hi all - just going to jump on in - our baby is newly 7 months old - we started solids a few days after he turned 6 months old... I'm confused as to how often and how much he should be eating. He is not sleeping thru the night anymore, (and did from about 3 months till about 5) and I'm just wondering if maybe he's hungry?? asking about it on another forum, a lot of moms told me their babies (not sure how many BF) were/are eating much more than my little guy at this age -
he has one solid meal a day - about 2 tablespoons (measured dry) of rice cereal and about 1/3 - 1/2 of a stage 1 veggie, or sometimes a fruit... he nurses frequently, and is somewhat of a "snacker" - he is very interested in what is going on around him these days!
anyway - should he be eating more than one meal? I'm worried he might be hungry! any advice would me much appreciated from other BF moms...
we go in for his 6 mo appt this week (yes, a month late )- we had to switch to Kaiser recently and had trouble getting an appt) so I will also ask about it then too, obviously - I know Breast Milk is the most important thing for him right now, but just wanted to make sure the reason he is waking so much at night isn't b/c he needs more solids... He is a pretty big guy, I estimate about 20 lbs now... has always been on the 90-95th%tile of the charts.... Thanks!
