Re: Feeding an enthusiastic solids eater
DD is about the same age and very into solids. I have been feeding her 3 meals and a couple of snacks a day for the past few months. She demands food when she sees someone else eating and we are a family of grazers, so that is often. DS was not like this at all, but DD is different. You mention the hassle...are you feeding her what you are eating or preparing separate meals? DD eats veggies and fruit cut up small, bread, pasta, cereal, cheese, yogurt, meat cut finely, etc. and aside from yogurt, she self feeds off her tray. She nurses a couple of times at night and probably 6-8 times during the day. In total, she probably eats a half cup of food a day. At this age, DS ate probably a couple of tablespoons. Just from the perspective of following your baby's lead, if she wants to eat more, you might consider picking things up.
DS 1/2006 9 lb. 2 oz. 22 in.
DD 10/2008 8 lb, 2 oz. 20 in.
