I'm wondering how many times a day your LOs eat solids. I tend to offer food about three times a day (an hour after I BF) and she always seems really excited to eat, but doesn't eat a whole lot (maybe a tablespoon at a time). I'm not worried that she's not eating enough since she started eating at 6MO. I guess I'm just wondering if it's okay to offer food frequently. I'm always watching her cues and stop feeding when she loses interest.
BTW we aren't doing BLS pretty much b/c I worry about choking and I've actually enjoyed doing the purees and making her food, but I'm really trying to do the best I can of letting her lead the way. I let her grab the spoon a lot to feed herself and I never try to force it. I'll feed her as long as she looks at the spoon and opens her mouth and stop when she seems interested in everything else and doesn't look at the spoon anymore. Sorry if this seems more like a rambling than a question...I just feel like since she's started solids I'm questioning myself a lot. I'll worry that she's not eating enough solids and never will and then after I feed her I worry that I'm feeding her too much and she's not getting enough of my milk
I put my actual question in bold
