A: Thanks for contacting me,
I understand your concern,
There is no full & perfect timetable :) for feeding a baby.
This is because the baby will NOT follow any time table!
You seem to be going on the right track, since we want to feed basically home made food in a slightly liquid consistency to the baby.
I would recommend using home cooked food, without any significant spices, and then mashing them up, and feeding the child,
There is no need for a specific timetable for most babies.
Check for weight gain, and talk to your pediatrician for any concerns,
You can get some more ideas here

Warm regards
Dr Gupta
