Q.

feeding

Hi there,

I started giving my baby daughter cereal once a day when she turned 5 months(she is breastfed) and she now will eat about 5 teaspoons of cereal once a day. She turns 6 months today and I am not sure how to go about now with feedings...do I give her cereal twice a day or do I replace a second cereal feeding with one veggie puree feeding eg cereal in the morning and veggies in the evening? how many feedings of solid foods should she get per day at 6 months old?
