Re: Eating too much?
There's a real variety of eating patterns when it comes to babies who are starting solids. Some will eat a huge amount, other barely anything. The key is to nurse first (thereby maximizing breast milk intake), only offer healthy solids, and trust the baby. Breastfeeding is supposed to help children learn to recognize their own satiation cues... So you just have to trust your baby to eat as much as she needs, and no more.
As long as she is nursing at least 5-6 times a day, I wouldn't cut back on solids. If less than that, I would consider it.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
