    Default Third meal

    Should I add a third meal

    Dd has been eating tow meals a day for the past month, she will be 7months in a few days. Imaginer her about 6 ounces total. But lately she has been attacking our food when we eat lunch so I will giver her some, if i can and she goes nuts for more, grabbing my hand. I do a combo of blw and I steam carrots, sweet potato, apples and purred it lightly and store in freezer. occasionally I will giver her barley cereal.

    Oh and she only nurses with e occasional pump milk when I am away. I am a sahm.

    Oh and I am not wanting to add third meal n hopes she sleeps thru the night b.c it won't work. She wakes every 2-3 hours regadless if I giver her dinner or not.

    If she's grabbing for food and you're doing BLW, I think there's no harm in putting some finger-food in front of her and seeing what happens.
