~Food then bottle or
~Bottle then food??
LOL this stumps me, at the moment he is having a bottle and then food an hour later....
Not sure If that is right, Any advice?
He is happy and content with how it is but I was just wondering if this is the norm

I think it's milk first until about 9 months. Just keep in mind that milk is supposed to be their main source of nutrition for the first 12 months so there is plenty on time to gradually shift the food/bottle ratio.
If he's happy just keep going as you have been.

I just had my 6 month check and this came up. She said at 6 months milk is more important than food, and by 12 months food is more important than milk, so gradually make the transition in the middle somewhere.

I did milk first until 12 months. "Food is for fun until they are 1". I didn't gradually transition, just offered food first once they got to 12 months.
