Owen will be 11months on Thursday. He's been having breakfast and dinner for a while now, I always nurse him before giving him solids. He can feed himself fairly well and loves food. But I don't feel like he really regulates himself like he should - or maybe he truly needs as much food as he's eating. He will eat and eat and many times will just all of a sudden throw up his food. He does have reflux, so it's hard to know if it's happening because of that or because he's eaten too much.
For breakfast I give him some cut-up fruit and cheerios on his tray. And I feed him a little more than 1/8cup of cereal mixed with water and about 3oz of fruit.
For dinner I give him some of what we're having, about 1.5oz of fruit and 3oz of vegetables (sometimes mixed with cereal if we're not having a lot that he can have). Tonight he ate 1/4 of an avacado, 1.5oz fruit, and 1.5oz veggie mixed with 1/8cup cereal.
In the last 6 weeks he has gained 12oz. This is below the lower average for his age. He weighs 20lbs 12oz. This is a major drop in weight gain for him. I'm not really concerned as he's started to roll around a ton to get to things. But, I wonder if that means I'm not feeding him enough solids. The lactation consultant at breastfeeding group said I should start adding in lunch. So yesterday and today I gave him lunch, which was cut-up fruit and veggies, and 3oz of pureed veggie. I feel like he eats a lot but maybe that's because Emma didn't like food much. My friends think I'm not feeding him enough.
