    Default How much to give

    I have been giving my 6 month old rice cereal for the past month, and just 2 weeks weeks ago I started bananas and pears. I give her 2 tablespoons of cereal and 1-2 tablespoons of fruit in the am, and the same thing in the eves. Is this to much, or not enough. She still nurses every 2-3 hrs during the day and up at least once at night.

    Default Re: How much to give

    We just give what he says he wants to eat. Like breast feeding on demand, we let him lead how much he wants. When he is done he will look away or keep his mouth shut. We do not force him to finish anything he does not want. I also try to remember how long it takes for the tummy to tell the brain it is full, so we feed him slowly so he does not fill up to fast and get too full. So far that has been working for us. We do part BLS and part jarred food for convenience as he does not let me cook most nights for us let alone for him too.
