Infant Eating Schedule

The eating schedule for an infant will change dramatically during the first year of life. In the first four to six months, a baby only needs to drink breast milk or formula. After that, you should start introducing your child to solid foods (such as iron-fortified infant cereal).
 
During the time that you introduce cereal and pureed meats, fruits, and vegetables to your baby, you will gradually decrease the amount of milk or formula in your child's diet. By the end of the first year, 50 percent of an infant's nutrition will come from complementary foods; the rest from breast milk or formula.
