my baby is in her 8th month, and starting to bite in place of times she would normally eat. I see 2 reasons for it-She currently has two teeth coming in so I know that she could be biting and eating less due to that. Another reason she is biting because she's not into wanting to eat at that moment, or is done, as she becomes more independent. This has gone one for a couple of days so who knows, it could go away.
I have always aimed to feed her 8-10 times, 8 at the very least a day. (I count from her wakeup to midnight. she eats 2 times after that which I don't include) With her eating a bit less frequently the past few days I am concerned as I don't feed her much solids.
My question is, would she drop her feeds down a little now that she is older? Should I be less concerned about aiming for 8-10 feeds? She doesn't eat many solids. A very small amount every couple of days so solids aren't filling her up.
