he's eaten, he'll have either fruit or a yogurt at about 10 then at 12:30 he'll have his lunch either some finger food or a jar and a small 3oz bottle at about 3:00 he'll have another 7oz bottle and half a biscuit if he is still hungry, 5:30 - 6:00 is dinner again he'll have whatever we eat or a jar if it is to spicy or isn't suitable for him and some finger food to pick on, then a small 3oz bottle. 8:00 is bedtime so he'll have a 6oz bottle of his goodnight milk and then 1oz of his normal milk which makes his 7oz bottle, sometimes in the day he'll have an extra bottle but that just depends on how hungry he's feeling.
Anyone else got a routine established quick or struggled?

5pm-dinner.half jar and half/whole orange
7pm-9oz bottle xx
I struggled for a bit whilst LO was still having four bottles - mainly just to fit the timings in around naps as nothing seemed to work. Once he was drinking less of his four bottles I dropped one and it all fell into place much better. This is our routine:
7:30/8am - breakfast. Usually porridge/cereal and a small amount of juice.
9/9:30am - 7oz bottle
10/10:30am - nap
12pm - lunch. Usually some homemade food or finger food/sandwich etc and yoghurt
2/2:30pm - 7oz bottle
3/3:30pm - nap
5pm - dinner. Usually homemade food or a jar.
7pm - 8oz bottle and bed.
As he's started crawling recently he's getting more tired so has started his morning nap a bit earlier sometimes and therefore can fit in another nap after his lunch. Luckily his food/milk routine still seems to work around this.
6.30 - bottle 7-8oz
9.00 - breakfast - usually porridge and a little bit of toast
11.00 - nap
12.30 - Lunch - a fruit pot, youghert and some bread and cheese/corn snacks or a baby biscuit.
2.30 - 3.00 - nap
4.00 - bottle 6-8oz
6.00 - dinner An ellas kitchen pouch or homemade dinner
8.00 - bottle and bed.
Plus occational snacks of fruit or cornsnacks.
Sometimes he has an extra 30min nap after his morning bottle.
07:30 4-5oz follow-on milk
9:00 Porridge with fruit/baby brekkie etc
11:30 5-7oz follow-on milk
01:30 meat&veg puree (havnt managed lumps yet, she just throws up ) +fruit pot
03:30 3-5oz follow-on milk
5:30 cauliflour cheese/meat&veg puree and a yoghurt/dessert
07:30 5-7oz follow-on milk
She falls asleep for the night drinking last bottle.
We were doing ok with a couple of spoonfuls of lumpy food a few days ago, just gagging, no throwing up, but then she got an ear infection so I dont wanna force the lump issue while she is unwell. Will be trying again next week though. xx

4 pm - snack - usually some fruit (melon slices, apple, pear etc) and a biscotti
6 pm - tea - same as lunch
