    Simeon is 8 months, but he is pretty much on what we eat now so I thought I'd post what he's eating as he will probably be on the same next month. :D

    His routine is:

    Morning: 8oz milk, porridge
    Mid morning: 4oz milk
    Lunch: Cheese on toast / Home made tuna pasta / sandwiches and a fruit puree
    Afternoon: 4oz milk and sometimes an organic biscuit (for babies) depending on how much he had for lunch
    Dinner: Anything we have chopped up usually - such as Salmon, potatoes and veggies / chicken, rice, veggies / mild curry / pasta and a fromage frais for dessert.
    Before bed: 8oz milk

    :) x

    Wow, I feel like David's menus are so boring, now! Here's a typical day:

    Breakfast -- 4 oz baby yogurt
    Lunch -- 1 jar stage 3 baby food (usually pasta or some kind of meat/veg one)
    Dinner -- Fruit and wheat roll

    And breastfeeding on demand.

    Breakfast - quite a large bowl of porridge or 1 and a half weetabix with milk

    Mid morning - A small biscuit or yogurt

    Lunch - Either a whole stage 3 jar if we are out and about or 1 slice of toast with 1 scrambled egg or similar

    Mid afternoon - another yogurt or some fruit

    5pm - 8oz bottle

    Dinner - some of whatever we're having or a whole stage 3 jar and usually a bit of custard or something sweet for pudding

    Up until 10 1/2 months she was also having a 6oz bottle with breakfast but she decided around this age she didnt want it anymore.

    7-8am breastfeed
    9-10am 1/2 weetabix or porridge made with whole cows milk and some fruit puree mixed in and 1 piece brown toast with unsalted butter
    1-2pm lunch is normally brown bread sandwich with filling of cheese spread/avocado/tuna and fruit (banana/blueberrys/peach/melon) and a fromage frais (sainsburys own brand)
    afternoon snack biscuit (organix rusk or similar) and a breastfeed before nap
    5-6pm steamed veg (carrot/brocolli/califlower/peas/sweet potato mash) with trout/chicken or portion or whatever we're eating (home made lasange/cottage pie etc) and more fruit or banana porridge
    7-8 breastfeed

    water from a sippy cup with all her meals and throughout the day
    she recently has gone off being fed from a spoon (wants to do it herself - very messy...) so most of her food has got to be finger food at the moment!
    also sometimes i worry about how much milk she is drinking as obviously being breastfed i havent a clue how much she is actually drinking so let her have boobie whenever she want it during the day too...
