Ok, My baby will be 8 mths. on the 22nd and he LOVVVES his carrots, and sweet potatoes and peas. Actually, I think he just loves eating food in general. I'm not sure when it is good to have him stop eating because it seems that he'll just eat and eat. I always BF first. He's usually on each side from 5 to 10 min. (about 8 to 10 times a day). He then has at least one carrot steamed and mashed up OR a small sweet potato OR a whole avocado with a couple slices of banana mashed in. I give this to him at least twice a day and sometimes 3 times. He acts like he'd eat more and sometimes I give it to him, but then it seems like he throws up more. Is this too much? I guess my main concern is hoping that he's getting all the BM he needs and not filling up on solids. His old doctor had me start him on solids I think way too soon and so his desire for the solid food has increased to a greater amount, I think a little sooner than I was thinking would be best for him. Does anyone have any advice??
I also would like for him to start feeding himself, but I'm not sure how to start that. I've tried cutting up the little steamed carrots and presenting them to him, but he doesn't seem to know what to do.
