    Default Is it enuf?

    I BF my 10mo old daughter about 4 times a day and 1-2 times a nite(though these are short sessions just to fall asleep). She eats breakfast, lunch and dinner and gets little water and occassionally some juice. No other fluids. She pees throughout the day(probably 7-8 times) and nite as well. Until 6months she was gaining well. Between her 6th and 9th mo checkup she gained weight but not much. Her height was fine as well. She is active and doing well otherwise.

    She eats a homemade baby cereal (made of millet and some grains like mung beans) for breakfast. For lunch and dinner she eats rice+lentils+veggies+yoghurt. She gets fruits for evening snack.

    cool sounds like healthy solids!
    I always figured that I could offer to nurse more often with a baby that age.
    either right before bed or right after nap.
    Does baby sleep all night with out nursing?
    sometimes when they start sleeping all night they have to nurse more often during the day to get weight gain.

    Sounds okay!! I would make sure she nurses at least 4 times in 24 hours until at least 12 months old age. Since you are at 4 times you sounds okay. I found this link helpful.
