I've got a 19wk old. I started weaning at 17 weeks n she quickly moved into 2 meals. She feeds:
7am bottle
10am bottle n breakfast
1pm bottle n lunch
4.30 bottle
7.30 bottle n bed
She takes 7 ounces at each feed n has about 2 cubes of purée each meal. Is this too much? Also when she goes on to 3 meals (around 6 months) do i drop a bottle feed n should I change her meal times as a friend suggested:
7am bottle
9 breakfast &bottle
12 lunch
4 bottle
5.30 dinner
7.30 bottle
Would this work or are milk feeds too far apart? So confused n worrying about it prob too much?! shock

8 - breakfast
12-lunch
1.30 - milk
5 - dinner
6.30 milk

i need to introduce a 10am and 3pm snack now he's 9months

I don't mean to sound critical, but why did you wean early? If there's a medical reason then you should ask your HV about quantities and timings. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry too much. All food before a year is just exploratory really, and current advice is not to wean at all until 6 months. You don't need to worry about him getting enough food as he doesn't really need any.
