My 8 month old son is never full. He always wants more solids, more nursing, more EVERYTHING (yes, he was a high needs infant!). My MIL and daycare provider (and everyone) are always saying that you cannot overfeed a baby and they will tell you when they are full. Is this true?
I feel that my son has eaten so much at times that he has made himself sick! We are feeding him (not baby led with solids), but he keeps opening his mouth and going "wild" for it.
At daycare, they now supplement him an extra 3-4 ounces of formula over what I pump (which isn't that much, as I only pump about 8 ounces for an 8 hour workday). But still, sometimes I wonder whether he needs to be cut back-- at least on solids).
He has always been fine with weight gain, growth, etc. He is not overweight at all, but with the introduction of solids, I am just worried that he might be overdoing it. The other day, he was vomiting and spitting up so much. he seemed happy but I just have this feeling he is eating too much... which is ironic, because I spent the first 7 months of his life obsessing that he might be underfed (as some a-hole pediatrician told me I had low milk supply when he was 4 weeks old. I never recovered and have been anxious about it ever since).
How can I tell if he is being overfed?
