After checking out this WHO page on complementary foods that borislava posted in this thread started by veggiegirl228, I suddenly realized: I may not be feeding DD enough!
I hadn't even considered this...I've just been bf'ing and giving DD some food to play with or eat (her choice ) twice daily, offering two different items (e.g. oatmeal in the a.m., yams in the p.m.) She rarely actually ends up eating more than maybe a tablespoon or two's worth unless it's O's. According to the WHO page, she "should" be getting 3/4 C at each meal. At 9 months and counting, should I really be offering more? I mean, I know bm is her main source of nutrition, but am I actually going too slow with complementary foods? We do a mostly baby-led approach, but I'm not adverse to spoon feeding her some things, as with the yoghurt. What are you/did you do at 9 mos? What are you doing now, if your LO is a little older?
I feel fine about what I've been doing, gut-instinct-wise, but maybe I've missed the boat on this one? I would love to hear what others are doing and what they observe in their LOs regarding their intake of solids, etc.
