  • Here’s an example of a meal schedule to help you plan a nutritious day for your Supported Sitter.

At the Supported Sitter stage, solid foods are an important way to introduce new tastes. Breastmilk and formula should remain her main sources of nutrition. Offer breastmilk or formula first and then solid foods such as Gerber Single Grain Cereals and 1st FOODS®, and watch for fullness cues.

This a guide based on typical amounts consumed during this stage. Your infant may consume more or less, depending on her needs. Check with your doctor if you have questions about what your baby needs.
