    Hello mommies...

    my DD IS running 6 months now. She will have her annaprasan somtime this month. This has been her feeding schedule so far. i am so confused and worried if i am feeding her enough.

    Morning 7 AM : Formula
    10 am : cereal rice - 2 tbsp and 2 oz formula/BM
    between 1: 30 and 2 --- formula 4 oz

    around 4 -- carrots first food
    around 5 - another 2 tbsp of rice cereal
    around 8---- 4 oz formula

    i pump utmost 8 oz of BM and feed her during the intervals just before her nap.

    Am i feeding her less than what she can have
    if yes what else can i add...

    when can i start fruit and which timing should i add that

    my grand mother wants me to start puzghungal arice kanji ( its a tamil name ) not sure if everone can understand.

    when to introduce that?

    Hope my question are clear ?

    tell me one thing....

    she has about 5 oz formula when she wakes up around 7.
    she sleep by 10 and does not feed formala but she feed may be around 5 oz over the night.

    then around 10 or 11 she get about 2-3 tbsp of rice cereal mixed with 2-2 oz of formula.
    then she sleep and then i give her carrots.

    then around 4 i pump and give her 3 formula

    then again i give her the rice cereal

    then she has formula - 4 oz by 8"30 and sleeps

    i feel guilty than i not feeding enough milk....what do say.....

    should i change anything.

    2 days back she had hard bowel moment when i called the doctor she said it could be due to rice cereal which is hard to belive as i have been giving it to her for over 3 week now.

    should i change to oats.

    when should introduce fruits.

    i am so confused.

    please suggest

    mitsivi, maybe instead of giving formula with cereal u can give formula as is, in more amount.... i]dont see a need to give solids so often at 6 months.
    at 6 months my baby was taking veggie/fruit purees for lunch and thats it.IF u want u can give a few scoops in the evening ,and call it dinner.

    so maybe u can schedule like this,

    7 am - formula
    10 am -formula
    12.30-1 lunch
    4 pmormula/expressed milk
    7 pm -baby cereal with formula/water
    breastfeed the baby to sleep...
    sometime in the night, breastfeed/formula if ur baby wants
