I am wondering what the normal amount is that you all are feeding your babies. Kaytlynn is a SMALL baby. She only weighs 16lbs at one year old. I think she looks and acts VERY happy and healthy, but you know how the docs. are, she's not on the charts. I'm hoping someone else here has not started solids until recently, I don't know anyone here that is breastfeeding, let alone delaying solids. Around here they push them at three and four months. I get the whole, she should be eating three meals EVERY day, thing everytime she's at the doc.
Anyway, we didn't start giving her three solids a day until she turned one, that was on the 22nd of Aug. I have been nursing and then giving her food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Cereal in the morning, one jar of stage two baby food for lunch, and then one for dinner. She also has little bites of our food, not much at ALL just a very small amount, and then gerber puffs and wheels sometimes during the day. She NEVER ever acts hungry, and she doesn't nurse long, but she never has. She's always eaten for only about 5-10 min. on one side until recently and she won't have much to do with my right side (Its always been slow and now I think it's not as full) so she starts on the left and ends on the right sometimes.
So what do you all consider MEALS for your babies still on babyfood. She can eat reg. food, but I prefer the babyfood for as long as she will take it, as I think it is much more healthy than the ingredients in some of our food. Thanks for any help. Sorry this is soo long, I just wanted to give a little background. Oh, she also has about four ounces of water with maybe an ounce of juice a day. Thanks for everything!!
