Our ds is 10.5 months and this is his routine, more or less.  I'm trying to work on giving him more finger foods, or diced foods, but he seems to like taking everything but bread off a spoon!

~615/630 - 6oz formula
~700/725 - 1/2 Cup baby cereal w. ~ 2-3 tbsp fruit mixed in (use about 1-2oz of formula in cereal)
~1000 - 6oz formula
~1130 - 1/2 Cup meat/veggie meal of some description.  Either bottled or homemade.
         - 1/4 cup fruit or yogurt
~1400 - 6oz formula
~1500 - snack of a baby mum-mum, bread stick, pita....varies
~1700 - 1/2 Cup meat/veggie mix, or 1/2 pasta/cheese meal.  Tends to vary.
          - 1/4 cup fruit or yogurt.
         - has cheerios or pita bread to start off with.
~1830 - 6oz formula and to bed he goes until ~ 0600 the next morning (cross fingers)

He also has water from a sippy cup at just about every meal -- he loves water!!

Ok before I post our feeding routine I have a question! What types of cheese are okay to give the little ones right now. Sofia is just about 10.5 months old. She bfs 3 times a day and has one yogurt (4oz) a day, but I am wondering if that is enough calcium for her????

Here is our feeding schedule:
6:30 am BF
8:30 am Breakfast - 1/4 cup oatmeal mixed with water and 3-4 oz of fruit (water or juice in sippy cup)
10:30 am Snack - Yogurt (water or juice in sippy cup)
12:30 pm Lunch - 3 cubes of veggies and 1 cube of meat (water or juice in sippy cup)
2:30pm BF
4:30 pm Dinner - 1/4 cup of rice cereal with 1 fruit cube mixed in, 3 cubes of veggies and 1 cube of meat
6:30 BF

Does it look like she is getting all the nutrients and food groups she needs? All of her fruit and veggies has tofu mixed into them to get her more protein. She also still has not a huge interest in foods that are not pureed! :( So we do cheerios for finger foods, but that is about it! I'd love to have her start some cheese as finger foods.

I appreciate anyones help here!!!
TIA!

It sounds like to me she is eating plenty.  3 BF's and a yogurt is a lot of calcium, so I don't think you have anything to worry about at all.

And her solid intake looks great.

I wish my son would have eaten this much.  He is 14 mos old now and eats about 1/2 what your lo eats. 

I think you are doing great.  Try some cut of cheese or teh cheese crumbles they make now (in the U.S) or even string cheese is good.

* And just a though, you could always add some cream cheese or cheese in her puree.

You are so welcome.  BTW, I got some information from a friend today that took her son to a feeding clinic (at teh Childrens Hospital) and we are supposed to take my son also.  Anyhow they told her that even if her son did not drink milk, but ate cheese and yogurt everyday, he would be fine.

Trust me your lo is doing really really good compared to mine and a lot of people.

Rosie's mom-
Your routine sounds a lot like mine, but it looks like you only BF twice a day- is that right?  I'm trying to figure out whether our routine is working because our doctor says that my girls are low weight for their age... but I just can't seem to get them to eat any more than they do.  We currently nurse 3 times a day, but I am supposed to add another nursing time in.  How?  I they don't want it?
Thanks!

Thanks again, Wendy!! :)

2peasinapod...how much do your little ones weigh? Mine was only 13 lbs at her 9 month appointment and her doctor felt she was doing fine. Just gaining slowly....She is now 10 months and up to about 16 lbs....I was under the impression that as long as they are gaining they are okay......but if their doc said differently...I am not sure how to make them eat when they don't want to! Maybe try whole milk yogurt? Mine LOVES Yo Baby Organic yogurt.......just some thoughts.....Oh yea, I TOTALLY admire you for nursing two babies!! WOW!! One is still hard enough over here! :)

sometimes rosie "asks" for a third feed but yes we only nurse twice on most days.

she does get milk in her food, cheese and yogurt though as extra calcium.

rosie is small for her age too, but she's well in proportion and has always been small so i don't worry too much.

if they don't want extra nursing sessions and you need to get more calories in, then you need to look at the calorie content of what they eat as solids. if it's mostly fruits and vegetables then they need more carbs and fats.  rose gets rice or pasta  in her dinner, sometimes potato, or bread as well.

Sofiasmommy-  both of the girls were around 13 lbs at their 9 month check up.  We meet with a lactation consultant this past week who wants to do another weight check this week.  They both gained 1-2 ounces last week, so I know they are gaining. 
They are mainly eating fruits and veggies and yo baby yogurt.  I'll try to increase the carbs and fats.  They don't have teeth yet so I have been afraid to try bread and other chunky foods, but I know they can mash things with  their gums... so it is worth a try.

Thanks Rosies mom for the encouragement for nursing twins.  I didn't think I could do it this long, but I am so thankful I am.  I think our doctor and the lactation consultant are concerned that their slow weight increase is because my supply is not holding up.  They seem satisfied though.

rosie has only just this week developed her first 2 teeth. She's been on pieces of bread, toast and biscuits for about 6 weeks now i think.  she will eat tiny tiny sandwiches with soft fillings - sometimes i put pureed veg/fruit in, or soft cheese, toast is only lightly toasted (not dark brown)  and buttered with unsalted butter (more calories too here!!) and chopped into little squares about 1/2 inch size.

pasta is great because you can cook it really soft, as with rice too.

basically the rule of thumb is anything you can mash with a fork they can mash in their mouths.

I would expect twins to be smaller anyway, and often (not always) breastfed babies are smaller than their bottlefed counterparts. 

just noticed they were born a day after rosie!
