My baby boy is 8.5 months old. He's 19.5lbs and 74 cm long. He's exclusively breastfed since birth. He breast feeds at least 6 times in a day and at least 2 times at night. He is also a very very busy, constantly moving, crawling baby (I'm also thinking he's a high needs baby and has been since birth)
He has always been a great eater. however, since we have started solids over 2 months ago, he has been totally obsessed with food. He loves it. There is no single item he won't eat. When he sees a bowl of food he cries and wants it right away. He eats about 3-4 (give or take 6 oz. each) homemade baby meals a day, plus various snacks. My friends and family members are astonished when they see the amount of food he is able to devour.
Is it normal that a baby can eat so much??
Could his constant hunger be a sign of a poor milk supply on my part?
