Advice on Snacks and dropping avo milk feed pls ;)

Hi,

DS is going to be 10months in a few days time (where has that time gone?!)

His routine at the mo is as follows:-

Wake up 6-7am
6oz milk feed at 7am
8-8:30 porridge with fruit followed by two fingers of toast and beaker of water
Nap from 9-10:30/11ish
12 lunch- I try to give him sandwiches most days with tuna Mayo, Philly, avocado, hummus etc plus a tomato cut up or cucumber with few carrot or sweetcorn crisps or ricecakes plus fruit, grapes, pear or raspberries
3pm 5oz bottle
5-5:30pm tea which is a proper hot meal with finger food veg followed by a yoghurt most days as H loves them ;)
7:15pm 8oz bottle but he tends to drink 7oz

He's always had a great appetite so doesn't tend to refuse feeds or food so far!

I was wondering when most people dropped the avo bottle? I'm thinking of trying it now and replacing it with beaker of water and snack. What snacks do yountend to give them? How much? I don't want to spoil tea. I guess with all these things it's just trial n error.

Also any idea on when they stop squashing sandwiches?! He doesn't squash his crisps but still squashes his sanis and veg finger foods. Any idea what age they start spoon-feeding themselves too?

Thanks so much ;)
Jessica

Hiya!

The squashing, mines 14 months and still likes to squash and crush things!

The spoon, we're just starting out with a spoon at the moment and we're quite a way off from her actually getting anything in her mouth!

I would say just give it a try with dropping the bottle. Offer a snack instead, we usually have a banana as a snack or some other fruit (melon is a fave at the moment). If thebottle is at 3 then I would just replace it chick.

There's a thread on here that I started about snacks. I'll try find it when I get onto my laptop later :D

Hi there,
M dropped her afternoon feed at about 11 to 12 mths. She was having afternoon snacks from about the same time. Can't quite remember what I was giving her to begin with - probably banana, breadsticks and dip, cubes of cheese.
At nursery they have a wide range of avo snacks, e.g. flapjack, scones, veg fingers and dip, pancakes and fruit, cheese and crackers, rice with Apple and cinnamon, pizza, oatcakes and cream cheese, etc.

They pick up spoon feeding at diff ages but m did pretty well with weetabix, fromage frais, mashed potato from about 11 mths. If she is hungry she still prefers to use hands though as can cram it in much more quickly!

Thanks ladies ;)

I decided to drop it today and sat H in his highchair with a beaker of water and gave him some fruit followed by a rusk which he demolished and looked very happy indeed!

Thanks for the tips on different snacks, some great ideas. I'm actually making some muffins tomorrow which H loves so will give him some.

Funny how they squash some foods but not others?!

I've just managed to get online and thought I'd check back in here before I looked for it and lo and behold you found it!!

Pleased it went well. I have to say I was a bit worried about dropping the feed because O just wasn't showing any signs of wanting rid of it but I gave her snacks and because she loves to eat she gave it up easily! (In fact she was saying bye to Nanna today and Nanna had some grapes that she had to share first before O let her go!)

Hiya!

Yes, I am pleased that she will eat t makes it soooo much easier. However, I can't just eat anything when I want to anymore otherwise she has to have some too, so if I just fancy some grapes she has to have them too, or a biscuit with a brew she has to have a bit of biscuit.

But going out is so much easier. We're going to a funeral on Tuesday and after at the wake there will be loads of food and I know that O will love it and be stealing food.
