Typical Day’s Food Intake
When you are first introducing solid foods to your baby, you may be offering them once or twice a day. Over the next several months, as your baby learns to eat from a spoon and is taking in more with each feeding, he will slowly be working toward a regular mealtime schedule. His intake of breast milk or formula will slowly decrease, as his intake of solid foods increases.
By about 9 months of age, your baby’s daily meal pattern should include 3 meals and 2-3 snacks each day.
Typically, that means breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner. Your baby may likely breastfeed or take a bottle before bed, too. The following table provides a sample menu of what a typical day’s intake might look like for your little one.
