Hi J., at nine months, you can give her 3 mels a day plus snacks. At 9 months old my babies only had one bottle a day, in the morning while I got their cereal ready, the rest of the day they used a cup, for breakfast i would give them the baby cereal, plus fruit, and juice in a cup, then between breakfas5t and lunch I would give them a snack, it was usually ghram crackers, or dry cherrios, or fruit loops, animal crackers, things like that, then for lunch I would give them a junior jar of spegehtti, or macarroni, plus a junior jar of fruit, or canned fruit, and a cup of milk then between lunch and dinner i would give them a snack and something in their cup, and then for dinner i wood make mashed potatoes, and what ever meat and vegetable we had I would mix it in with the potatoes all chopped up, they loved it and it was filling, and of course they had some kind of fruit, and then about an hour before bedtime, I would give then a snack and just a little to drink. As far as portions goes, all kids are different, you can tell when a child is getting full. You don't want to over stuff your baby. J.
