I was going to post something similar here. I hear he should be eating cereal a couple times a day, some a couple servings of veggies and a couple of fruit, as well as a protien. I feel lucky if I get him to eat 1 jar of baby food, in one whole day. A couple of times I have gotten in three jars... he just isn't an eater. I have no suggestions for you, just the same question... how much? Today he had: gnawed on crackers and bisquits (didn't really swallow any), licked a couple of apple pieces. Ate 1 baby spoonful of avocado, 4 baby spoonfuls of zucchini, 2 baby spoonfuls of squash. That is it. Nursed vigerously 8x though.
Jewelry for yourself, or for a friend. Breastfeeding aides, beautiful bracelets, earings and more.
Well this is what a day with the 10 month old I keep is like...as far as eating anyway:
7:15 gets here...sometimes she has eaten sometimes not. Usually fix a 1/2 package of fruity oatmeal (not the baby kind) mixed with formula. If she hasn't eaten before she comes she will want the other half sometimes.
8:00 cup of juice (she will usually sip on this for an hour or so)
9:00 cup of formula
11:00 lunch time. Usually something like this. 1/2 banana, 1 cut up piece of pinapple, 3 vienna sausages, a small portion of beans, 1/4 slice of cheese and sometimes bread...along with her sippy cup of formula (I alternate the fruits and vegis...sometimes one of each, sometimes just fruits, and sometimes just vegis...depends on the kids moods...what I think they will eat best that day).
3:00 snack. About 5 saltines, or a small package of cheese crackers, or a single container of yogurt (the kind with fruit in it) with another sippy cup of formula or sometimes water.
Usually her parents feed her at about 6 at night and they usually report she eats pretty good at night as well.
If your baby is being nursed and seems satisfied I wouldn't worry that he isn't getting all the recomended solids yet...he will get the nutrients from you.
